Item description for "Say to This Mountain": Mark's Story of Discipleship by Ched Myers, Cynthia D. Moe-Lobeda & Stuart Taylor...

A "team authored," popular-level version of Ched Myers' monumental study of Mark, which adapts its socio-rhetorical method of reading to a work ideal for study and reflection by groups or individuals with limited background in biblical scholarship. Walter Wink called the best-selling Binding the Strong Man, the work upon which this book is based, "quite simply the most important commentary on a book of Scripture since Barth's Romans." Now Say Unto this Mountain makes the powerful insights of that challenging commentary accessible and at the same time explores the connections between Mark's "handbook of discipleship" and the demands of our contemporary world.

In Say to this Mountain Myers is joined by a team of authors, Catholic and Protestant, committed to the work of justice and peace, the renewal of the church, and to Christian discipleship. With Myers they share in the conviction that Mark's story has transforming power only as it intersects with our own life-stories and the broader story of the times in which we live. Together, this team has designed a process for reading the Gospel of Mark in which each of the three circles of story informs the other.

Reviews - What do customers think about "Say to This Mountain": Mark's Story of Discipleship?

Incredibly hard to read  Oct 4, 2008
We picked this book as the source of a "Bible Study" in Church. HOWEVER, it's not very easy to adapt to a Sunday School discussion, and is very hard to read. It focused on the costumes of the times, and several other areas that you probably never considered. Which can be good or bad, depending on your view. I would NOT recommend it.
A Book That Presents The Challenge of Mark's Gospel  Nov 19, 2005
Ched Myers' BINDING THE STRONG MAN, first published in 1988, was one of the most innovative interpretations of Mark's Gospel in the twentieth century. Myers challenged readers to become involved in the story of Mark, which is believed to be the first of the four gospel accounts to be recorded. It can a sparse and at time harsh gospel, yet it is also the one that challenges the status quo perhaps more than any other writing in the New Testament. SAY TO THIS MOUNTAIN is an attempt by Myers and four other writers of different Christian religious traditions to make the concept underlying BINDING THE STRONGMAN accessible to a wider audience. Most of the readers of this book will presumably be American, and at least middle class, so the book challenges the reader to view the Gospel of Mark from the point of view of one who is at least somewhat privileged while also looking at larger world concerns.

This is a work that can easily be adapted for the purposes of a Bible study or discussion group. The book is organized by chapter and looks at the Gospel in the context of Mark's world and then looks at the words in the context of our own world. It also has an appendix that contains materials that will enhance reading this book. The Gospel of Mark appears in both the Roman Catholic lectionary and the common lectionary every three years. It fits rather well into the weekly gospels and would be a wonderful way of extending scripture lessons on a deeper level. It will also help people who preach and feel that a challenge of Mark is "more of the same" to find ways this gospel can both challenge and invigorate people.
