Endorsements & Reviews-

"Waetjen offers us an illuminating reading of Mark's Gospel that was forged out of his own experience in the Third World. Working from a fresh translation that lays bare the Markan style, Waetjen traces the stark conflict between the new ordering of power announced by Jesus and the tenacious domination of the ruling elite in Israel's agrarian society. This innovative application of the sociology of millennialism to the phenomenon of Mark's narrative world is loaded with insights that will be of interest to readers at every level."
--David Rhoads, Lutheran School of Theology, Chicago
