Item description for Call and Consequences: A Womanist Reading of Mark by Raquel A. St Clair...

A womanist reading of the Gospel of Mark. Addresses questions of the necessity of suffering.

Publishers Description
"The son of man must suffer," Jesus tells his disciples in the Gospel of Mark, and interpreters agree this warning is centrally important to the Gospel. But why must Jesus suffer, and why must his disciples face suffering if they would follow him? Is this a matter of "divine necessity," or the consequence of historical opposition to Jesus' cause?Raquel St. Clair brings a womanist perspective to these questions, noting that marginalized persons, particularly women of color, have too often experienced the call to discipleship as a call simply to "suffering, shame, and surrogacy." Her close reading of the Gospel of Mark highlights the importance of freely accepting the consequences of answering Jesus' call.

Reviews - What do customers think about Call and Consequences: A Womanist Reading of Mark?

Outstanding  Nov 25, 2008
This is an outstanding perspective on a gospel written for Romans in the first century, but analyzed by a women in the twentieth century. We must expand our thinking of God, and this author does just that expansion of the mind through Mark's account of Jesus Christ. This book is a great oppurtunity to expand our thinking of God through an African American woman scholar.
