For all their importance, most of the apostles of Jesus have very little on record either of what they said or what they did. They seem to have dissolved into their mission, not for their own glory or to make a name for themselves but for the exaltation of Christ. John the Baptist set the standard for the apostles and all who came after them: "He must become greater; I must become less" (John 3:30). Few have exhibited this so well as the twelve apostles.
SERIES BLURB: For every person whose name blazes across the pages of our heritage of history in the large letters of a Tyndale, Bunyan, Wesley, Spurgeon or Lloyd-Jones, there are tens of thousands of little people who have courageously and faithfully maintained a stand for the truth and have extended the borders of the Kingdom of God. It is upon these that the Lord builds his church. Fascinating insights from Brian H Edwards in these volumes. Scripture index included in each.
