40 Lives in 40 Days: Experiencing God's Grace Through the Bible's Most Compelling Characters (Hardcover)
Have you ever wondered why God uses ordinary people to accomplish His work and to spread the good news? Join bestselling author and Bible teacher John MacArthur as he takes a closer look at the everyday lives of the men and women that God trusted to carry His message and lead His people.
40 Lives in 40 Days is a brand-new devotional compilation of MacArthur's extensive studies of the Bible characters who show us that we don't have to be perfect to do God's work. From the twelve disciples to the Samaritan woman, MacArthur shares that Jesus chose average people--fishermen, tax collectors, doubters, political zealots--and gave them a remarkable mission.
These encouraging stories, based in Scripture, help shed light on these real men and women who endured struggle, pain, and heartache, just like us. They were perfectly ordinary sinners--living proof of God's kindness--who went on to serve an extraordinary purpose in spreading the gospel.
By tracing the lives of these unlikely heroes, MacArthur shows us that the difficulties and temptations that they lived through are the same trials that modern believers face today.
Throughout 40 Lives in 40 Days, MacArthur will:
- Dive deep into the stories of Jesus' earliest disciples
- Teach us that God continues to mold and use ordinary people today
- Share the surprising ways God accomplishes His purposes
- Provide an honest look at all of God's people
- Help you experience God's goodness and grace
As you get to know each of these 40 figures even better, you'll see why the lives they led can still serve as an inspiration to believers today.
