Product Description

Review

'A stimulus for discussion, and a prayer. The result is something inspiring and provocative that has depth even in its conciseness. I recommend the book warmly, confident that the reader will come away a fellow traveller with Mark.' --Paul Scott in thegoodbookstall

'Mark Pryce encourages imagining the text , a sort of theology distilled in poetry and prose very effective . . . Maybe you already have Tom Wright s very useful Mark for Everyone. This is a good companion to it. This encouragement to journey with Mark . . . brings us alongside the three groups with whom Jesus engaged the authorities, the crowd and the disciples.' --Raymond Fox in the Church Gazette

At last, a book to put in the hands of laypeople who want to prepare for the upcoming Sunday’s readings, if not every week then at the start of each season of the Church’s year.

Each chapter has four parts: a section ‘exploring the text’, which gives some information on Luke’s narrative and connects it with the season; ‘imagining the text’ which is a poem or piece of imaginative writing from the perspective of a character in the gospel, or a modern-day re-working of the story (how about ‘out-of-character’ story of ‘shepherds’ in their Portakabin office! Or see Satan’s monologue after the bruising encounter with Jesus in the wilderness?); ‘reflecting on the text’, which makes more connections with our life today; and finally some suggestions for ‘action, conversation, questions, prayer’ prompt personal connections between faith and experience.

Gooder seems surprised that the Pharisees warned Jesus that King Herod was seeking to kill him. She shouldn’t because Jesus was either a Pharisee or very sympathetic to their movement.

Pryce is wrong to suggest that the reason why priest and levite hurried past the wounded man was because they had to abide by purity laws on their way to the temple. The parable of the Good Samaritan states that they were journeying from, not to, Jerusalem.

One of the best bits is the prodigal son’s story told from his mother’s point of view.

Great book for preparing sermons etc. Also useful for personal study. A book which seems very thorough yet not in an overwhelming academic way. Provided fresh insights into familiar stories.

I had hoped for something with more meat which would both help me with sermon writing and be a good help for lay people. I felt that it did not fit the bill.
