Product Description

On Your Mark is for those readers who wish to understand this ancient text as it was originally intended. The profound effect of the culture in which it was written, references used then that are now obsolete, and a knowledge of the audience are important to gaining understanding of scripture. Written for the average reader, this is not an academic resource, but one for those who want to "get set" before they "go" - those who want to learn to walk confidently before they try to run. Paperback.

Author Bio

William O'Malley, SJ, has taught religion to high school seniors for 45 years, presently at Fordham Prep in the Bronx.

Editorial Reviews

It will surely be instructive—and inspiring—to those who teach high school students and young adults.
The Bible Today

Deeper understanding of this Gospel calls for some knowledge of literary techniques (e.g. metaphor), religious history, Middle East and Roman culture of the period, and the life of Jesus—which the author covers succinctly in the front matter before the detailed literary, religious, and biographical analysis of Mark. Having taught high-school senior religious classes for more than four decades, O’Malley has the ability to convey the material in a useful and instructive style for the general reader.
Midwest Book Review

With engaging honesty and graceful humility, William O’Malley shows why he is a master teacher. On Your Mark is like no other introduction to Mark’s gospel I know of. Here’s why. The reader is drawn into the complex world of Mark with unfailing clarity from the superb ‘Introduction’ to O’Malley’s ‘A Sort-of Conclusion.’ In spite of the book’s subtitle: Reading Scripture Without a Teacher, settle in for the adventure of an intelligent, mind-opening, virtual conversation with one of America’s master teachers.
