The author makes the 12 disciples come to life as he explores what scripture has to tell us about each man. He also guides as into seeing how Jesus took these 12 imperfect men and transformed them into 12 men who not only changed the world in which they lived, but who continue to change people's lives and hearts over 2000 years later. It is inspirational to identify with the weakness of these 12 men and through their transformations see what God can do with, and through, our own weaknesses. Thanks to author John MacArthur for making these 12 ordinary men come to life right before my eyes! I highly recommend this book to both new and mature Christians.
