Product Description

Contrary to popular belief, we do not have to be perfect to do God's work. Look no further than the twelve disciples whose many weaknesses are forever preserved throughout the pages of the New Testament. Jesus chose ordinary men - fisherman, tax collectors, political zealots - and turned their weakness into strength, producing greatness from utter uselessness. Join John MacArthur as he draws principles from Christ's careful, hands-on training of the original twelve disciples for today's modern disciple - you!

    An Insight into the Apostles

    John uses insights gathered from both scripture and other historical documents to help us paint a picture of each of these rather ordinary men. We begin to see ourselves in each of these everyday men who Jesus chose to use in extraordinary ways. We have used the book for a small group, and everyone has said how they better comprehend those scriptures and it has given real life and personality to each of the disciples. The book makes you slow down and truly contemplate the time and events and how Jesus was able to capitalize on each of these mens strengths and weaknesses.

    The book delivered far more than I had expected.

    If you want to get an inside look at who Jesus chose to spread Christianity to the world, look no further. Dr. MacArthur does a great job at pulling out the ordinary characteristics of the extraordinary work Jesus did with these common, earthly minded men. If you have doubts, or have had doubts, how God could use you to further His kingdom, those thoughts will change after reading this book. This book was used in my Men's Bible study and it fell nothing short of amazingly insightful. Thank you John MacArthur!!

    I would recommend this to all believers and doubters.

    I just finished this book & it was absolutely WONDERFUL! I had never studied the disciples in depth but this book taught me so much! It was inspiring and convicting! So many times do we act JUST like the 12 chosen by the Savior. These imperfect, weak, ordinary men JESUS chose to use for the spreading of His gospel! God can use anyone! From fishermen to tax collectors....even you & me! I recommend this book for everyone! Men, Women, Teenagers, its a book for anyone!
