Eye opening, personalizing book.

I thoroughly enjoyed this. There's a passage in the book about how the disciples may feel like they weren't just like you and I. This book is amazing and makes the 12 extraordinary men ordinary to me. It doesn't make you feel like you are unworthy or you don't deserve Jesus' sacrifice for us. I can't say enough about this book


I paid $9 for a very good copy of this book and it arrived with writing and highlighting in it, and the entire book has been bent in half. I should have just ordered a new copy.

Very enjoyable book

Interesting information given on the Apostles. Can provide insight into our own lives if we are open minded as we read this book. Offers encouragement to those who may feel inadequate to work for God. Disappointed that previous reader/owner wrote and underlined the book. I didn't notice that description when I purchased. All things considered, I enjoyed the book. Thank you.

BRILLIANT! Which disciple are YOU?

These is a truely fabulous book! I was always interested in the twelve disciples, and wanted to know more about them. I would watch documentaries and such about the 12 on the history channel, discovery channel, ect. They were all cool and informative, but they didnt give me the information I wanted- so i went to the internet, and found this book. Immediently, i was drawn to this book and ordered it. Well, Ive had it for 3 days and im already finished. This book knocked my socks off! It takes each disciple and tells about thier personality, how they viewed Jesus, how they are presented in the bible, what they did after the resurrection and how each of us can relate them. This book really brought the disciples to life and made me want to meet them now. I cant wait to go to heaven and meet Peter & John. Also, the books take the time to let us know more about the disciples who alot of people arnt really familiar with (like Simon the Zealot, James the less, and bartholomew (nathaniel)) In the reading, you can almost always see alittle bit of you in each of them. I can most identify myself with Thaddeus, or John. Please get this book- You will NOT regret it!!

Allow me to introduce you

What an awesome book!! I couldn't put it down and was introduced to some ordinary people I realized I never really knew. I do read the Bible and was delighted to meet some new precious friends, who in some cases remind me of people on this earth I know. I found myself saying to people "I can hardly wait to get to Heaven and meet Andrew. This book is such a favorite I have given it to friends and family as gifts. It does start a wonderful conversation. People who read it will smile and delight in the knowledge that our Lord chose these people..people just like us with all our faults. This book really touches hearts and it is so educational. Enjoy!

Well Worth One's Time to Read This

This was an inspiring look at each of the twelve apostles. John MacArthur, as always, does a fascinating Scriptural treatment of a - regretful to say this - often neglected but crucial biblical subject matter. After reading this book, one walks away feeling he personally knows each one of those twelve men. It is a truly uplifting experience to read this book. Buy it, and explore its rich depths. You won't regret it!
