This volume, useful for individuals and groups, takes the reader through the Gospel of Mark, along the themes of Following the Teacher, Healer, Shepherd, Beloved, Lover, and King. It provides a text to read with other suggested texts, an explanation of the story, and then some suggestions on how to pray and embody the story. I thought the reflections on Mark 15 were particular refreshing and Stamper provides lots of tips on how to connect your own imagination and artistic sense with the Marcan story. A charming and delightful way to journey through Mark’s Gospel.
