Publisher's Summary

Contrary to popular belief, we do not have to be perfect to do God's work. Look no further than the 12 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 12 disciples for today's modern disciple - you.

Difficult Listen: More dissertation than story.

The content of this audio book was wonderful. A well-researched, accurate depiction of Biblical content. However, it wasn't the most enjoyable listen. It had the feel of a dissertation that sometimes morphed into a sermon. I absolutely love John MacArthur, so this review in no way reflects his knowledge of the bible. But, if you want to listen to a "story" about the disciples, I don't feel this hits the mark. My primary difficulty resulted from the narrator's need to cite references throughout the audio. So start with content then stop for a bibliographic reference. It really disrupted the story flow for me.

Insightful and thought provoking.

What made the experience of listening to Twelve Ordinary Men the most enjoyable?

This book helps you to understand each of the disciples background. It gave great insight into the characteristics and how Jesus dealt with each of them. Great book for leaders who have to deal with people of differing personalities. A must read for Pastors.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Chapter two was the most impactful for me because he talked about Peter and that is who I am compared to by people. It helped me to understand more how people see me.

Any additional comments?

Every Pastor should have a copy of this in their library.
