2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By S. McDonald on September 1, 2006
Format: Paperback
The authors have brought together an impressive list of homileticians and preachers to answer the question "How can we draw our congregations into the world that Mark has imagined for us in his gospel?" At the heart of this book is the homiletic work of Fred Craddock, addressing issues of whether the sermon says and does what the biblical text says and does and what qualities can enrich the sermon's form. Using concrete images and examples, this book combines the best of Markan scholarship (Morna Hooker) with the best of homiletic theory (Fred Craddock and Richard Ward) with the skill of preachers who connect the biblical text of Mark to the specific task of preaching.

Reading through this book for a preaching class with Fleer as a teacher, it is wonderful. I highly recommend it.

By Jeanne Lynn on October 20, 2011
Format: Paperback
When defining a "sermon," preachers, congregations and biblical scholars all seem to underscore different aspects. The audience, text, or the preacher each finds emphasis from different quarters - so is the stated premise of this book. This book sought to take the Markan text and reveal its different aspects that could provide a workable resource for preaching the Messiah the Gospel of Mark proclaims. To do this, the book incorporated the great preacher Fred Craddock and his homiletically generated insights, Morna Hooker's biblical studies, the theological work of Frederick Aquino, the cultural perspective of John Barton and the performance studies of Richard Ward. The book's second half provided sample sermons from specific texts incorporating differing aspects based on the theoretical underpinnings of the book's first section. No surprise, most of the sermons somehow incorporated Morna's theological insights. This book will be a welcome addition to anyone looking for different aspects of preaching Mark - especially for those who already enjoy Morna's outstanding biblical scholarship.
