For over one hundred years The Training of the Twelve has been highly regarded and widely received. A. B. Bruce's work continues to speak powerfully and effectively to the contemporary Christian generation.
The methods that Jesus used to prepare His disciples are an inspiring model for training and equipping leaders and lay people for service. Dr. Bruce emphasizes that church is not a place where people go but something that people are, and understanding and utilizing one's gifts and talents enrich both the body and the believer.
