By Thomas C. Oden

A Christianity this day 1999 ebook of the yr! The early church valued the Gospel of Mark for its protection of the apostolic voice and gospel narrative of Peter. but the early church fathers very hardly produced sustained statement on Mark. This brisk-paced and powerful little Gospel, rather a lot loved by way of sleek readers, used to be overshadowed within the minds of the fathers by means of the magisterial Gospels of Matthew and John. yet now with the help of computing device searches, an abundance of remark has been stumbled on to be embedded and interleaved amidst the textual documents of patristic homilies, apologies, letters, commentaries, theological treatises and hymnic verses. during this historic Christian remark on Mark, the insights of Augustine of Hippo and Clement of Alexandria, Ephrem the Syrian and Cyril of Jerusalem take part a polyphony of interpretive voices of the japanese and Western church from the second one century to the 7th. St. Mark's Gospel monitors the evocative energy of its tale, parables and fervour because it ignites a super show of theological perception and pastoral knowledge. the traditional Christian remark on Mark (now in its moment variation) opens up a long-forgotten passage throughout the arid and precipitous slopes of post-Enlightenment severe interpretation and bears us alongside to a fertile valley basking within the sunshine of theological and non secular interpretation. In those pages we input the interpretive global that lengthy nurtured the good premodern pastors, theologians and saints of the church.
