Beginning this Sunday, August 29, we go back to hearing from Mark’s gospel at Sunday Eucharist. These two books will open the gospel for you. Mark’s Gospel: the Whole Story is a short (88 pages) and very readable introduction to Mark. Each of the 11 chapters covers a portion of his Gospel. The questions after each chapter stimulate sharing about the portrait of Jesus Mark draws for his community and for us today. Ideal for faith-sharing groups and homilists.
Mark devotes 60 of the 660 verses in his Gospel to stories about women. Holy Women, Full of Grace tells their stories and creates a litany of prayers to them. For both individuals and small groups. Book groups have found Holy Women a prayerful break from their usual choices. Go to goodgroundpress.com to view the art and sample pages of both books. Then order online or call 800-232-5533. Thank you.
