Sintesi dell'editore

Most scholars agree that the Gospel according to Mark is the earliest of the four canonical gospels. It is also the shortest, with swift dramatic turns throughout its fast-paced narrative. Because of its brevity, Mark's Gospel leaves many questions unanswered, and it has often been overlooked in the history of Christianity.

As you will discover, though, Mark's Gospel is compelling in its combination of simplicity and sophistication. This audio course guides you through Mark's Gospel sequentially, offering you fresh insights and a deeper understanding of its overall shape and message. Prof. Ian Boxall, a celebrated New Testament scholar who taught at Oxford for 20 years, presents each lecture with an erudite yet accessible style.

This Bible study course will help you become more perceptive about Mark's challenging book. Under Prof. Boxall's expert guidance, you will explore what makes the Gospel of Mark unique. You will meet major and minor characters alike, and you will come to appreciate the "untamed" aspects of this Gospel, which embody the traditional symbol for St. Mark: the Lion. Along the way, you will explore such fascinating topics as Mark's presentation of Jesus, his use of parables, his symbolic use of geography, and his depiction of the disciples.

"Ian Boxall is one of the brightest and most incisive of younger British Catholic New Testament scholars. Before being head-hunted for Catholic University, Washington, he taught with distinction for some years in the Theology Faculty of Oxford University. He has a talent for expressing profound and illuminating truths in a succinct and understandable form." (Fr. Henry Wansbrough, OSB)
