Say to This Mountain

Mark's Story of Discipleship
  • By Ched Myers
Product Description
A "team-authored", popular-level version of Ched Myers' monumental study of Mark, Binding the Strong Man, which adapts its socio-literary method of reading to a work ideal for study and reflection by groups or individuals with limited background in biblical scholarship. Walter Wink called the best-selling Binding the Strong Man "quite simply the most important commentary on a book of scripture since Barth's Romans". Now, "Say to this Mountain" makes the powerful insights of that challenging commentary accessible and at the same time explores the connections between Mark's "handbook of discipleship" and the demands of our contemporary world. In "Say to this Mountain" Myers is joined by a team of authors, Catholic and Protestant, committed to the work of justice and peace, the renewal of the church, and to Christian discipleship. With Myers they share in the conviction that Mark's story has transforming power only as it intersects with our own life-stories and the broader story of the times in which we live. Together, this team has designed a process for reading the Gospel of Mark in which each of the three circles of story informs the other. Carefully organized in reading units for easy study each section includes two parts: "The Text in Context" looks briefly at the themes raised by each episode in Mark's Gospel. "The Word in Our World" draws out one common thread and reflects upon it in light of our contemporary situation. Throughout the book meditations and practical suggestions emphasize the connections between reflective prayer and concerted action.
