Twelve Unlikely Heroes by John MacArthur.
I received a copy of this book as a reviewer for Booksneeze. You can too. Just read the book and give your honest feedback.
Twelve Unlikely Heroes was exactly what I thought it would be. Images from the Bible of God using ordinary, flawed, sinful people for very extraordinary, exceptional assignments for the Kingdom. One of my favorite characters in the Bible is the Apostle Paul. I always considered him the most fortunate to be chosen from his despicable self to change his life so drastically and life his life for Christ, to share the Gospel, to win souls and to be so ultimately sold out. Twelve Unlikely Heroes gives you a straightforward glimpse into the lives of others in the Bible and maybe even to reflect on your own life and worthiness as seen through the eyes of God.
As I read the book I was able to look at my life in ministry and shout a heartfelt AMEN! for being one of the chosen; an unlikely hero in my own right. Living the life of a new creation and understanding that it's not my past that interests God, it's the future that He has destined me to and how stepping into that purpose is what He's waiting for.
