Richard Rohr says about this book and its author that ""the only authors worth reading are those who have done their homework--the homework of their own life and the study of other great minds and hearts. Gus Gordon has done both. Here you will reap and enjoy the rewards. By showing the deep connections between solitude and solidarity, he reveals the very heart of the Gospel.""
Gus Gordon has learned from both Jesus and the Buddha how to use solitude to nurture compassion, freeing up the divine energy within to live in solidarity with others, experiencing the peace in life you share with others. This is a very practical book about how to bring high ideals of both great religious founders to your heart.
""Gordons book will speak--and it will speak powerfully--to the many of us who are struggling with the need to be nurtured by solitude and solidarity, action and contemplation, prophecy and mysticism, wisdom and love."" --Paul F. Knitter, Union Theological Seminary, New York

John Keenan's 'The Gospel of Mark' is a radically new reading of this most intriguing of the Synoptic gospels - a remarkable feat in the face of the explosion of Markan scholarship over the last twenty years. Keenan accomplishes this by approaching Mark as no other scholar has done: through the lens of Mahayana-Buddhist philosophy. This view stresses the emptying of all preconceived notions of how to begin reading as well as reclamation of such notions in terms of dependent co-arising and Jesus' assault on the validity of conventional religiosity. 'The Gospel of Mark' displays an alternative hermeneutical procedure, one generated by the Mahayana understanding of the function of text and doctrine, and informed by Mahayana philosophy. Part One of 'The Gospel of Mark' provides an overview of different interpretive techniques in Markan scholarship. It describes and argues for the validity of a Buddhist approach to this charter document of the Christian Gospel. Here the author demonstrates a profound grasp not only of scriptural scholarship but of Mahayana philosophy. Keenan discusses themes such as Mark's elliptical style and the journeying that provides the impetus for the narrative, and explores them through the lens of emptiness and dependent co-arising which are the focal points of a Mahayana reading. In Part Two Keenan gives the reader truly fresh insights into the paradoxical world of Mark's Jesus. Through a Buddhist lens, the text offers startling and new perspectives on Jesus himself, the experience of the Kingdom, miracle stories and parables, the passion and death, the resurrection and return.
