Ahora, a por Lucas Jan 6, 2009
Megan ha logrado con su comentario que leamos el evangelio de Marcos como lo leyo la comunidad a la cual iba dirigido en principio. No es una tarea facil pero el libro esta escrito con sencillez y no habra lector, que quiera ir hasta el fondo del evangelio de Marcos, que no lo consiga con este libro. Megan es muy aficionada a las historias y los cuentos para ilustrar su enorme caudal de conocimiento. Yo no las hubiera necesitado y el libro podria haberse quedado en doscientas paginas en vez de las doscientas veintiocho que tiene. Pero, entiendo, que a muchos lectores estas historias puedan ayudarles a disfrutar de la vieja sabiduria.
