The ancient merchants of Tyre sailed the high seas and plumbed their depths in search of a rare shellfish, valued for its rich, purple dye. The Greek word kalchaino, to ponder, literally means in search of the purple fish.
Like the search for the purple fish, Jesus goes to remarkable lengths in seeking after his most valued treasure lost, broken, hurting, oppressed people. He invites us on a grand adventure to help him connect with these purple fish too.
In this inspiring, practical book, Mark O. Wilson offers a fresh, new approach for sharing Christ with others, especially for those who feel inadequate and intimidated by witnessing. Purple Fish shows how it can be a delightful adventure of faith, filling your own soul in the process.
Through amazing and often humorous stories as well as many practical suggestions Wilson encourages the reader to rethink what it means to bring lost people to Jesus. It will leave readers saying, I haven t thought of it that way before. I can do that!

It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing.
PURPLE FISH is the best audiobook I've listened to on teaching the gospel and Christ. It's not preachy at all. I loved the beginning where he talks about fishing and explains the 'purple fish.' When he visited his friend Burt and sang "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" was amazing. It made him smile and remember that he walks with Jesus in everything he does. I also liked when he talked about switching the word wretch in "Amazing Grace" because he didn't see himself in that way.
This book was ALL goodness. Every single word, phrase, and sentence was a gem. He talks about unconditional love and prayer and what it really means to worship. We worship with our hearts. This is an audiobook I know I'll listen to again. I loved the stories MARK O. WILSON shared. One message, "Be You." Be who you are. And be unconditional and don't judge.
CLATON BUTCHER. He was Fantastic reading this audiobook. His narration was positive and upbeat with perfect inflections. He made this an especially great listen. You could hear the feeling the author has in his words. Claton Butcher messaged his words spot on with heart and soul. What I'm left with is WOW!!
Audiobook received in exchange for an honest review.
I really enjoyed the stories used to help make the concepts easy to relate to and understand.
The story of the man in hospice; how he showed no signs of acknowledging their visit. Yet, his family saw a change in his life. A great reminder that we may not see the change in people's hearts and that's ok; we need to share Jesus.
Yes. I really enjoyed this book. The book was captivating and the narrator was really easy to listen to. I listened while traveling; it was like having an old friend talking to me. I will listen to more from this narrator.
Really enjoyed this book!
