Twelve Unlikely Heroes

In this latest book, MacArthur again delivers.
In today’s world, we are starting to dilute the meaning of the word hero.  "The word Hero is slowly losing its significance because it has been so broadly redefined in popular culture. ... Nowadays, celebrity status alone is enough to get a person deemed heroic. You'll often hear people refer to their favorite person as "my hero," indicating that all that may be necessary to be a hero is to have one person who thinks you are."

"The pages of Scripture are filled with stories of great heroes - men and women whom God used in unique and powerful ways to accomplish His purposes. Their exploits vary greatly, yet the common thread that runs through all of their testimonies is faith."

Onesimus, Jonathan, and Esther are just three of the remarkable lives that the author explores in his latest work, with the overriding theme of God can use anyone with availability well beyond their internal ability.  In delivering the stories of these three, along with the nine others, the author continues to place the focus for their successes firmly on the source of their strength – almighty God.

Twelve Unlikely Heroes, by John MacArthur and published by Thomas Nelson publishers can be found at Amazon and other Christian booksellers online and in stores now.
