9780819223395: Conversations with Scripture - The Gospel of Mark (Anglican Association of Biblical Scholars Study)

Most Christians are familiar with the story told in Mark's gospel -- from the fishermen leaving their nets, to the miracle of the loaves and fishes, to the political rumblings and the crucifixion. But no one knows who "Mark" really was or why this gospel was written or why it's charged with such a sense of immediacy. For noted Jesus scholar Marcus Borg, reading Mark is like "meeting Jesus again for the first time." Individual readers and parish study groups will learn about this earliest gospel from the perspective of an important Anglican theologian.

Conversations with Scripture is the umbrella title of the Anglican Association of Biblical Scholars Study Series. Written in accessible language and sensitive to those who have little or no experience in reading the Bible, each book in the series focuses on exploring the historical and critical background, plus modern application of the texts. Other books in the series focus on the Gospel of John, Revelation, the Law, the Parables, and 2 Isaiah.

From the Introduction: "In thousands of congregations...this emerging way has been a means of revitalizing and deepening Christian understanding and commitment. It is a way that integrates faith and reason, head and heart, intellect, experience, and yearning. For me, it has made all the difference. This book is a small contribution to this process of adult theological re-education."

Review:

"Borg reminds us that the gift of Mark's Gospel comes from the revelation of its meaning rather than from the literal translation of its text. Conversations with Scripture: The Gospel of Mark is a must-read for those who long to understand more fully the Kingdom of God and the person of Jesus as Son of God." --John Bryson Chane, Bishop, Episcopal Diocese of Washington, D.C.

"Marcus Borg guides readers through Mark's Gospel with wisdom and insight. Borg's perceptive literary, historical, and theological observations accompany readers on their path through the Gospel. Laypersons and religious professionals alike will appreciate this accessible, engaging journey through Mark." --Greg Carey, Professor of New Testament, Lancaster Theological Seminary

"The biggest mysteries of the Bible are the ones of the men behind the pens. Conversations with Scripture: The Gospel of Mark investigates the gospel of Mark, one of the most crucial books of the Bible and how it came to be. With much historical sources, Conversations with Scripture: The Gospel of Mark seeks to understand Mark, and through that, gain a greater understanding of the Bible." --The Midwest Book Review

Review:

"With the cogent clarity of a crackerjack investigative reporter, Marcus Borg gives us the scoop on Mark, and `The Way' of Jesus becomes--again, for the first time--a compelling journey of transformation for all seekers who dare follow."

"Many know Marcus Borg as a brilliant scholar, which he is. But he has a pastoral side as well. I've stood with Marcus after his lectures and watched as person after person comes up to say, "I lost my faith, but your books have helped me get it back," or "I wouldn't be in the church today if I hadn't come across your books," or "Your work has helped me stay a Christian." In this highly readable book on Mark, you'll experience that pastoral side as he brings his scholarship to the aid of Christians and seekers alike. If you want to get to the heart of Jesus' message and the way of life into which that message invites us, you'll find help here."
