By the world’s standards, Joe Kissack had it all. Money, sports cars and limousines, a mini mansion, and a successful career as a Hollywood executive. But the high-pressured lifestyle drove him into an addition to drugs and alcohol and he soon found himself at rock bottom.

And that is where he met Jesus…

During the summer of 2006, an unbelievable story hit the newswires—the rescue of three Mexican fishermen who had spent nine months drifting on the Pacific Ocean. Joe sets out to find these men and tell their story.

In the book The Fourth Fisherman, Joe writes about the journey of the fisherman lost at sea and interweaves his own story of being lost in the world. Faith and a tattered Bible gave the fishermen hope. A friend and a Bible was the lifeline that caused Joe to come to faith in Christ.

If you want to read a story that will strengthen your faith, I recommend The Fourth Fisherman.
