Summary, etc.: Who were these men? They weren't saints. They weren't scholars. They weren't even religious sages. What is most amazing about the disciples is that Jesus ever selected them at all: among them a handful of common fishermen, a hated tax collector, and an impulsive political zealot. When you take a fresh look at the disciples, you'll be faced with a stunning fact: The men the Savior chose were ordinary. Hopelessly human. Remarkably unremarkable. But they were available and obedient to the Master's call. And, under Jesus' teaching and touch, they became a force that forever changed the world. This book ... brings you face to face with the disciples as you've never seen them before. You'll walk in their shoes. You'll understand their doubts and hopes. And you'll hear the power of Jesus' words in a whole new way. The message ... is clear. If Christ can accomplish His purposes through the lives of common men like these, imagine what He has in store for you!
