Holy Disruption: Discovering Advent in the Gospel of Mark
Tracy S. Daub
Westminster John Knox, 2022
Where's the baby? The Gospel of Mark doesn't have a nativity story--so where's the Advent message? It's in every aspect of Jesus' life, to his death and beyond.
The Incarnation--God come to earth in human form to be baptized, teach, heal, eat, and die--is what we celebrate at Christmas, and Mark shows us just how radical and celebration-worthy it is!
Holy Disruption presents a fresh understanding of the holiness of Christmas grounded, not in a conventional cozy Christmas message, but through Mark's disquieting gospel which invites its readers to experience God's disruptive but transformative love for us and our world.
