Move over St. Paul! Jun 12, 2003
The Bible Geek is a disciple of Jesus Christ, a comic, a big brother, an evangelist, and a sinner, which makes his biblical reflections inspiring and transformational for teens seeking Christ amid the culture of death. Hart incorporates every aspect of teens' lives and his own experiences of living as a disciple into his writing and reflections on Scripture - truth and sincerity radiate each passage. His command of youth culture and ability to break open the Word of God lend to this book's incredible ingenuity and wit. To date, I have not come across a more usable Scripture reflection for teens. Regardless of religious affiliation, teens everywhere can relate to his perspective on modern-day discipleship. The Bible Geek is out to dispel a nasty rumor that Catholics don't know or understand the Scriptures!
keep 'em comin'! May 22, 2003
I've given this book to a handful of teens already and now I'm back on line to buy more copies to give away. That pretty much says it all. Finally, its the answers to the questions they've felt too dumb to ask and more questions they didn't even know how to ask. It's an awesome book - they love it. Heck, I love it - and I'm 25!
Each Verse! May 3, 2003
'Along the way He calls upon us to use the gifts He's bestowed on us for HIS glory, not for our own' (pg. 125). Mark Hart has clearly used the gifts God has bestowed on him by being able to pick apart a single verse from the Bible and transform it into something that fits each person that reads it! Many of us read the Bible all the time but never challenge ourselves enough to go deeper and read EACH passage carefully. Mark Hart, writing from his heart and experiences, makes the Bible fun to read and also applicable to our modern times. His humor, the personal touch he includes, and his deep faith in the church make this book a great resource for people of all ages. Mark makes reading the Bible memorable; I guarantee that the analogies he makes will stick in your mind the next time you read or hear the passage.
A Must Read for Every Teen! May 3, 2003
In his book, �Ask the Bible Geek�, Mark Hart gives clear answers to difficult questions, with an amazingly attractive flare. By the questions he seeks to answer, you can tell that Mark knows teens; by the way he answers those questions, you can tell he can speak to them in their language; and by the faith he gives in those answers, you can tell he loves Christ and the Church. His layout of the questions and answers is simple, allowing the reader to get right to the heart of the matter. Mark�s ability to answer the questions clearly, based in Scripture, allows the reader to come away with some real clarity, not confusion and fluff. There are many ways this book can be used: It can be a great gift for teens getting Confirmed; it can be a great resource for a teen to use if he/she is questioning the meaning of life; it can provide a youth minister over a year�s worth of Bible Studies and discussion material. Every teenager, whether they are Catholic, non-Catholic, or non-Christian, should get a copy of this book: It will allow them to see a different side of the world than what our pop-culture gives. It will allow them to know the Truth!
"Death cannot stop true love" Apr 25, 2003
Mark has this incredible gift. Not just with words, but his actions. He is so passionate about Jesus, being Catholic and his faith. He has this light about him that you can't help but see. He has a way of getting anyone to think. In this book he really digs deep and connects the scriptures to everyday occurances. It's great to see that what started as being a bi-weekly email (and still is) has had such a huge success. He brings the truth in a humorous, yet completely understandable way. I highly recommend it to anyone.
