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.
