Examining the character of God as portrayed in Mark's Gospel, Driggers adds a level of complexity to the biblical narrative when he traces how the Lord acts through Jesus and independent of him. He also sheds new light on the consistent and troubling misunderstanding of the disciples. 148 pages, softcover from Westminster John Knox.
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.
Ira Brent Driggers is Assistant Professor of Religion at Pfeiffer University in Misenheimer, North Carolina.
