Catalyzing Reader-Response to the Oral Gospel

A Rhetorical Analysis of the Markan Text's Convincing and Convicting Devices
  • By Mwaniki Karura
$31.49
($34.99)
Product Description

Dr. Mwaniki Karura provides fresh insight into the Gospel of Mark, its audience, and its purpose in this in-depth study of the Markan text and its oral context. Through careful analysis of the rhetorical layers in Mark, Karura establishes the use of Old Testament quotations, miracle stories, and the passion narratives as tools to galvanize its readers' response to the oral gospel they had already received. Dr. Karura demonstrates how Mark's gospel exists as both a challenge and an encouragement, utilizing parables such as the sower and that of the wicked tenants, to reflect its readers' own hearts. In condemning its audience's lukewarm response to the gospel they had heard preached, it simultaneously seeks to inspire obedience, faith, and whole-hearted passion for that same gospel.

This is an excellent resource for scholars and preachers alike, as they seek to further understand the Markan text, its first-century audience, and the context of the early church.
