MINNEAPOLIS, May 31 /Christian Newswire/ -- For Al and Ron Lindner, it all began 40 years ago when the two young brothers escaped the big city life of Chicago and moved to Minnesota to pursue their dream of becoming professional sport fishermen. Since then the Lindners have been leaders during the most revolutionary years in sport fishing history, co-founding an innovative and successful tackle companies, as well as the largest multimedia sport fishing network in North America, In-Fisherman, Inc. In the process they've traveled the world sharing the secrets they've learned about trophy angling--and about faith and eternal values. In First Light on the Water, the Lindners recount their rise to the top of the sport fishing world, as well as the pathways that brought them to faith in God.
Al Lindner says that while he and Ron have had the privilege of building successful careers in sport fishing, God has also allowed them to use this venue to share their faith in Christ. "When I first started to share my faith in Christ with others, I found myself naturally using fishing experiences to illustrate and explain God's kingdom," notes Al. "God has used the gift he has given Ron and me in this sport, and has taken the fishing-related experiences we've had through our years as professional anglers for His own purposes."
Ron Lindner says that for many years he and Al were no different from most people when it came to spiritual things. "It wasn't that we didn't believe in God," he recalls. "It's just that we didn't care that much. But when we were confronted with God's gentle grace all that changed."
In First Light on the Water Al and Ron retell many of the real-life events and experiences God has used to illuminate their lives with an understanding that he is alive and at work today in the lives of people. "God has shown Himself to Ron and me in the most routine events we experience in our lives, as well as in the moments of trauma, danger, and high-charged adventure," says Al. "He has shown us that we never need to walk in the darkness where we have been, but in the sweet, clear light of life in Jesus Christ."
