How can something ordinary becoming uncommonly wonderful? David Roper answers that question with more than 45 stories about men and women in the Bible who had an extraordinary encounter with God. Roper reminds you that 'God takes delight in nobodies, invests them with beauty and greatness, and uses them to touch the world with grace and truth.' You'll recognize some of the characters and you'll be introduced to others, but most important, you'll see how God uses everyday people--in both good and bad circumstances--for His extraordinary purposes. Building from Scripture, each story helps to enhance your view of God's hand in the lives of those who follow Him.
