Neither commentary nor traditional meditations, Eby’s Markings are a spiritual memoir. His musings on 70 episodes or texts in the Gospel of Mark blend intellectual inquiry with confessional worship. They meld poignancy, whimsy, grit, doubt, sorrow, and inspiration. Anyone attending to the care of her or his soul will find nurture here.

Eby’s project emerged from the practice of old spiritual disciplines: Bible Study, meditation, prayer, contemplation, silence, writing. Using the Gospel of Mark for his own Markings, Eby explored the Gospel through the grid of his forty years teaching literature at the college level, reading and writing, listening to music, walking in the orchard and woods, living in Africa, heeding one wise woman, rearing children, stumbling towards God. Then, under the influence of a given text and personal memory, he sat down and wrote, yielding these personal musings on a spare but elegant Gospel.
