The Big Fisherman, Houghton Mifflin Co., Boston, CHAPTER I. It was a calm, early summer noon in the southern mountains of Arabia. Sheltering the King's well-guarded domain, a mile above and a dozen miles east of the Dead Sea, motionless masses of neighbourly white clouds hung suspended from a remote blue ceiling. "The Big Fisherman," is set before "The Robe" and tells the story of the apostle Peter. It's a great book. It focuses alot on a young Arabian couple which kind of takes the attention away from Peter but it's not an overwhelming distraction. I loved the way Mr Douglas worked the words and acts of Jesus of Nazereth into the story, very well done/5(58).
