Press Reviews

I thought I knew Mark’s Gospel but Rowan Williams has opened my eyes to see what I had not seen, and to no longer see what I believed I had seen. The Gospel of Mark is a fascinating text, inviting readers to understand Jesus in relation to themselves and themselves in relation to God. This book is a convincing interpretation and a deep meditation.

- Jürgen Moltmann, Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology University of Tübingen

In this short and very readable book, Rowan Williams has succeeded in conveying the essence of Mark’s Gospel. While he deals with the technical questions of origin and authorship, his main concern is with the way in which the Evangelist invites his readers into a relationship of trust with one who brings us into the transfiguring presence of God. There could be no better introduction to this enigmatic but profound Gospel.

- Morna D. Hooker, Lady Margaret’s Professor of Divinity Emerita University of Cambridge

This wonderful book shows how Mark’s beautiful and subtle gospel still challenges our understanding of God, and of how God works in our lives. It is an original work and so will be of interest to scholars, but it is written in a clear and vivid style that makes it accessible to everyone. I could not put it down.

- Timothy Radcliffe, OP, Director of the Las Casas Institute Blackfriars, Oxford
