Binding the Strong Man: by Ched Myers
Author: Ched Myers
|Binding the Strong Man: A Political Reading of Mark's Story of Jesus (Anniversary) |
This is, quite simply, the most important commentary on a book of Scripture since Barths Romans.
Walter Wink, Christian Century
Bound to become a classic in the field of gospel studies. . . Ched Myers has produced a commentary that is potentially as revolutionary as the very gospel account it portrays.
Myers has produced a commanding and coherent political commentary on the Gospel of Mark, distinguished in its grasp of biblical and social scientific scholarship and amazingly lucid in its style and argument. . . A cogent and venturesome biblical embodiment of liberation theology.
Norman K. Gottwald
Since its publication in 1988, Binding the Strong Man has been widely recognized as a landmark in contemporary biblical criticism. Applying a multidisciplinary approach called socio-literary method, Myers integrates literary criticism, socio-historical exegesis, and political hermeneutics in his investigation of Mark as a manifesto of radical discipleship.
Ched Myers, a writer, educator, and theological animator, is the author of several books, including Who Will Roll Away the Stone? and Say to This Mountain. He has taught at many theological schools in North America and works with Bartimaeus Cooperative Ministries, where he focuses on building biblical literacy, church renewal, and faith-based witness for justice.
