Item Description...
Mark's Jesus is a retelling of the gospel of Mark, done in a unique way that brings Jesus to life in an immediate, visceral, compelling way. The author achieves this, not by giving us a new translation of the gospel text, but by augmenting the text with vivid descriptions in such a way that the story reads like a novel, giving Jesus a depth and breadth that some readers may not have experienced. In a very real sense, this book illustrates the canonical gospel as an artist might do with pictures. A study guide will be included.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Vivid descriptions of love personified  Mar 21, 2007
I am writing to tell you that I loved your book. I am someone who was (obviously) raised in the christian church, but never really developed "faith" in the christian sense. I have dabbled in all sorts of religions, prayer, meditation, you name it - and, like, most people, feel I understand what it means to be faithful.

I have always loved art, especially movies, for its power to convey real truth, the truth that transforms us and reminds us that there are experiences in the world we need to have if we are to know our true purpose. Movies like "The Motorcycle Diaries" and "On the Waterfront" made my heroes actors like Marlon Brando, and other activists and rebels, but Jesus was never a hero of mine. I just didn't know him!

What your book did was brought the story alive the way a movie does. I'd read and learned a while back that Jesus' teachings were "subversive" but I never dreamed they could "turn me on" in the way the movies about Che Guevara or other "rebels" did. In your book, every time Jesus spoke, aided by your skillful, wise and economic descriptions, there was that feeling again. You know the one I mean. The feeling of reality. The feeling of being addressed. This was a man so in love with life and with the world. And he meant business. Knowing this wonderful and humble fact makes his interactions with the truly faithful - the woman who anoints his head, the woman who touches his robe, the blind man - that much more stirring. What joy it is to live life fully, to be faithful, we are reminded!

Thank you for bridging the gap between "truth" and "religion" for me. I always believed in Jesus' teachings, but I think your book - oddly, in its attempt to humanize Jesus - broke through and showed me how truly amazing, and divine, this man was.
I felt like I was walking with Christ  Oct 27, 2006
This book is outstanding. Rev Purnell while keeping true to the gospel of Mark has managed to place the reader in the actual setting that Christ might have experienced as he taught the word of God. You truly felt like you were there walking with him, hearing his words and experiencing his feelings. It made Jesus human and very real to me. The words of the Gospel were never more alive. I felt the heat and dust of Palestine just as Jesus must have. Thank you for this wonderful insight you have given me.
