Drama. Irony. Betrayal. Miracles. A holy war with the whole world at stake.
The Gospel of Mark is an intense, wild, impossible story told at a breakneck pace with twists and turns that shock and surprise those with eyes to see and ears to hear. Despite being laid on the shelf, literally deserted for hundreds of years, the shortest of all the Gospels is experiencing a revival.
Written in an engaging, lively style, Loosing the Lion will captivate readers, helping them finally understand the Gospel that has been misunderstood for so long. This Gospel’s literary brilliance, brings us to the threshold of an encounter with the living Jesus, who reveals his mysteries, and ultimately himself, to those who approach him and dwell in his presence. And when we do encounter him, “The proper response is repentance, joining God’s army to be liberated, and once liberated, advancing the liberation of the whole cosmos, which, ultimately, is the content of the Gospel Jesus calls us to believe in. Liberation is coming. Join the resistance.”
