I came to know the disciples more intimately. I felt like they represented all the differences we all have and it was neat to see who I felt I identified with. 12 Extraordinary Women was also a fantastic read , highly recommend both books.
Love the Biblical/historical centered in this book. Great theological exposition on the disciples, how God used there strengths and weaknesses and how He taught them and molded them into mighty men by the power of His word and Holy Spirit. Great and enjoyable read, i would recommend to anybody.
This is an extraordinary book. I listened to Dr. MacArthur's radio series with the same title and I believe this is those sermons in book form. Although this book focuses on the disciples, I think it would be safe to say that all of the major characters in the Bible were ordinary men. This was certainly true of this ragtag group. Of course, the object of the book is to reveal what God can do not only with the disciples but with all of us ordinary men and women, too. Dr. MacArthur has done another outstanding job.
