Come and experience the Scriptures in a fresh and life-giving way. The time promised by God has come at last! . . . The Kingdom of God is near! Repent of your sins and believe the Good News! --Mark 1:15 In this collaboration between Alabaster Co. and IVP, the full text of the Gospel of Mark is presented alongside beautiful full-color photographs and guided meditations by Bible teacher Tracey Gee. Carefully designed as a practical, study-focused version of Alabaster's other bible books, the Alabaster Guided Meditations invite readers into deeper reflection by incorporating the church's ancient lectio divina and visio divina traditions. Though the intersection of New Living Translation Bible passages, photography, thoughtfully designed layouts, and meditations, readers are invited to experience the Gospel of Mark anew.
