From Fishermen to Fishers of Men

Luke 5:1-11

This book has nothing to do with this series or the Gospel of Luke, but if you’re looking for a good book on faith and culture, I borrowed the title for this series from Mark Sayer’s book, The Road Trip that Changed the World. It’s one of the best books I’ve read on why and how our culture has become the way it has in the post-Christian, secular West.
