about

A clear, concise, and respectful presentation of Mark's Gospel--and what Jesus' suffering means for us

Daniel J. Harrington, SJ, is well known for his superb New Testament scholarship, but he is also highly regarded for his exceptional ability to bridge the gap between modern biblical scholarship and authentic Christian spirituality. In "Meeting St. Mark Today," the final book in this series on the Gospels, Harrington
has provided another straightforward, practical resource for lay Catholics who want a better understanding of this
synoptic Gospel.
The book begins with background information on the Evangelist and his Gospel. It moves quickly into a concise but complete narrative analysis of the Gospel, which clearly demonstrates the human side of Jesus. Part Three of the book explains how Mark's Gospel provides answers to two essential questions: "What" did Jesus suffer?, and "Why" did Jesus suffer? It also proposes answers to the universal question, Why do "people" suffer? The book's final section includes five meditations on suffering, based on lectionary readings from Year B (St. Mark) in the Sunday lectionary cycle.
Each chapter concludes with questions for reflection and discussion, making "Meeting St. Mark Today" an ideal resource for individual Scripture study or group Bible study. The readings from Mark's Gospel for all Sundays and Feasts in Cycle B are listed at the end of the book.
Ultimately, "Meeting St. Mark Today" opens the theological treasure chest of this easily overlooked Gospel, enabling us to see how Jesus' suffering and the mystery of the cross can reshape our faith and our lives.
