A popular reading of Mark's Gospel which addresses the darkness in this gospel and shows how the theology in Mark is a call to us for obedience and faith.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
In the style of his earlier volumes on Luke and Acts, Kilgallen brings a scholarly background, historical and literary sensitivity, and sound spiritual insights to bear on a close reading of Mark's text. One question, he suggests, lies at the heart of this gospel: namely, why did Jesus submit to such a shameful death, keeping his "Messianic secret" private until after the resurrection? Kilgallen's discussion of how this paradox governed Mark's selection and arrangement of detail makes for challenging reading. For professionals and motivated laypersons; the text of the Scripture is included at the end.
