Jesus Christ trained twelve ordinary men who were barely able to read and write, who had typical jobs like fishermen, who were very arrogant, and transformed them into his most extraordinary, most spiritual mature servants of all time. A. B. Bruce herein gives us how Jesus accomplished this so that we can apply the same insights into our lives and achieve the same success for ourselves and help others to do the same. If we are seeking greater spiritual depth and stability in our lives today, this book is for us, for it will mold and fashion us into a vessel that Jesus can use. Follow Bruce through the Gospels as he explores the twelve men Christ selected as his disciples, which will help us uncover how we can transform our human imperfections into serviceable instruments to help others.

A. B. Bruce’s early religious doubts, awakened especially by Strauss’ Life of Jesus, made him sympathetic throughout life to those who underwent similar stress. He authored several works and was appointed to the chair of Apologetics and New Testament exegesis at the Free Church College, Glasgow, which he held for twenty-four years. He concentrated much of his attention on the historical Jesus.
