A Costly Freedom: A Theological Reading of Mark's Gospel by Brendan Byrne

By Brendan Byrne

With this learn of the Gospel of Mark, Brendan Byrne completes his trilogy of works at the Synoptic Gospels. Mark, the Cinderella gospel, as Byrne says, languished for millennia within the shadow of Matthew ("the first gospel") and Luke. starting within the 19th century, students exposed what's now often authorised because the much more likely situation: that Mark used to be the pioneer, making a new literary style ("gospel") within which to speak the "Good information of Jesus Christ." This excellent news in response to Mark is basically a message of freedom a freedom, even if, that does "not turn up for free: a value to Jesus, a price to the daddy, and a value to these referred to as to affiliate themselves along with his lifestyles and mission." Mark holds out to us either the cost and the promise of freedom.

A high priced Freedom joins The Hospitality of God (on Luke) and Lifting the Burden (on Matthew) to make up a collection of critical partners to the gospels for preachers, academics, and those that easily are looking to learn the gospels for knowing and a deepening in their spirituality and faith.

Brendan Byrne, SJ, is professor of recent testomony at Jesuit Theological university, Parkville, Victoria, Australia. A member of the Pontifical Biblical fee (1990 '96) and Fellow of the Australian Academy of the arts (2000 '), he's the writer of 9 books and editor in leader of the theological magazine Pacifica.
