A fascinating read and take on an "unknown" fisherman. Makes me wonder what happened to him, and others who fished with Jesus' "fishermen."

A most interesting and thought-provoking entry! Even though I don't usually gravitate to fictionalized Bible stories, I see an intriguing idea demonstrated here: a fictitious man used as a vehicle to link historical events. I really like this approach to the genre.

Very good writing--I felt as if I knew this man...

...except, why was a fisherman buying pigs? And why would he never catch another fish? I feel dense, as if I'm missing something obvious. I'm sure it's just me.

Love the way you have his story in the foreground, with another very important story in the background. Kind of like a candid photo.

Pretty good. I liked this different POV and especially the piece with him catching the fish. ^_^
