Blind Sight is for the searching soul struggling to find an enduring faith. This remarkable retelling of The Gospel According to Mark sweeps away the dust of the ages, uncovering extraordinary hidden power, bridging millennia and recovering Jesus' vision of God. Out of archaic mists of an indistinct past, Blind Sight comes with good news for a world that only believes the bad. Emerging from more than twenty years of exhaustive research and literary analysis of Mark's first century roots, this fresh approach pushes beyond mere historical data and reveals a surprising vision to twenty-first century eyes. A key is turned that releases Mark's Gospel from its captivity to the thought forms of the ancients and makes the power of his message manifest in this new millennium. Approaching the biblical text with inquiring freshness Dr. Kennon accepted nothing uncritically. He read every book in the Old Testament and every reading into Greek classical literature seeking associations to Mark. He has written with confidence in his research and has dared say things no one else has, pushing beyond the limits of tradition and authority. This new narrative is based on the Greek text as Mark shaped it. Dr. Kennon relies on his own textual criticism and translation of the Greek using the traditional sixteen chapter format. Describing the pairs of opposites that make up the literary construction of the text, he identifies "synoptic composition" as a key to its interpretation. "Of greatest issue for Mark," Kennon says, "is the persistently stubborn human spirit that resists accepting the nearness and goodness of the rule of God." He expresses the hope that Blind Sight will help readers find God. "Underneath the mountain of confusion that has been dumped upon us" in this present age, writes Dr. Kennon, lives "the divine within us and beyond us." Blind Sight stands as a seminal witness to Mark's first century liberating word in the twenty first century.
