If you’ve ever wondered about who constituted the inner circle of Jesus, don’t wonder any longer.

While the words and actions of the Twelve Apostles can be found scattered throughout the New Testament, putting together the pieces can be confusing, taxing, and just plain hard. Names are often repeated or changed. Previous jobs and possible destinations are mentioned, but even a map of the ancient world can be difficult to piece together. While some books of the Bible are written by the apostles, some are not, and others only give enticing hints as to who read them, where, and why. Commentaries abound, as do histories from men like Origen, Eusebius, and Jerome. So, where is one to begin?

In this slim book, all that work has finally been done for you. Told in an easy, interesting, and engaging style, you can finally peruse the stories that will broaden your knowledge and add to your religious conversations. Students of history and students of Christianity will find theories, traditions, and even long-forgotten stories from outside the Bible to ponder and ultimately come to one’s own decision. This book is not meant to convert the reader; it is meant to share facts.

At last, without spending countless hours and thousands of dollars on volume upon volume of textbooks, the reader has a jumping-off point for what will prove to be an exciting and thought-provoking journey.

Inside, you’ll find the answers to these questions:

  • Where did the apostles go after the Bible stories end?
  • Why did they seem to disagree with each other so often?
  • Which apostles had families or were related?
  • Why do some people count twelve, thirteen, or fourteen apostles?
  • How did such ordinary men come to have such a huge influence on the world today?
