'Go into all the world and preach the goodness.' The Gospel of Mark shows us the reaction of the people to Jesus' ministry. While making clear Jesus' divinity, in Mark's account we also see a very human and even emotional Jesus. The Gospel of Mark is regarded by some as perhaps the most realistic of all the gospels. William Barclay delves with fascination into the questions that fill this gospel and into this joyous account of the life and teachings of Jesus. He offers us insightful new perspective on some of the more difficult passages in Mark's Gospel. It is commonly agreed that Mark was the first gospel to be written and Barclay's interpretation opens its ancient teachings to Christians in the modern world.
