Review Comments for The Year of Mark

The Rev. Dr. J. Carl Gregg, Minister
Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Frederick (Maryland)

In the context of the twenty-first century American Empire, Sea Raven helps us respond to the call to read the Bible through a lens of nonviolence and peace with justice. This lectionary commentary will empower your preaching with the insights of postmodern biblical scholarship, geared toward the liberation of ourselves, our society, and our world.

Sea Raven displays the same irreverent approach to the religious establishment as Jesus Himself in His day. I lead a weekly guided imagery group based on Ignatian Contemplation. We enter a gospel story through the imagination. Often it is congenial for me to explore the passage beforehand in Theology from Exile to clear up any theological mysteries before we begin. I always feel rewarded for my efforts. Volume III: The Year of Mark continues the trend!
