Book Description

21 Oct 2005
This book aims to help us reflect on God, Jesus and Christian discipleship during Lent, Holy Week and Easter. In what way is Jesus good news to each of us, personally? What gives real meaning to the well-worn words 'good news'? Straight-talking short reflections and prayers based on Mark's "Gospel" lead you though 48 days of Lent to Easter on a journey of real discovery. The author's pugnacious, pithy and vulnerably honest view of the key themes in Mark's "Gospel" will reveal the familiar through refreshed eyes. Nick Baines aims to release us from shallow readings of scripture and looks at why Jesus mixes 'good news' with something that sounds as miserable as 'repentance'. He opens up new and liberating perspectives on the love of God. This book also includes: 48 daily reflections from Ash Wednesday to Easter Day; 48 daily prayers; and 7 weekly sections on personal reflection and group discussion.

Marking Time: 47 Reflections on Mark S Gospel for Lent, Holy Week and Easter

This book is one of my favorite Lenten preparation books.

It is easy to use as preparation throughout Lent as the Gospel of Mark is broken into 47 easy to follow sections with meditations for each.

It can be used for private reflection or just as useful in group sessions and although its aim is to be used in Lent it brings the power of Mark's Gospel to life so can be used anytime!

Nick Baines has done a first class job with book.
