The Eye Of God

A Fisherman’s Tale

Hi <<First Name>>,

Simon, later named Peter by Jesus of Nazareth, is a common fisherman in Galilee. A carefree braggart, Simon is devastated when his wife dies in childbirth. His call to follow Jesus changes his life.

The Eye of God: A Fisherman’s Tale takes place during forty years of Roman rule by four successive Emperors. Simon Peter, now a ‘fisher of men,’ is determined to save Jesus from a Roman crucifixion, but when he fails he spends the rest of his days preaching Jesus’ startling new message.

This old story is told in a new way. Was Mary Magdalene the first Apostle in Rome?

How did the men of the Dead Sea Scrolls connect with the life of Simon Peter?

Why did the Emperor Caligula withdraw his order to have his life-size statue placed in the Temple of the Jews in Jerusalem, and what affect did that have on the followers of Jesus?

Why was ‘King’ Herod Antipas banished from Galilee?

How did Mary, the mother of John Mark, meet Simon Peter?

Was Simon Peter in Babylon when he wrote his letter to the scattered Christians of the Diaspora?

The Eye of God: A Fisherman’s Tale seeks to answer these questions with a fresh narrative telling.

Praise for The Eye of God

“Many of Jesus’ parables are woven into the story. Some dialog feels too modern for the time but that might have been an attempt to reach the modern reader. The novel is primarily about Simon Peter and his relationship with the Messiah, Jesus, even at the expense of his own family. It is well written and should appeal to those who enjoy stories based on the bible.”
Debra Spidal, Historical Novel Review Online

“... a truly impressive work of scholarship. It”s an easy read in a winsome style.”
Thomas Trzyna, Professor of English, Seattle Pacific University.

“This well-researched depiction of the life of Simon as he becomes Peter, “fisher of men,” is an engrossing tale—full of savor. I was totally engaged in this imaginative and intriguing story. There are so many passages that have lingered in my thoughts because of the authors elegant and precise descriptions. Her background research and references also add much to this great depiction of life during Roman times.”
Amazon Review

“Excellent book. Written from the perspective of St. Peter who meets Jesus and starts following him. The book is biblically accurate, following the Gospel of Mark in the text. Makes the life of Jesus and Peter come alive.”
Amazon Review

“Truly well written and compelling. The people of the Bible brought to life. I really feel as though I have a clearer understanding of the cultural climate in the middle east during the life of Christ, and why His news was so compelling.”
