Slightly disappointing heroes

Book review. 12 Unlikely Heroes by John MacArthur.

I have to say upfront that I found this book to be hard work but that should not detract from the fact that it is a well written exploration of 12 heroes and heroines of the faith.

It is well written and well referenced and considers each of the heroes in some depth and I was quite sad it just didn’t hit the spot for me. I think I may have been expecting something slightly different that would have me on the edge of my seat. Unfortunately I didn’t get there but that may because I thought this book was something different to what it is.

I know a number of people who would find this book useful and while it did not do anything for me from a style perspective there was plenty to get your teeth into. I don’t think I would recommend it as a must read.
