These is a truely fabulous book! I was always interested in the twelve disciples, and wanted to know more about them. I would watch documentaries and such about the 12 on the history channel, discovery channel, ect. They were all cool and informative, but they didnt give me the information I wanted- so i went to the internet, and found this book. Immediently, i was drawn to this book and ordered it. Well, Ive had it for 3 days and im already finished. This book knocked my socks off! It takes each disciple and tells about thier personality, how they viewed Jesus, how they are presented in the bible, what they did after the resurrection and how each of us can relate them. This book really brought the disciples to life and made me want to meet them now. I cant wait to go to heaven and meet Peter & John. Also, the books take the time to let us know more about the disciples who alot of people arnt really familiar with (like Simon the Zealot, James the less, and bartholomew (nathaniel)) In the reading, you can almost always see alittle bit of you in each of them. I can most identify myself with Thaddeus, or John. Please get this book- You will NOT regret it!!
