With much appreciation to the kind soul who sent me this for review…

Because someone, I suspect, has a sneaking suspicion that I love the Gospel of Mark…

“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.
