Publisher's Description

"Follow Me," Jesus told them, "and I will make you into fishers of men!" Immediately they left their nets and followed Him. --Mark 1:17-18 The Gospel of Mark is a book of action and passion. Events happen one after another, with a vivid sense of immediacy and urgency. Jesus’ emotions come through strongly--at times he is angry and distressed, other times filled with compassion. In this volume, Michael Card provides a lively tour of the Gospel of Mark. As a friend and interpreter of Simon Peter, Mark gives firsthand glimpses of the life and ministry of Jesus in vibrant and energetic narration. The first Gospel to be written, Mark is a "pamphlet for hard times," encouraging Christians that all their sufferings were already endured by Jesus. Accompany Mark on his journey with Jesus. The more clearly you see Jesus here, the greater your passion will be for him.

Editorial Reviews

"These volumes help us discover the biblical text for ourselves, ask our own questions and discover deeper truths. Taking seriously the individual life of each gospel writer, the Biblical Imagination Series reintegrates our minds with our hearts to recapture our imagination with the beauty and power of Christ. . . . Heartily recommended!"
"The depth and format definitely work well as a devotional resource. In fact, it is hard to imagine a better use for it than personal or small group devotions. . . . Card writes a very engaging and accessible purview into Mark and his book."
" Mark is not a book to be read quickly, but to savor slowly. You'll find new insight from Card's richly textured work, allowing the Biblical material to penetrate your heart more deeply."
