Editorial Reviews

Review

A rare combination of biblical exegesis, theological insight, and pastoral sensitivity, these impressive essays on Mark's Gospel will help students and all those interested in Scripture to make links between the first and the twenty-first centuries. . . . The result is both a fresh reading of Mark and a primer of Christian spirituality.
Daniel J. Harrington, S.J., Weston Jesuit School of Theology, Cambridge, Massachusetts


In this learned yet deeply contemplative look at Mark's Gospel, we are invited to a fresh encounter with Jesus Christ. William Reiser's consoling yet discomforting study cuts to the heart of Mark's message: Salvation in Christ comes in and through solidarity with his people. With the confident poise of a seasoned scholar and teacher, Reiser challenges us to meet Jesus in our time and place by discovering him among his own people, especially those who are last, littlest, and least.
Michael Downey, Professor of Systematic Theology and Spirituality, St. John's Seminary, Archdiocese of Los Angeles


. . . a thorough and pastorally rich engagement with the major motifs of Mark, drawing out the Gospel's christology and its challenging portrayal of Christian life.
The Bible Today


The distinction between empathy with an ancient author and modernizing him is always difficult to sustain and it is clear that from time to time Reiser strays into modernizing; but the reader will find it rewarding and challenging to follow his path.
Epworth Review


. . . provides a fresh encounter with Jesus as portrayed by Mark and provides the reader with a reflection on discipleship that both challenges and consoles; at the same time the author emphasizes the difference between consolation and comfort. . . . Reiser's treatment of Jesus' suffering and its implications for discipleship is perhaps the most powerful aspect of this book.
