The Search for the Twelve Apostlesby William Steuart Mcbirnie
Synopses & Reviews
Simon Peter, Andrew, James the son of Zebedee, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Thomas, Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, Jude, Simon, Judas, and Matthias--what happened to the men who answered Jesus' call to follow him? What impact did they have on the world? Where did they go and what did they do after Jesus' resurrection and ascension? In these fascinating profiles, Dr. McBirnie offers readers a snapshot of the lives of each apostle. His information was compiled by traveling to places where the apostles lived and visited, by studying the Scriptures and biblical history, by listening to local traditions, and by engaging in his own original research. Picking up where the book of Acts leaves off, McBirnie brings these men to life as he explores the legends, traditions, and real lives of the Twelve as they built the foundation of Christianity.
McBirnie begins where the Acts of the Apostles leaves off. He brings the astonishing personalities in Acts to vivid life as the human beings they were, with their dedication, humanity, zeal, and triumphant faith.
An authoritative book tracing the activities of Jesus' disciples after his resurrection and ascension.
