Twelve Unlikely Heroes book review



Twelve Unlikely heroes is a book written by John MacArthur. It's a hardback book and published by Thomas Nelson. Here is the description of this book:

Book Description


What kind of people does God use to accomplish His work?

Far from the children’s tales depicted in picture books and nursery rhymes, the men and women highlighted in the Bible were unnervingly real. They faltered. They struggled. And at times, they fell short. Yet God worked through them in surprising and incredible ways to accomplish His purposes. Scripture does not hide their weaknesses, caricature their strengths, or spin their stories as a display of human nobility. Instead, it describes these heroes of the faith with unflinching honesty and delivers an unexpected ending: “God is not ashamed to be called their God” (Hebrews 11:16).

In Twelve Unlikely Heroes, pastor and best-selling author John MacArthur uses his deep knowledge of the Bible and history to take us back to see these three-dimensional men and women in their own times and cultures. In doing so, it becomes clear how their dramatic stories apply to us today. People who might at first seem foreign quickly become familiar and unforgettable—particularly as they reveal the true Hero behind every witness, the power counterbalancing every weakness, “the Author and Finisher of our faith” (Hebrews 12:1).

In the book, the author discusses God and and scripture in such a way that the reader doesn't get bored. The book flows nicely, and keeps the readers attention. Although I do not push my Religious beliefs on anyway, if you enjoy books of this type, I recommend you check it out.
The author is very talented in my opinion. He explores all sides of the subject that he is writing about and makes it enjoyable for the reader.
It's an average length book and each chapter is just as interesting as the next.

I did not receive any financial compensation for this review. I did, however, receive free product for the purpose of this review. All opinions are my own.
