Publisher's Summary

This retreat program will inspire and move you.

The Gospel of Mark portrays Christ in action. Now, A Retreat with the Gospel of Mark invites you into active contemplation. This is a perfect program to enjoy alone or with others.

Combining prayerful reflection, careful biblical scholarship, and an engaging presentation style, each conference was studio-recorded by Fr. Felix Just, SJ, one of Now You Know Media's most beloved presenters and an outstanding biblical retreat leader.

Mark's Gospel presents a distinctive portrait of Jesus, emphasizing how Jesus is both the powerful Son of God and the suffering Son of Man. The Markan Jesus directly asks his disciples, "Who do you say that I am?" Reflecting on how you answer this question yourself will help you to grow ever more faithful in your own attempts to follow Jesus in your own life.

This audio retreat program combines an insightful examination of Mark's Gospel with three methods of biblical prayer - reflective meditation, imaginative contemplation, and centering prayer - to help you grow in your relationship with Jesus.

You can use this program to make your own spiritual retreat for individual prayer and reflection or in small-group settings with opportunities for communal prayer and sharing. If you wish to grow closer to Jesus by spending some prayerful time with the sacred Scriptures, you will cherish this series.

False Advertising

You will sometimes hear the narrator say things like "This audiobook, exclusively available from Audible, includes a written guide." But, this is false. While many Audible books (including others from Felix Just) do have written guides, I believe that Audible should not be falsely advertising like this.

Spiritually edifying

Among the many Learn25 bible and retreat presenters, Fr. Just is my favorite. He combines deep knowledge of the New Testament with a rock-solid faith and a love for teaching. Unlike his 36-lecture New Testament course, this is a spiritual retreat. Thus, he offers up Mark's Gospel and its portrait of Jesus as a model and basis for prayer and spiritual renewal. If you expecting a purely educational course, I suggest you turn to his New Testament survey course. But if you are looking for something spiritually rich to incorporate into your drive or exercise time, I highly recommend this series.
