A good introduction to the Gospel of Mark as a narrative story. The authors apply the practice of literary analysis, and look at the storytelling narratives in the book of Mark. While the authors assume Mark is historically accurate, this book can be read without cringing by people who do not see accuracy in the narrative, as it deals solely with literary analysis. In fact, for those who have devoured works of the Biblical scholars, this work actually helps to sort out some of the tangled webs of history and tradition; so many techniques used in the book are so obviously literary that it begins to look, on its face, as if the author was telling a story rather than reporting history, which uses different techniques to engage the reader. Overall, a good complement to any library on comparative religions, biblical criticism, or freethought.
Review: Mark as Story: An Introduction to the Narrative of a GospelUser Review - Goodreads
Such a good read (I read the third edition). It helped me understand Mark in a fresh way, especially learning to think of it as a story to be told, not read. And that in Mark Jesus is not divine.
