These Twelve: The Gospel Through the Apostles' Eyes (Digital)
The Men Were the Mission
One, holy, Catholic… and apostolic Church? Catholics often overlook that last part. And Protestants tend to downplay its importance, treating the apostles as accidental byproducts of Jesus’ ministry rather than key pieces of it.
But in These Twelve, author Rod Bennett (Four Witnesses, The Apostasy That Wasn’t) shows that the apostles weren’t random, interchangeable parts—mere pawns that Jesus moved around in order to accomplish his mission. No, these men were the mission.
In this riveting re-examination of familiar Gospel events from the ground-floor perspective of Christ’s hand-picked heirs, you will learn the true meaning of apostolicity—and why it’s an essential mark of the one Church that Jesus founded to go out to the world and make all people his Chosen People.
Along the way, you’ll delight in Bennett’s trademark storytelling style as he movingly depicts what it was like to witness Jesus’ teaching and miracles from the apostles’ point of view. The Lord’s most intimate disciples take on flesh and blood, with their strengths, weaknesses, backgrounds, and motivations explored with the help of Scripture, history, and the insights of faithful scholars.

I like the way Rob writes this book because it's an easy read and he put some information that I've never heard before especially in the episode of the Lord's Transfiguration. I also loved this book because of its reread value you can get many more from this book and I love it. Lastly one of the highlights of this book is you can see the Lord through the apostle's eyes and you felt that you are with them whenever you read this book.
