Locating life’s real treasures

One pirate’s voyage to acquire God’s blessings


LONGWOOD, FL " GASPAR ?"the Last of the Buccaneers” ($18.99, paperback, 9781613792438) by Steve Barber takes readers on a journey through one man’s adventures to exercise a new found faith and, during the process, finds character integrity and hope. Through the life of a resourceful man of the sea, Barber explains that anyone can find the inspiration to persevere through the most daunting trials. Barber believes that in a world of disbelief, despair and discouragement, there is always hope. GASPAR portrays the message that The Christian life is a thrilling walk of faith and adventure.


GASPAR depicts a story of how the main character, Jose Gaspar, discovers life’s real treasure in a world of corruption, deceit and political intrigue. As the 18th century draws to a close, a mystic figure appears on the time line of history whose presence is even felt today. Barber narrates that some would call him a pirate sailing under the black flag of death while others would call him just a ghost-a figment of the imagination. Although to those who knew him, he was just an ordinary man who came full circle in life. In GASPAR, the man comes to realize that life’s greatest treasures are the simple pleasures and the God given blessings that are regularly bestowed upon the children of God. He sails the east coast of Florida during some the most turbulent times and aids a young nation during the political unrest of 1812. Through love, political intrigue and adventures at sea, Jose Gaspar becomes ?"the Last of the Buccaneers.”


Steve Barber is a local pastor who was born and raised in Tampa, Florida. His family has resided there for four generations. He is married to his wife of 33 years, Sheri. Their four children: Joshua, Heather and her husband Ben, Daniel and Alaina also live in Tampa. They have one granddaughter, the apple of their eye, Gabby.
