Fleer and Bland have brought together an impressive list of homileticians and preachers to answer the question "How can we draw our congregations into the world that Mark has imagined for us in his gospel?" At the heart of this book is the homiletic work of Fred Craddock, addressing issues of whether the sermon says and does what the biblical text says and does and what qualities can enrich the sermon's form. Using concrete images and examples, Preaching Mark's Unsettling Messiah combines the best of Markan scholarship (Morna Hooker) with the best of homiletic theory (Fred Craddock and Richard Ward) with the skill of preachers who connect the biblical text of Mark to the specific task of preaching.

Editorial Reviews

"Fleer and Bland have collected a diverse band of commentators who bring performance studies; homiletics; and narrative, social, and literary criticism to bear on preaching the gospel of Mark. Most importantly, these scholars refuse to treat the this gospel as a subject to be dissected and analyzed with neutrality. Rather, the relationship is collegial, with the evangelist serving as mentor and guide in the work of proclaiming the gospel. The final section of the book contains a series of sermons that are of the highest quality and nicely embody the insights of the volume's essays."
