A popular-level, team-authored version of Ched Myers' acclaimed study of Mark, Binding the Strong Man.

Say to This Mountain adapts the socio-literary method of reading for study and reflection by groups or individuals with less of a background in biblical scholarship, enabling them to explore the powerful connections between Mark's "handbook of discipleship" and the demands of the contemporary world.

Myers is joined by a team of authors, Catholic and Protestant, committed to the work of justice and peace, the renewal of the church, and to Christian discipleship. Together they share in the conviction that Mark's story has transforming power only as it intersects with our own life stories and the broader story of the times in which we live. Together, this team has designed a process for reading the Gospel of Mark in which each of the three circles of story informs the other.

Carefully organized in reading units for easy study, each section includes two parts:
  • The Text in Context looks briefly at the themes raised by each episode in Mark's Gospel.
  • The Word in Our World draws out one common thread and reflects upon it in light of our contemporary situation
Throughout the book, meditations and practical suggestions emphasize the connections between reflective prayer and concerted action. Appendices with mapping exercises and liturgical resources are also includeded. Say to This Mountain is ideal for small group study or individual reflection.
