Item Description...
Overview
With this study of the Gospel of Mark, Brendan Byrne completes his trilogy of works on the Synoptic Gospels. Mark, the "Cinderella gospel," as Byrne says, languished for millennia in the shadow of Matthew ("the first gospel") and Luke. Beginning in the nineteenth century, scholars uncovered what is now generally accepted as the more likely scenario: that Mark was the pioneer, creating a new literary genre ("gospel") in which to communicate the "Good News of Jesus Christ." This Good News according to Mark is essentially a message of freedom-a freedom, however, that does "not come about without cost: a cost to Jesus, a cost to the Father, and a cost to those called to associate themselves with his life and mission." Mark holds out to us both the price and the promise of freedom.

"A Costly Freedom" joins "The Hospitality of God" (on Luke) and "Lifting the Burden" (on Matthew) to make up a set of indispensable companions to the gospels for preachers, teachers, and those who simply want to read the gospels for understanding and a deepening of their spirituality and faith.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Worthy completion of a series of studies of Synoptic Gospels  Feb 7, 2009
Brendan Byrne has a gift of rooting his studies in careful scholarship while writing in an accessible style. The reader may therrefore carry the study further by consulting the numerous references to more classic exigetical studies and critical judgements of certain approaches. He also does not hesitate to apply the message of the Gospel to the present times.
The reader may therefore read A Costly Freedom on various levels. It is therefore a solid reference book that can well be referred to again and again, depending on the circumstances and needs of the reader.
