Item description for Preaching Mark by Robert S. Reid...
Overview Preaching Mark is a concentrated reader-response commentary on the Gospel of Mark that examines the Gospel's strategy of composition in light of first century rhetorical conventions. It offers a comprehensive chiastic analysis of the Gospel text directed to the purpose of recovering Mark's voice amidst the one-thing-after-another of his Jesus story. The purpose is to discover how Mark is using that story to preach gospel to his intended audience. The book includes model sermons based on the commentary by noted homileticians: Ronald Allen, Stephen Farris, Lucy Lind Hogan, Judith McDaniel, James Mead, Paul Scott Wilson, and the author. The book is intended for preachers who would find it valuable in devising their own sermon strategy to have specific recourse to a way of discovering how a gospel writer was using the Jesus story to preach to his own community. This is a study in Mark's strategy, his fictive argument embedded in the arrangement of his presentation of the Jesus story.

Reviews - What do customers think about Preaching Mark?
This book put new life in my study of Mark and the NT. Dec 24, 1999
This book offers a chiastic analysis of the entire gospel of Mark. I've seen bits and pieces of this on the net and in commentaries, but I have never seen anyone do it for a whole book of the Bible. And on top of that, Professor Reid helps you understand what difference the structure is supposed to make. This is the book for anyone who ever wanted to know what to do with rhetoric and Chiasmus in the New Testament. Not just for scholars, but something that can really give value to your personal Bible study. It even has sermons by top teachers of homiletics.
