The Church's Essential Foundation: New Book Presents the Twelve Apostles in a Way You've Never Seen Before
Catholic Answers
April 12, 2022

SAN DIEGO, April 12, 2022 /Standard Newswire/ -- The apostles weren't mere spectators or pawns in Jesus' saving mission, says a new book by a beloved Catholic author—they were an essential part of that mission.

After two bestselling books whirling readers through the world of the early Church (Four Witnesses) and Christological controversy (The Apostasy that Wasn't), Rod Bennett takes up the story of the apostles with These Twelve: The Gospel Through the Apostles' Eyes. With his trademark narrative style that is as stirring to read as it is packed with scholarship, Bennett flips the Gospel lens to focus on that handful of fallible men whom Jesus hand-picked to be the foundation of his Church.

"For many Catholics, apostolicity is kind of the forgotten mark of the Church," says Todd Aglialoro, director of publishing for Catholic Answers. "And lots of Protestants see the apostles as mere instruments of Jesus' work or just even a byproduct of it. But Rod Bennett shows so beautifully how Jesus' ministry was organized for and around those twelve men—and designed to be handed off to them and their successors for the centuries to come."

Along the way, Bennett digs deep into the personalities, family histories, quirks, and foibles of the apostles, revealing them in their full flesh-and-bloodliness. He also re-examines traditional theories about their connections with each other (and the Lord) and their lives and ministries after Pentecost. The end result is a book that delights and edifies in equal measure, leaving the reader better informed and enriched in spirit.
