Most Christians are familiar with the story told in Marks gospel from the fishermen leaving their nets, to the miracle of the loaves and fishes, to the political rumblings and the crucifixion. But no one knows who Mark really was or why this gospel was written or why its charged with such a sense of immediacy. For noted Jesus scholar Marcus Borg, reading Mark is like meeting Jesus again for the first time. Individual readers and parish study groups will learn about this earliest gospel from the perspective of an important Anglican theologian.

Marcus J. Borg is canon theologian at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Portland, Oregon, and was Hundere Distinguished Professor of Religion and Culture at Oregon State University. Described by the New York Times as "a leading figure in his generation of Jesus scholars," he has appeared on NBC's The Today Show and Dateline , ABC's World News , and NPR's Fresh Air . He is the author of the bestselling books Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time , The Heart of Christianity , Reading the Bible Again for the First Time , The God We Never Knew , Jesus , Speaking Christian , and The Evolution of the Word . His blog appears on the Progressive Christian Channel of Patheos.com.
