Wilfrid J. Harrington explores his favorite gospel, the Gospel of Mark, with emphasis on why Mark tells the story the way he does. Harrington backs up his appreciation of the literary sophistication by outlining Mark’s technique. He demonstrates Mark’s storytelling and writing ability, and discusses the centrality of the cross to Mark’s account of Jesus. Mark’s theology is a theology of the cross, and his Jesus is the most human out of all the gospels. Harrington admires Mark’s realism, and confirms his conviction that the cross is indeed the heart of Christianity.
