Twelve Unlikely Heroes: How God Commissioned Unexpected People In The Bible And What He Wants To Do With You, written by John MacArthur, is a book that introduces the possibilities that God sees within each Christian as demonstrated through those who have walked within the pages of the Bible.
MacArthur uses his deep knowledge of Biblical and historical facts to carry those engaged in reading this book back in time, thus allowing a clearer, more dramatic understanding of their participation in the expansion of God’s kingdom and applications for us today.
MacArthur gives the reader a deeper look at twelve biblical characters who would seem to be, on the surface, ordinary people who did nothing overly extraordinary. This deeper examination shows how important Enoch, Joseph, Miriam, Gideon, Samson, Jonathan, Esther, John the Baptist, James, Mark, and Onesimus were to the work of God throughout the history of the early church.
Each story shows the diligent work of God as He moved through the lives of these Twelve Unlikely Heroes to ultimately see His plans come to fruition. Thus this book is highly recommended, as it is sure to increase the presence of God within our lives and within this world.
