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 thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It gives a deeper understanding of the apostles and their day to day lives, and their coming to terms with the new Messiah in their lives.

    Brings you closer to those 12 Apostles

    A lot of conjecture but also a lot of fact done in Rob's style to bring a person closer to the personalities and experiences of the 12 Apostles
