Synopsis: Any fisherman can attest to this undeniable truth: when it is just you, a fishing pole and the water, God's loving presence can feel closer to you more than anything else. In the pages of "Fishing For God--And Vice Versa", author and longtime angler Bill Rooney confirms this truth from personal experience, feeling the peace of God while bobbing in the waterways of the United States and even Canada. He recalls several of his favorite fishing and camping memories, as well as those of friends and recognized authority figures. The articles comprising "Fishing For God -And Vice Versa" are published pieces from the Rooney's years as a freelance writer for various magazines, combining fishing tips, stories and even scriptures that include one of the most appreciated fisherman, Simon Peter. The truth he hopes to reveal is that God calls us to become more like disciples of Jesus, embodying fishers of men and not just of fish.
