The day is dawning.
The air is cool, and the water is still.
It’s the perfect time to “set the hook,” and go fishing.
Plenty of men like to go fishing. But it is the rare few who like to go “fishing for men.” In his engaging memoir, FOURTH-QUARTER FISHING, A Memoir of an Engineer’s International Mission Trips, author and engineer Tony Hopper shares a series of stories gleaned from over ten years of mission trips to such countries like Mexico, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Kenya, Togo, Nigeria, Ghana, and Malawi – beginning with the author’s first mission trip to Chicago back in 1968. In this life journey set to the printed page, Hopper relates events as they happened -- some amusing, some interesting, some risky… but all transformational and worth each experience gained.
This uplifting book is a testament to Hopper’s many attempts to “set the hook” as a follower of Jesus, fishing for men himself. As an added bonus, it includes images from several photo safaris to some of the most famous national reserves in Africa, including the Maasai Mara in Kenya, which help to shed light on the countless people the author preached the “Heart of Jesus” (The Beatitudes) to along the journey.
So get still, and cast your line deep into these pages. Once your hook is set on Jesus, there is nothing you can do that will escape His loving grace.
