Feasting on the Gospels is an all-new, seven-volume preaching series that focuses on the most prominent and preached-on New Testament books, the four Gospels. Featuring never- before-published essays from a diverse and respected group of scholars and pastors, Feasting on the Gospels covers every single passage in the Gospels, making it a valuable resource for developing sermons. In the Gospel of Mark, preachers will find four essays on the exegetical, theological, pastoral, and homiletical challenges of the text, with the freedom to begin where they choose. Feasting on the Gospels offers a unique resource for all who preach, either continuously or occasionally, on the Gospels.
Continuing in the great tradition of Feasting on the Word, the Feasting on the Gospels series is a welcome resource for preachers. Four scholars, each writing from a different perspective, address every passage in the Gospels, offering stimulation to the preacher's imagination and lighting up the possibilities for engaging biblical sermons.

Most people may know that Feasting on the Gospels is a profound resource for preachers, pastors, and teachers, but it is also a treasure book for laity, meditators, and spiritual seekers. Its four clearly written essays on each Gospel passage aid reflection, appeal to experience, stir up questions, and leave one wanting more.
