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!
I enjoyed this book so much because it was written with such insight into each disciple's life. It made their relationship with Jesus so vivid. It touched me to read about each one. It even made it clearer about Judas. It is a moving account of their lives. John MacArthur is a wonderful teacher.
An excellent book. I had never thought of the disciples in the way John MacArthur presented them. The book gave me a hole different perspective on the men who built the church and gave their lives for its continued success in saving lives for Christ.
