Twelve Ordinary Men

By John MacArthur

John MacArthur’s Twelve Ordinary Men explores the lives of the 12 disciples in fascinating detail. MacArthur combines Scripture with historical data to create a detailed biography of each disciple, but goes beyond information and discusses practical application for your life. For instance, while discussing Peter, MacArthur gives principles to being a strong leader in your Christian community. Overall, your small group will learn how God can do great things with normal people.

    My small group went through MacArthur’s study this past spring. It’s FANTASTIC!! We were constantly challenged & learned more about what it means to truly be a disciple of Christ. If you want to build on your foundation of the New Testament & gain more insight into the different ways Jesus uses ordinary men for His extraordinary work, this is the study for you.

    The one negative feedback I got: the later chapters dealing with the lesser-known disciples, like James the Less & Judas (not Iscariot), seem kind of forced/stretched out material-wise. Also, since you’re using the Bible, paperwork & workbook, a few of the girls felt like it was challenging to process through 3 sources, instead of just the Bible & one another source.
