A Pedagogical Commentary Apr 9, 2006
Andrew Page invented the genre of what I would call a pedagogical commentary. The Mark Experiment is a huge surprise for those who - like myself - feel hopeless in the area of memorizing texts. With outstanding pedagogical skills, Andrew Page commits the stories of Mark's Gospel to the memories of those who are willing to give it a try. I did and it was totally rewarding to me. Since I read and experimented with The Mark Experiment, I see the Jesus-event in a new light. I see the whole story, not only bits and pieces here and there. Moreover, I feel much closer to the heartbeat of the early Christians who most likely did what Andrew Page wants us to do: they have learnt the order of events in the life of Jesus. The Mark Experiment is an excellent book!
Get to Know Jesus .. and the Apostles Apr 4, 2006
This book is excellent. Its goal is to elucidate an underlying structure in the Gospel of Mark that helps you - commit the Gospel to memory event by event, which helps you: - see the connections between events and how the larger themes fit together - feel like part of the story and get to know Jesus better - do "bible study" without a Bible and keeps the Scriptures on your mind
It's been so fun to read through the Gospel using this book together with friends. You can read the Mark Experiment straight through and gain from the learning the connections betweens events in the Gospel, but the real fun is practicing telling each other the Gospel. We've been doing it together in our "small group" -- the author even includes a section in the back of study questions and other suggestions for incorporating it into group study.
Since becoming a Christian, I cannot remember a time when I have seen a more marked deepening and sharpening of my relationship with Christ.
