This book will give the reader a better understanding and appreciation for the twelve apostles. It is biblically based and includes many scriptural references. We learn from this study that God uses ordinary, average men to accomplish great things for Him. These disciples had their faults and failures, their strengths and weaknesses, their victories and defeats just like we do.
