An accessible new look at the oldest Gospel from a pre-eminent Anglican scholar. Borg explores the historical background of the oldest Gospel and offers the reader an accessible means of understanding and evaluating this book, using the approach that made his "Reading Jesus Again for the First Time" so popular. As one of the best-known contemporary scholars of the historical Jesus, he applies everything now known about the era of Jesus' life to our understanding of Mark's Gospel, making it all the more relevant and inspirational to audiences today. This is one of the first books in a series, co-sponsored by the Anglican Association of Biblical Scholars. It is written in accessible language, sensitive to the needs of people who have little or no experience in reading the Bible. Each book focuses on exploring the historical and critical background, as well as how the biblical texts written centuries ago can still speak to readers today.
