Here is a simple yet searching guide to the Gospel that does justice to the excitement of Mark's message. Open Door on Mark is a clear and accessible introduction to Mark's Gospel, nudging the door open for those with questions to ask. It conveys the key messages of Jesus' ministry and their relevance today. It breaks the gospel down into manageable sections. Each chapter begins with the text, a short discussion, and questions for reflection or study. A foreword by Sister Wendy Beckett is also included.
Racy, breathless, direct: Mark's Gospel is written with an urgency that sweeps the reader along. What Jesus looked like, how he was born – there's no time to linger over details like these. Jesus proclaims who he is by breaking down barriers, braving opposition and achieving glory through death. Open Door on Mark is written for anyone intrigued by Jesus and what he might stand for – unlocking the Gospel for all to explore what Mark has to say.
