'It's interesting to note that the original Greek word used here has a very strong sense of waterfowl flying backwards. So, what the writer is saying is that they went down like reversing ducks, and so, of course should we .'- from Adrian Plass's popular spoof of an Anglican sermonReaders who seek a weighty theological treatise on the life of Christ will not find it in these pages. With a deft touch and down-to-earth humour, Adrian Plass offers a heartfelt response to the life and ministry of Jesus as presented in the Gospel of Mark.'I have had a passion for Jesus for many years,' says Plass. 'In Jesus we meet a dynamic, hardworking, passionate member of the human race, a man, but a man who was also God. Stronger than all the powers of nature, he was nevertheless willing to become a servant so that people like you and I can be rescued from the worst of disasters.'Plass brings his own unique perspective to this meditation on Mark, which has been broken into ninety sections that can be read in any order or continuously. An adventurous, challenging, witty and often poignant look at the events in the life of Jesus, Never Mind the Reversing Ducks addresses the deep issues we all face.
