St Mark the Evangelist: the gospel for today by John Suggit
This booklet was written to celebrate the centenary of St Mark’s parish in Athlone ( 1901-2001). Copies are still available at R70 each + R48.75 postage.
Some Comments on the book:
the book offers something to theologians, pastors and bible study groups. Particularly outstanding is its relevance to the South African context….
John Suggit shows how openness tot he claims of Jesus in Mark leads to new and unexpected possibilities for those who have the courage to follow as his disciples, even when they fail.
