About the Author
A. B. Bruce (1831-1899) is recognized as one of the most distinguished biblical scholars of his time. He served as a minister from 1859-1875 and was a popular lecturer on both sides of the Atlantic. He was appointed as professor of theology, apologetics, and New Testament exegesis in the Free Church College in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1876.

- Calling the disciples.
- Disciplines such as fasting, prayer, and Sabbath observance.
- Topics such as: church discipline, forgiveness, humility, sermons, the cross, etc.
- Insights into the disciples and how Jesus dealt with them.
- Jesus' final charges to the disciples.
When reading the book, some particularly insightful points addressed by Bruce include:
1. Jesus utterly disregarded worldly wisdom
2. 3 ways Jesus answered accusations from the Pharisees.
3. Jesus showed true wisdom when he selected ordinary men to be His closest disciples.
4. Ordinary men are usually free from the trappings of society that ensnare so many of the "elite".
5. The great ones in God's kingdom are self-forgetful, have child-like trust, are humble, and leave to the Lord the consequences of their service.
I will often use this as a future reference and will read more slowly and deeply next time for even more great insights. Great resource for thoughts on how Jesus trained others. I was given a review copy by Kregel Publications in exchange for a fair review.
