Mark's Story
Dr. Marvin G. Baker
Illustrated by Paul S. Trittin

      Dr. Baker presents the story of Jesus as seen through the eyes of his disciple, Mark.

     The illustrations put Jesus and the other historical Biblical characters in modern dress and using modern language and a conversational style, Baker challenges readers to imagine the story taking place today in their own neighborhoods.

     The story begins with Mark telling about his first meeting with Jesus and continuing through the crucifixion and resurrection. The narration style by Mark gives the story a "here and now" feel. Christian teachers and parents will find this rendition of the gospels to be a priceless resource for boosting children's interest and making the story of Jesus Christ real to them.
