The Gospel Of Mark

Product code: 278045


Twelve passages take you on a journey through The Gospel of Mark, and help you to appreciate it more fully and pray it more deeply. Each session of 'Take and Read' begins with Hear the word of God, and provides the chosen text from the New Revised Standard Version. Understand the word of God gives an explanation of the text, with quotations from the Fathers and from Church documents in the margins. All this is richly illustrated with Christian art and inspiring photographs. Finally, Live the word of God offers suggestions for reflection and prayer, so that the Scriptures may have a genuine impact on our daily lives.

The Gospel of Mark presents Jesus to us in a fresh and exciting way. In it Jesus throws down the challenge of discipleship. That same call to generosity of spirit and fidelity amid trials, the challenge to live by the gospel, is always before us.
