Now in paperback, this commentary combines the highest-level scholarship with pastoral sensitivity. It offers an accessible and thoughtful reading of Mark's narrative to bring the Gospel's story to life for contemporary readers" -- Publisher description

Mark : storyteller, interpreter, evangelist by Francis J Moloney( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The earliest and briefest of the four Gospels has traditionally been ascribed to a disciple named Mark. Though overshadowed by its lengthier neighbors in ages past, its pages hold rich rewards for those who ask the right questions. Who was "Mark" and what were his purposes - historical, theological, or otherwise? How does his shaping of the story of Jesus of Nazareth and the origins of Christianity continue to inform our understanding of the "good news" today?" "In Mark: Storyteller, Interpreter, Evangelist, biblical scholar Francis J. Moloney explores these questions in a presentation that will profit all those who wish to encounter one of the Christian faith's earliest proponents and the inventor of its most revered literary genre, the gospel."--Jacket

Love in the gospel of John : an exegetical, theological, and literary study by Francis J Moloney( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The command to love is central to the Gospel of John. Internationally respected scholar Francis Moloney offers a thorough exploration of this theme, focusing not only on Jesus's words but also on his actions. Instead of merely telling people that they must love one another, Jesus acts to make God's love known and calls all who follow him to do the same. This capstone work on John's Gospel uses a narrative approach to delve deeply into a theme at the heart of the Fourth Gospel and the life of the Christian church. Uniting rigorous exegesis with theological and pastoral insight, it makes a substantive contribution to contemporary Johannine scholarship" -- Publisher description

"A hard saying" : the Gospel and culture by Francis J Moloney( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""A Hard Saying": The Gospel and Culture examines how the Christian Churches inevitably domesticate the message of the Gospel as they shape their own cultures and how the Gospel always acts as a "thorn in the side" to such domestication. Studies of the gospel message on women, discipleship, marriage and celibacy, literary criticism, the Eucharist, health care, resurrection, and the Spirit, allow the living voice of the Gospel to be heard."--Jacket

The resurrection of the Messiah : a narrative commentary on the Resurrection accounts in the four gospels by Francis J Moloney( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Taking inspiration from a different interpretative tradition, the classic work of Raymond Brown on the birth and death of the Messiah, Francis Moloney has provided a comprehensive narrative reading of the resurrection stories of all four Gospels, in close association with their passion narratives, to which they are the stunning response. The book traces how the four evangelists' different telling of the resurrection stories has "narrated" the action of God for Jesus, and the action of God and Jesus for all Christians in and through the early Church's belief and experience of the resurrection of Jesus. The final chapter discusses what we can recover about the events of Easter day and, more importantly, what these events meant then, and continue to mean today." - back cover
