Item Description...
Overview
This book is not about the Gospel of Mark. Rather, it is a book about the experience of reading the Gospel of Mark. By redirecting critical focus away from the text per se and toward the reading of the text, we gain new sensitivites that should enable us to read in new ways and achieve new insights.

Publishers Description
First published in hardcover in 1991, Robert Fowler s Let the Reader Understand was ahead of its time. Using reader-response criticism, a pioneering method for reading the Gospel of Mark, he invited contemporary readers to participate actively in making the meaning of the Gospel. Ten years later, the importance of this methodology is clear to all. In Let the Reader Understand Fowler provides clues to the rhetorical strategies used in Mark, and asks the reader to be attentive to the ways in which the narrative weaves its spell. He also demonstrates how the narrative provides both direction and indirection for the reader through its use of irony and paradox. Rather than providing a complete exposition of Mark, Fowler s book offers hints and suggestions about how readers can read Mark and fashion contemporary meaning for themselves.Robert M. Fowler is Professor of Religion and Chair of the Religion Department at Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea, Ohio. He is the author of Loaves and Fishes: The Function of the Feeding Stories in the Gospel of Mark and is a contributor to The Postmodern Bible.For: Seminarians; graduate students; undergraduates; general audiences; pastors>

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The only way to understand  Feb 8, 2002
Anyone who attempts to read, understand, teach or learn anything about the Gospel of Mark, whether cleric or lay, scholar or non-scholar, MUST read this first. No section, episode or verse should be commented on, interpreted, or even read without the necessary insights of this book. Before we can understand a reading of Mark, we must understand HOW to read Mark. Only after reading this book did I even begin to grasp any other introduction, commentary, or interpretation of the world-changing literary achievement we know today as a gospel. This book unlocks our minds from reading backward through orthodoxy and instead allows a fresh, unbiased reading of what has been unrecognized as a truly literary masterpiece. Mr. Fowler is deserving of any and all accolades he receives for this landmark work of scholarship.
 
Out of Print? Tragic!  Apr 15, 2000
This book is amazing. During the course of writing a master's thesis on Mark, I waded through a LOT of commentaries and this is the only one that I would recommend to the general reader. Here is why: he makes you see so plainly what you almost certainly did not notice before by using simple techniques of literary criticsm to make the text plain. No matter what it takes, hunt this one down.
