Item description for Twelve Ordinary Men: How the Master Shaped His Disciples for Greatness, and What He Wants to Do with You by john macarthur...

MacArthur draws principles from Christ's careful, hands-on training of the original twelve disciples for today's modern disciple.

Publishers Description
Contrary to popular belief, we do not have to be perfect to do God's work. Look no further than the twelve disciples whose many weaknesses are forever preserved throughout the pages of the New Testament. Jesus chose ordinary men - fisherman, tax collectors, political zealots - and turned their weakness into strength, producing greatness from utter uselessness. MacArthur draws principles from Christ's careful, hands-on training of the original twelve disciples for today's modern disciple - you.

Reviews - What do customers think about Twelve Ordinary Men?

Outstanding Study for Men  Mar 8, 2007
This is by far one of the best books to use in a study with men. The men were given a specific disciple to read about and report on. Every one of the men enjoyed their study that they completed the book before our next meeting. Highly recommend it.
Inspiring Intimacy  Feb 3, 2007
I love this book! In a wonderful way the author makes the chosen twelve real and human, giving great insight into their weaknesses, strengths and deep love for Jesus Christ.
Not so ordinary  Nov 10, 2006
Very well done. We used it as our textbook for a Wednesday night Bible study. We all, teacher and students alike, felt the book did an excellent job of teaching us about the disciples, why Jesus selected them and how God can use ordinary people for extraordinary purposes.
