This is an extraordinary book. I listened to Dr. MacArthur's radio series with the same title and I believe this is those sermons in book form. Although this book focuses on the disciples, I think it would be safe to say that all of the major characters in the Bible were ordinary men. This was certainly true of this ragtag group. Of course, the object of the book is to reveal what God can do not only with the disciples but with all of us ordinary men and women, too. Dr. MacArthur has done another outstanding job.
