Publisher's Summary

The Gospel of Mark: Juliet Stevenson reads St Mark's account of the life and teachings of Jesus. Specially composed music is included. The readings were part of BBC Radio 4's series of 341 daily episodes of the Bible, broadcast in 1991 and 1992. Abridged by Michael Jones.

The New Testament: These abridged readings of the New Testament are taken from the 1989 Revised English Bible, which was translated directly from the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek into modern English to produce a Bible that was at once accessible and authoritative.

I listen to this over and over again!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. The Gospel of Mark is a very accessible account of the life of Jesus Christ. Easy to follow and understand.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jesus. It's his story.

What does Juliet Stevenson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Listening to Juliet Stevenson's reading is like hearing the story for the first time. She is precise in expressing the tenor of each passage. She brings every character to life. She does not inflect a judgmental perspective that many readers automatically assume is there. She's very easy to listen to.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I wanted to listen to it over and over again. It was very calming and insightful.

Any additional comments?

Best audio version of the Gospel of Mark out there!

Juliet Stevenson's narration is perfect!

Which character – as performed by Juliet Stevenson – was your favorite?

Jesus of course. It's his story.

Any additional comments?

I'm mostly here to praise the narrator. Her voice is majestic and soothing at the same time: I could listen to this over and over again.
