August Ericson's father had been a fisherman, and his own vision of becoming a fisher of men meant learning how to fry fish.
The tales of what happened then, when August and his wife Jill bought over a shabby cafe in Lincoln, were almost unbelievable. What would happen in a fish and chip shop adorned by texts? A restaurant with Bible verses on the menu and tracts on the tables?
August retired from business four years ago having produced tens of thousands of fish suppers and mountains of mushy peas for twenty years in 'Sign of the Fish'.
Although it never became a multinational enterprise, the shop proved profitable. Not only in this world but more importantly for the next world. Many who came for fish and chips ended up with faith in Christ.
Other Christians dedicated their businesses to God, and that wasn't all that happened either... This is an account of an implicit faith in God. A truly remarkable, challenging story.
The former public school boy who became a fish fryer tells of a crippling accident, a tender love story and an adventure in faith and chips.
