The Bringing the Bible to Life series, a companion to Zondervan's NIV Application Commentary, is intended to bring both the historical meaning of the biblical text and its contemporary significance.

Sessions on Mark include: * 1 The Messiah Arrives * 2 Who Speaks for God? * 3 Fruitful and Unfruitful Soil * 4 Fear and Faith * 5 The Training of the Twelve * 6 Unclean? * 7 The Unexpected Mission * 8 The Right Question * 9 The Fruitless Tree * 10 What Matters Now * 11 Betrayal * 12 End and Beginning
