If you have received Cave's lecture on the nature of the love song, you will already appreciate how Christianity has informed the songwriter's work. As must be the intention, this bite-size, easy-to-digest chunk of Bible, might open minds to the teachings of Christ via a format appropriate to many who appreciate the artist but not necessarily the subject. I intend to read other books in this series.

If it's good enough for Nick Cave to put his name to, then it must be worth reading. Literature that endures so long has value and worth as literature at the very least. I imagine most people's personal prejudices about what they think they know about Christianity will put them off reading it though.

An excellent translation in modern English with a cutting edge introduction. Both thought provoking and amazing in terms of content, the Gospel of Mark was an unexpected source of wonder for any reader in search of the meaning of the gospels. Highly recommended.

Worth it. Will still take me a long time and I wish Amazon would stop pestering me for reviews.
