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!

    This well-written book lives up to it's title with as much background information as possible found in the bible. It lets us know that "ordinary" people have a chance to serve our Savior in a profound way just as the disciples did with their human frailties as long as we depend on our Savior and not ourselves.

    So you think you know the disciples because you attended Sunday School as a kid? You'll probably be amazed by this book. MacArthur mostly refers to scripture (which is good). But he also adds findings from historical research that both add to the testimony of these historic 12 men, and add to our understanding of them.

    I went though this book with the workbook in a men's group, and all of us were rolling our eyes at the end. MacArthur makes great leaps of fantasy that are not in scripture, then paints pathetic pictures of the the 12 apostles.

    This book might be applicable to those who are unsaved - but certainly not to Christians. The characteristics MacArthur describes in this book belong to men who were not saved, and certainly not indwelt with the Spirit.

    Throughout the book MacArthur seems to imply that he would have done better than the disciples. It was my first introduction to MacArthur, and I was appalled that a man who supposedly is a teacher would take such artistic license.

    MacArthur makes an assumption about one of the apostles, then proceeds to write as though the assumption were fact, and creates an entire personality around a series of assumptions, most of them derogatory of the disciples.

    MacArthur wrote and entire chapter on Nathan's character, and who he was, all from one sentence in the Bible.

    It seems that McArthur is appealing to today's watered down world where the bar is set so high for following Christ that you need to be careful not to trip on it.

    Jesus Christ Himself is the CHIEF cornerstone of the book and the Apostles he describes fit into God's structural plan for His Kingdom. John MacArthur clarifies the role the Apostles played in cementing Christ's position as the Son of God and the Son of Man.

    I to am "aggramatoi idiotai" and appreciate Twelve Ordinary Men helping me more deeply appreciate the revelations of the Apostles lives in excellent literature!
