St. Mark's Gospel: A Commentary for Believers
Author
Thomas Crean
ISBN
9781990685439
Many so-called scholarly commentaries on the gospels fail to satisfy, or even disquiet, their readers because they are not written in the light of faith. Such commentaries achieve only a pseudo-objectivity, since the principal figure in the gospels is Jesus Christ, whose identity cannot be known by 'flesh and blood' but only by a supernatural insight, given from above. The present work is inspired by the approach of the Fathers of the Church, and attempts to speak of St. Mark's gospel in the light of both reason and of faith. It seeks above all to contemplate the mysteries of this gospel, while incorporating genuine insights from modern scholarship.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Thomas CreanPublisher: Arouca PressPublished: 02/13/2023ISBN: 9781990685439Pages: 160Weight: 0.46lbsSize: 8.50h x 5.50w x 0.37d
