    I read this book via an Amazon KINDLE Unlimited download. Anyone who is a Christian desire to find some sort of relationship with the Lord, which is an extremely noble undertaking. However, in doing so you essentially wind up getting a single point of view, and a single individual to emulate after. Mind you there’s absolutely nothing wrong with doing so, especially when the single individual is the Lord himself. It is often said that a teacher is sometimes taught by his students, so why not attemp I read this book via an Amazon KINDLE Unlimited download. Anyone who is a Christian desire to find some sort of relationship with the Lord, which is an extremely noble undertaking. However, in doing so you essentially wind up getting a single point of view, and a single individual to emulate after. Mind you there’s absolutely nothing wrong with doing so, especially when the single individual is the Lord himself. It is often said that a teacher is sometimes taught by his students, so why not attempt to learn something from the Lord’s students; His disciples, or otherwise known as His Apostles. Through the pages of this book by Deacon Wally Calabrese readers are invited to get to know these individuals, plus three others, and of course, His Mother, Mary the Theotokos, Queen of the Apostles. Deacon Calabrese wants his readers to learn about these ordinary, yet exceptional individuals with matching qualities who through their lives and actions teach them something about their Christian way of living their lives, along with a better understanding of the Bible itself. The book delves into the history of the apostles showing that they were 12 ordinary men with some extraordinary characteristics and what they teach us through the Bible about how we need to live the Christian life; for they are the Lord’s disciples. Therefore, let us not forget ISAIAH 8:16 [ESV] “Bind up the testimony; seal the teaching among my disciples.” or ISAIAH 50:4 [ESV] “The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of those who are taught, that I may know how to sustain with a word him who is weary. Morning by morning he awakens; he awakens my ear to hear as those who are taught.” Just as we’ve come to know the Lord, we also need to increase our relationships with the Lord’s disciples and Mother Mary and be able to come to know them better because of the importance of their connection to us becoming more devoted to our faith, on a more personal and special manner. Deacon Calabrese uses his own personal experiences in his becoming closer and more real to these marvelous individuals as an example for us to follow. For wanting his readers to grow in their faith to the Lord by getting to know His disciples, this voracious reader/reader of Christian books has given the author and his endeavor here the 5 STARS he’s earned.

    *First off I will say that the author is, in fact, my father. I will also add that this review is unbiased!* I will be honest...it took me a good 3 months to get through this book. I have been in a horrible reading slump. I would constantly pick this book up, read a few pages, put it back down and just "forget" about it for a few weeks.

I will also add that this review is unbiased!* I will be honest...it took me a good 3 months to get through this book. I have been in a horrible reading slump. I would constantly pick this book up, read a few pages, put it back down and just "forget" about it for a few weeks. With that said, this book is very well written. My dad incorporates experiences from his personal life and uses it to illustrate how he relates to each of the Apostles. By doing this, he also forms a connection with the reader. My dad is just a regular person...just like the Apostles were just regular men, yet they were chosen by Christ and became perfect examples as to how we're to live as Catholic Christians. His ability to relate to each of the Apostles enables us, the readers, to also relate to the Apostles. He also addresses some misconceptions that some (including Catholics) have towards the Catholic faith. I most thoroughly enjoyed how he subtly adds his sense of humor in his writing as well. There is no "bible thumping" or "lecturing" being done in this book. Rather, you get the sense of having a casual conversation with someone about how we can be like the Apostles in today's society. This was truly a wonderful read and would highly recommend this everyone, both Catholic and non-Catholic!
