Publisher's Description

Ira Brent Driggers examines the character of God as portrayed in the Gospel of Mark, paying particular attention to the way God factors into the unfolding conflict between Jesus and his disciples. Arguing that Mark depicts God as acting in two logically opposite ways, both independently of Jesus (as a distinct character) and through Jesus (possessing him from his baptism), he adds a level of complexity to Mark's portrayal of Jesus and sheds new light on the most enigmatic feature of Mark's narrative: the consistent and troubling misunderstanding of the disciples.

    This is a good academic read. I am interested and intrigued by the theological threads in Mark. The connections made are interesting and thought provoking, the book is written in a very academic style and not for the average lay person. It's lay out and structure make it a difficult resource/commentary as well.
