The Gospel of Mark, as read by Megan McKenna, becomes a roadmap for Christian discipleship. As McKenna works her way through the Gospel, she opens up the meaning of the texts and demonstrates what they may have meant to the disciples and to the community that became the early church. A master storyteller, she also presents stories that reinforce the texts of the Gospel. And, for her, the crux of the matter is what this Gospel says to us today.

In the authors words, "We must walk with the companions of Jesus, with Peter, James, John and the others, men and women like us, and listen to the Word of God in Jesus. We must let the Gospel convict us, convert us, confirm us and call us to repentance."
