In “Say to this Mountain” Myers is joined by a team of authors, Catholic and Protestant, committed to the work of justice and peace, the renewal of the church, and to Christian discipleship. With Myers they share in the conviction that Mark’s story has transforming power only as it intersects with our own life stories and the boarder story of the times in which we live. The authors of this book have designed a process for reading the Gospel of Mark in which each of the three circles of story informs the other.
