Borg explores the historical background of the oldest Gospel and offers the reader an accessible means of understanding and evaluating this book, using the approach that made his Reading Jesus Again for the First Time so popular. As one of the best-known contemporary scholars of the historical Jesus, he applies everything now known about the era of Jesus' life to our understanding of Mark's Gospel, making it all the more relevant and inspirational to audiences today. This is one of the first books in a series, co-sponsored by the Anglican Association of Biblical Scholars. It is written in accessible language, sensitive to the needs of people who have little or no experience in reading the Bible. Each book focuses on exploring the historical and critical background, as well as how the biblical texts written centuries ago can still speak to readers today.

The Gospel of Mark, the earliest and the shortest of the Gospels, plays an important role in Christian life. In Mark, Jesus as the proclaimer of the Kingdom of God, or "the way," is shown to be a crucified Messiah who is both personal and political, spiritual and social. Best-selling scholar and author Marcus Borg looks at the Gospel of Mark in this volume, approaching it from a historical perspective (how Mark, around the year 70, tells the story of Jesus) and a metaphorical one (the more-than-literal or more-than-historical meanings of Mark's language and stories). Books in this series, co-sponsored by the Anglican Association of Biblical Scholars, are written in accessible language, sensitive to the needs of people who have little or no experience in reading the Bible. Each book focuses on exploring the historical and critical background, as well as how the biblical texts written centuries ago can still speak to readers today. Study questions are included.
