The Assistant Bishop of Newcastle writes:
Many people in this diocese will have heard Richard Ferguson recite St. Marks’ Gospel. In learning this important work by heart, Richard gained a number of insights into the author’s mind and purpose in writing, as well as fresh understanding of the meaning of Christ’s life and teaching. In this book (and accompanying CDs) Richard offers us a translation of Mark, a recording of his own recital, and his comments on the text. I warmly recommend this to both individuals and groups for use in both prayer and study.
The Bishop of Newcastle writes:
“Rocks and Breakers” is the fruit of a lifetime’s devotion, study and prayer by one of the Church of England’s faithful and dedicated parish priests. Richard Ferguson’s excitement and enthusiasm for St. Mark’s Gospel shines throughout the book, with its accompanying CDs, and will enable the Gospel to be heard and read in new and illuminating ways.
