Product Description

Long before the Gospel writers put pen to papyrus, the earliest Christians participated in the powerful rituals of baptism and the Lord's Supper, which fundamentally shaped their understanding of God, Christ, and the world in which they lived.

In The Gospel of Mark: A Liturgical Reading, respected biblical scholar and teacher Charles A. Bobertz presents a careful reading of selected portions, based off his own translations, of all sixteen chapters of the Gospel from the perspective of understanding the entire Gospel as symbolic narrative inspired by Mark's understanding of the sacred reality--what we now call sacrament--of baptism and the Lord's Supper. His exploration delves into the ways in which cultural anthropology and ritual studies elucidate ancient texts.

The Gospel of Mark: A Liturgical Reading offers a fresh, responsible, and creative proposal to a liturgical reading of the Gospel of Mark, inviting scholars, professors, and students, as well as church leaders and pastors to discover a way to read the Second Gospel that speaks from and to the heart of Christian liturgical experience.
