    One thought on “The Training of the Twelve: Timeless Principles for Leadership”

    1. Really good book that creates fresh insights into the gospel accounts. Well worth the read. Can be a little tedious at times. But push through and you'll be rewarded.

    2. This book is a classic study of Jesus' teaching and training of his disciples (first published in 1871). When I first read it, I was fascinated by the light it shed on my reading of the Gospels. It is a very valuable study for any Christian who serves in any form of leadership capacity or anyone seeking to be a disciple of Jesus Christ.The book's 31 chapters give an absorbing commentary on selected passages of the four Gospels, following in chronological order Jesus ministry and teaching among h [...]

    3. One of the best books I've read. It helps tie together multiple events in the gospel accounts of how Jesus was training the disciples. A teaching often led to an example that led to an action, or in another order. Very insightful! Again, it reminds us that Jesus is the Master and Rabbi.

    4. A Classic on what it means to be a follower of Christ and a leader. It doesn't go into politics but just lays out the principles that Christian leaders are supposed to follow. I recommend this book for all Christian Leaders wanting to get back to the basics.

    5. I read book on my train ride to NYC each morning and on my return trip back home. I don't remember the train rides much at all. All I can say is that I met all 12 men this way. When I got to the last page of the book, I didn't want to put it down so I closed my book with one page left so that the next day I could feel the experience one more time. I told all my Christian friends about the book, but the only one who took my advice was my husband actually, and he thanked me for suggesting that he [...]

    6. It only took me 4 years to finish this book? Not surprised, it was very long, and not an easy read but Bruce's exposition of the life of Christ is really good. Not sure I agree with all his observations and applications but this is a worthwhile read. Too many long quotes to put in this review, but if you plan to read it don't plan to skim. It may take a while just to finish a chapter; I had to read some sentences three or four times to understand what he had written.

    7. This was a good book, I got a lot out of this. It was a good book meeting with Pastor Tom Freitas and John Ower. To discuss and point out specific points it was very interesting and awesome how Jesus trained His twelve disciples, and how we like to think they were perfect even at the end. But knowing truthfully they are far from it.

    8. This classic was first published in 1871 and revised in 1899. It is a study of the training of the 12 disciples by Jesus. It is a must-read for the Bible student who wants a detailed study of Jesus’ discipleship strategy.

    9. Long read, good read. Don't know if I would have finished it had it not been for Mike Newton and Tom Freitas. We went through it as a group. I appreciated the conversation that this book stimulated.

    10. Bruce walks through what it means to be both a disciple and a discipler by looking at Jesus and the disciples. Good break down of the Gospels.

    11. I am reading this with my small group and I highly recommend it! it is full of challenging and thought provoking information.

    12. A wonderful and insightful classic. I particularly appreciated the way Bruce showed the spiritual growth of the disciples especially Peter and John.
