Marianne Evansabout this book: • How did you come up with your title?
Antioch is the place in the Bible where Christians were first referred to as Christians. Fisher Men harkens back to Jesus' commission to his Disciples to become 'Fishers of Men.' I loved the combination of the two, especially as it pertains to the overall foundation of the Fisher Men of Antioch series.
• How much of the book is based in real life?
A great deal of The Stronghold is based on real-life circumstance. Farm families like the Fisher's form the backbone of middle America, a place I'm honored to call home. Farm families are underrated (and underestimated!) for their impact on our country and world as a whole. They hold to the faith of God's provision in weather, growth, nourishment, and trust in His faithfulness. A beautiful concept, I thought. :-)
• What makes this book special to you?
The Stronghold and the entire Fisher Men of Antioch series are special to me because the concept is based on my in-laws, the Hilgers. John and Mary are lifelong Indiana farmers who raised their daughters amidst the acres of soybeans I describe in the series. Their help and guidance figured prominently in the research and the heart and faith that goes into farming over 400-acres of land.
