A book/s on the lives of the apostles?


(Josué Aparicio) #1

I was wondering if there are any good reads on the lives of the apostles. I was listening to Ravi recently and he mentioned how Thomas ended up in India and I was curious to know if any of the other apostles have any records of their lives outside of the bible. It would be interesting to read. The only thing I’ve found is a book called Apostles by Tom Bissell but I think there’s a bias since he states he isn’t a believer but loves the story of Christianity.

@josueaparicio Bryan Litfin was a professor at Moody Bible while I was there and I expect his book would be good to read. I have not read it myself, though I may have too now - it looks interesting. Hope that is helpful. The Lord bless you as you grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus!

Hi @josueaparicio,

I believe the most up-to-date resource on the lives of the apostles is by Dr. Sean McDowell:

He’s shared excerpts and insights from his doctoral research and book on his blog: http://seanmcdowell.org/category/apostles

And you can see extended talks on the subject by Sean as well:
