Rooney ‘hooks’ readers with unique and comical perspective on fishing and God

Fishing for God–and vice versa

The stories are true, they come from the heart, and they reflect the incredibly uplifting essence of God's natural world.

With his new book, Fishing for God–and vice versa, ($16.99, paperback, 9781498422925; $8.99, e-book, 9781498422932) Bill Rooney will charm readers with his one-of-a-kind adventure-loving personality that is captured within the text, photos, and the occasional fish recipe or practical tip. His mission is to show readers that it is possible for the delightful pastime of fishing to bring more than just a peaceful day and a full stringer of fine eating. This author says that fishing and its environs bring the “Big Guy” right into the boat with him.

“The stories are true, they come from the heart, and they reflect the incredibly uplifting essence of God's natural world,” states the author. “It would please me to no end if readers who already love fishing—and especially those who may be drawn to the sport by these words—can come to sense that the Father of us all is ‘holding the rod.’”

Bill Rooney has fished now for seventy years, in places ranging from Hawaii to Virginia's Blue Ridge; the Bahamas to the brawling rivers and sky-blue lakes in the Rockies; Maine to Montana to Mexico. For forty-five years he was an editor for various outdoor-oriented publications, including fifteen years on the editorial staff of Outdoor Life magazine in New York City, having spent the last six as managing editor.

Xulon Press, a division of Salem Communications, is the world’s largest Christian self-publisher, with more than 12,000 titles published to date. Retailers may order Fishing for God–and vice versa through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors. The book is available online through xulonpress.com/bookstore, amazon.com, and barnesandnoble.com.
