About the book

This work combines outstanding biblical scholarship with lively faith to help Catholics interpret the Gospel of Mark and apply it to Christian life today. It provides a readable and informative commentary. The Gospel of Mark, as well as the entire Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture series, responds to the desire of Catholics to study the Bible in depth and in a way that integrates Scripture with Catholic doctrine, worship, and daily life. It is an invaluable resource for pastoral ministers. Clergy and laity have praised the usefulness of The Gospel of Mark for personal study and lectio divina, the spiritual reading of Sacred Scripture.

About the author

Mary Healy (STD, Pontifical Gregorian University) is associate professor of Sacred Scripture at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit, Michigan, and senior fellow at the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology. She is the author of Men and Women Are from Eden and coeditor of several books on biblical interpretation.

What are people saying about this title?

"This well-written book fills a very important niche in our appreciation of the Gospels. Healy combines literary sensitivity with theological vigor, resulting in a reading of Mark that puts a compelling face on the message of this Gospel."
- Gary Anderson, professor of Old Testament, University of Notre Dame

"Though Mark's Gospel is the shortest Gospel in length, it is certainly not short in profound insights on the life and teaching of Our Lord. Mary Healy plumbs the depths and unwraps the riches of this Gospel for both the serious scholar and the novice alike in her easy-to-read and lucid style. With the incisiveness of a surgeon and the clarity of a scholar, she pulls back the curtain on the first century and the ministry of Jesus Christ. This commentary on Mark will fill an important place in my library!"
- Steve Ray, lecturer; author of the Bible Study Guides for Genesis and Acts; and writer, producer, and host of the ten-part documentary series Footprints of God: The Story of Salvation from Abraham to Augustine

"Mary Healy skillfully and insightfully moves her readers to plumb the spiritual depths of Mark's Gospel through helpful sections of 'living tradition' and 'reflection and application.' I have found her commentary a boon in homily preparation. If the other volumes in the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture series live up to the high standard that Healy has attained, Catholic Christians will be enriched and grateful."
- Robert J. Karris, OFM, research professor, The Franciscan Institute, St. Bonaventure University
