The twelve men who were called to be Apostles became Eye Witnesses of His Majesty; but who were these men? Were they any different from us? You may be amazed at how typical and ordinary they were. This book will answer questions you have had but never bothered to ask: * What changed Simon into Peter (a rock)? * How did a zealot ever get into the band of apostles? * What really happened with Judas? * I'm a Nobody Would there be a place for me in His plans? * Did you know there were three sets of brothers and one son among the Twelve? EYE WITNESSES OF HIS MAJESTY may be the single most illuminating book you have ever read on the Apostles of Jesus. Who they were Where they came from What they did What they became What they knew How they knew it plus How they died and where T. Deering Manning was ordained to the ministry in 1951.
