Meeting St. Mark Today, the final book in Fr. Daniel J. Harrington’s series on the Gospels, is a straightforward, practical resource for lay Catholics who want a better understanding of this synoptic Gospel. And, like the other books in the Meeting . . . Today series, it effectively closes the gap between modern biblical scholarship and authentic Christian spirituality.
The book begins with background information on the Evangelist and his Gospel, and then moves quickly into a concise but complete narrative analysis of the Gospel. Part Three of the book explains how Mark’s Gospel provides answers to two essential questions: What did Jesus suffer?, and Why did Jesus suffer? It also proposes answers to the universal question, Why do people suffer? The book’s final section includes five meditations on suffering. Additionally, each chapter concludes with questions for reflection and discussion, ideal for group or individual Bible study.
Ultimately, Meeting St. Mark Today opens the theological treasure chest of this Gospel, enabling us to see how Jesus’ suffering and the mystery of the cross can reshape our faith and our lives.
