Throughout Scripture the Lord often uses unlikely men and women to accomplish great things in His name—including many who didn’t initially seem up to the task.
Not everyone is as talented as psalmist and king, David, or as dynamic as the apostle Paul. But our weaknesses aren’t hindrances to God’s purpose or plan—they’re opportunities for us to depend on Him, and for Him to display His power in and through us.
In Twelve Unlikely Heroes, John MacArthur examines men and women who, in spite of their shortcomings and inadequacies, played pivotal roles in God’s kingdom work. All of them were unimpressive, forgettable, or ill equipped in their own ways, but the Lord accomplished mighty things in them and through them just the same. Filled with fascinating insight that add color and life to familiar biblical stories and characters, Twelve Unlikely Heroes will encourage you in your desire and commitment to be a useful vessel in God’s hands.
