"Exegetes who can work within a narrative framwork or narrative readers who attend to exegesis are becoming increasingly rare in critical scholarship, and I value Henderson's sensitivities to both. The maturity of her writing makes even the most technical features of the book enjoyable to read." - Daniel M. Gurtner, Bethel Seminary Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
An exploration of the topic of discipleship in Mark's gospel as it relates to Jesus' own mission and purpose. Focusing on six passages that highlight Jesus' interaction with his followers, Henderson frames her readers' understanding of both Jesus and his disciples in the context of Mark's decidedly apocalyptic worldview.
