• The Gospel According to Mark: A Participatory Study Guide

Jesus at Odds with the World.


Mark's gospel has often been given a dismissive review. For many it is considered to be a plagarized version of Matthew's gospel, but modern investigations have revealed that Matthew and Luke actually borrowed from Mark! (No copyright laws in the first century!)


Dr. Bob McKibben has brought his gift for teaching to this biblical study. Here are some words from reviewers:


The book, [the author] indicates, is designed to build the participants faith in Jesus Christ as the Son of God. In fifteen chapters, McKibbens challenges the reader to explore the background of the gospel, meditate on it, question it, pray over it and share one’s experience in reading it. – Dr. William P. Tuck, retired pastor and professor, author of The Church Under the Cross, The Last Words from the Cross and A Positive Words for Christian Lamenting: Funeral Homilies


Dr. Bob McKibben’s new contribution to the study of Scripture offers the student an interesting synthesis of the practice of lectio divina with practical applications to the text at hand. … poses questions that take the reader on a path which weaves the message of Scripture into the reality of everyday life. – Dr. Nancy Watson, Director of Ministry, Alabama – West Florida Conference, The United Methodist Church


The bonus of each lesson is the discussion questions that first ask the reader to reflect on the narrative of Mark for its own sake and then on how the events that are recounted in the story touch on today’s believers who are still at odds with the world. This study will be a valuable tool for groups who want to grapple with Mark’s story about Jesus, especially for those who are taking their first steps into the Gospel. – C. Drew Smith, Ph.D., author of Reframing a Relevant Faith


This commentary makes use of the latest in Markan scholarship, while remaining faithful to the goal — to engage the reader in a deep study of Scripture. – Joel Watts, author of Mimetic Criticism and the Gospel of Mark: An Introduction and Commentary, Editor of From Fear to Faith: Stories of Hitting Spiritual Walls
