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.
Buying this book again.
I bought and read this book in paperback and really enjoyed and learned from it. The problem I have is that I have since moved and all my books are in storage. I found this book to be informative, insightful and an enjoyable read . I had always told the people I spoke with about Christ that He didn't choose the most educated ,wealthy or influential men of His time. This book reiterates my points and by a much more learned person than myself.
Good background info newbie bible readers
