Item description for Mark: The Gospel of Jesus by William G. Johnsson...
Overview The Greek word that describes that message is euaggelion, news of victory, or good news. That is the word John Mark uses as the title of his gospel. Christian tradition says Mark ultimately founded the church of Alexandria and died during the persecution of Nero. Now William Johnsson, drawing on his multicultural experience, offers us new insights into the Gospel of Mark. How do we know we can trust the Gospels as reliable sources on the life of Jesus? Aren't their accounts of miracles and exorcisms outmoded by modern science and psychology? Why did Jesus tell people to be quiet about His miracles? What ethnic insight helps us understand the feeding of the 4,000? What did Jesus say about power, sex, and money? And what generation did He mean when He said, "This generation shall not pass before all these things are fulfilled"? "I have some acquaintance," writes the author, "with 'God men.' I lived in India and on two separate occasions encountered two supposed incarnations-Meher Baba of Ahmendnagar, and Rajneesh of Poona (later of Antelope, Oregon). Both attracted and were revered by international followings. Both claimed divine powers. "Both died. Both are no more. "Twenty years later you won't find congregations singing hymns to them. Their movements collapsed with their death. "But Jesus is alive!"

SO YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN MIRACLES OR GOD? Dec 3, 2009
If you don't believe in miracles or a personal, caring God,I dare you to read this book! Doru tells his own incredible story of standing firm for unpopular beliefs, the persecution he endured, and the amazing, repeated ways of escape that miraculously opened the door to freedom and the call for service God gave him. He believes he saw an angel more than once! Is Heaven still connected to Earth, or what?
This is a book you will want to read more than once! It is also a book with a fast flowing narrative that begs to be read in one sitting.
If you put it down and mutter, "That's fine for him, but what has God ever done for me!" perhaps, you haven't really put God to the test. Try Him and be prepared to be pleasantly surprised!
