With a deft touch and down-to-earth humour, Adrian Plass offers a heartfelt response to the life and ministry of Jesus as presented in the Gospel of Mark. ‘I have had a passion for Jesus for many years,’ says Plass. ‘In Jesus we meet a dynamic, hardworking, passionate member of the human race, a man, but a man who was also God. Stronger than all the powers of nature, he was nevertheless willing to become a servant so that people like you and I can be rescued from the worst of disasters.’ Plass brings his own unique perspective to this meditation on Mark, which has been broken into ninety sections that can be read in any order or continuously.
