Re-Reading the Gospel of Mark Amidst Loss and Trauma free pdf Reading the Gospel of Mark not as the story of the great works of a powerful, divine man and his triumph over death, but as a response to the social pains and traumas of its historical moment, Kotrosits and Taussig propose the Gospel of Mark as one model for coping with some losses in the present. Placing passages from the gospel alongside films like Fight Club and Man on Wire, the art of Louise Bourgeois, a graphic novel, and other contemporary media, the authors offer an original reading for both scholarly and non-scholarly readers that shines a light on the darker, if also more vibrant, sides of the gospel.
