The Gospel of Mark

If you’re interested in the Jesus story recounted in Mark’s gospel, this little narrative commentary on the topic is almost free at less than $1.00 in pb.

Reading the Gospel of Mark is a fascinating adventure, with the destiny of humanity hanging in the balance. Where’s it all going? To read and hear this story is to enter a possible world; a world of subversive reversals of perspective, intrigue, mystery, and strange riddles, with Jesus as its central protagonist. Since the world of self-serving power, fame, and control is decaying, only the embrace of a possible world and all it offers, according to Mark, will lead to life after death.
