An old fisherman lives alone on a craggy, windswept coastline. His home is built from the wreckage of long-gone ships. Each day, he embarks on a treacherous path to the sea where he collects the fishes that he delivers to the leper colony to help feed the homeless children at the mission. He is a kind and caring widower. While on his daily journey, he encounters a wounded merchild, but he doesn’t know the child has been left as bait for him by the merfolk queen. She wishes to use his bones to decorate her palace. She also believes that being kind and caring is a weakness. The old man works to keep the merchild safe and to resist the queen. A fairy-tale for children, The Fisherman and His Foundlings shares a story about the importance of being kind and caring.

Simon Peter loved Jesus Christ with all of his heart, soul, mind, and strength - but he loved Him imperfectly because he was human. Although Peter was wholly committed to Christ, he did many things wrong. There must have been days when he wondered if he'd ever make it. I'm a lot like that, and you probably are too. That's why we identify with Peter so well, and have so much to learn from his example. This study focuses on Peter's relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Each chapter deals with a critical episode in their relationship from which we can draw some valuable life lessons. The study questions at the end of each lesson will encourage us to apply what we learn from Peter's example in our daily lives.

Now he’s back, and he says he can prove it. Six hundred years ago, a forbidden relationship between the royal children of Brunei set into motion a chain of events that will end with the death of a king...or the death of a god. As the story of Lisan’s true intentions – and what he was really doing in those years away – unravels, the story of those doomed royal children also spins to its inevitable conclusion.

ISSN: 2397-9607 Issue 231 In this 231st issue of the Baba Indaba’s Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba narrates the Arabian Nights tale of “The Story of the Fisherman” Plus four more Tales from the Arabian Nights. Also included in this bumper edition are “the story of king yoonán and the sage doobán”, “the story of the husband and the parrot”, “the story of the envious wezeer and the prince and the ghooleh” and lastly, “the story of the young king of the black islands” In The Story of the Fisherman Baba tells how a poor fisherman unexpectedly hauls in the carcass of an ass in his nets. Even though his catch was worthless he gave praise to God for his ability to work and catch fish. He brought the carcass ashore and laid it out to dry thinking the skin may be of value and returned to his fishing. On the second cast of his nets he found them to be even heavier than the first. Still he dragged them ashore. On examining the nets he found in it only a large jar, full of sand and mud. On seeing this, his heart was troubled as he wondered what he and his family were to eat that night. He put the jar aside and a third time, cast the net, and waited till it had sunk and was motionless: he then drew it out, and found in it a quantity of broken jars and pots. Upon seeing this, he raised his head towards heaven, and said, O God, Thou knowest that I cast not my net more than four times; and I have now cast it three times! Then—exclaiming, In the name of God!—he cast the net again into the sea, and waited till it was still; when he attempted to draw it up, but could not, for it clung to the bottom. He worked away at the nets and found in it a bottle of brass, filled with something, and having its mouth closed with a stopper of lead, bearing the impression of the seal of our lord Suleymán. At the sight of this, the fisherman was rejoiced, and said, This I will sell in the copper-market; for it is worth ten pieces of gold. He then shook it, and found it to be heavy, and said, I must open it, and see what is in it, and store it in my bag; and then I will sell the bottle in the coppermarket. So he took out a knife, and picked at the lead until he extracted it from the bottle. He then laid the bottle on the ground, and shook it, that its contents might pour out; but there came forth from it nothing but smoke, which ascended towards the sky, and spread over the face of the earth; at which he wondered excessively. After a little while, the smoke collected together, and was condensed, and then became agitated, and was converted into an 'Efreet (a Genie), whose head was in the clouds, while his feet rested upon the ground: his head was like a dome: his hands were like winnowing forks; and his legs, like masts: his mouth resembled a cavern: his teeth were like stones; his nostrils, like trumpets; and his eyes, like lamps. And so begins the story of the fisherman and the genie which takes many twists and turns along the way with altogether surprising results. And just what are they you ask?

After tracking down a crazed sniper last year, homicide detective Mike Houston opted to leave Boston for the isolated mountains of Maine. He adjusted nicely to chopping his own firewood, relaxing in his log cabin, and simply enjoying the solitude of the mountains. But then his former partner, Lt. Anne Bouchard, pays him a visit and dangles the words serial killer in front of him. And suddenly he finds himself back in the game beside her—though not “officially.” Desperate for money to get her next fix, Cheryl Guerette, a known prostitute and heroin junkie, was last seen climbing into the car of an unknown John. Bouchard suspects that nameless John is a serial killer she’s been hunting—a man known to the BPD as The Fisherman. The suspect has been snatching homeless women and prostitutes off the streets from Portland to Boston, and Bouchard needs Houston if she’s going to catch him. Against Houston’s better judgment, Bouchard also turns to mob boss Jimmy O’Leary for advice. Not only does O’Leary have a hand in most of the crime that occurs in Boston, but he also knows a few Russian bosses and pimps who are angry that their employees are no longer on the job. With help from the darker side of Boston, Bouchard and Houston hope to locate The Fisherman before it’s too late for Cheryl and his other victims.

Few New Testament characters are as fascinating as Simon Barjona, the man called Peter-a reluctant disciple who changed the face of Christianity. For more than twenty-five years, author and pastor Larry Huntsperger has spent hundreds of hours studying New Testament documents in preparation for writing this fictional first-person account of the life of this enigmatic disciple. The result is a novel that faithfully follows Scripture while offering a powerful, fresh narration of the story of one of Christianity's greatest men. In the fast-paced chapters of The Fisherman, readers will relive Peter's initial resistance to the pull he feels toward Jesus and his ministry. They'll walk with Peter alongside Jesus through the events of the Gospels and catch intimate glimpses of the disciples' personalities. They'll even "feel" the dust on the roads as familiar stories are transformed into original, spellbinding accounts from Peter's life. This fascinating novel will help readers "to see the Master as a man. For, if we cannot see him correctly as man, we have no hope of understanding him correctly as our God."
