This reading of Mark's Gospel engages this ancient text from the perspective of contemporary feminist concerns to expose and resist all forms of domination that prevent the full flourishing of all humans and all creation. Accordingly, it foregrounds the Gospel's constructions of gender in intersectionality with the visions, structures, practices, and personnel of Roman imperial power. This reading embraces a rich tradition of feminist scholarship on the Gospel, as well as masculinity studies, particularly pervasive hegemonic masculinity. Its politically engaged discussion of Mark's Gospel provides a resource for clergy, students, and laity concerned with contemporary constructions of gender, power, and a world in which all might experience fullness of life.

Warren Carter is the LaDonna Kramer Meinders Professor of New Testament at Phillips Theological Seminary in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He is the author of eighteen books and is a regular presenter at scholarly conferences and in church contexts.

"Carter's thoughtful and nuanced interpretation of the Gospel of Mark is a welcome addition to the distinctive Wisdom Commentary series. Reading the Gospel alongside recent insights from both masculinity studies and feminist scholarship, Carter ensures a fresh consideration at this ancient text. The reader will profit from the author's deep expertise on life under Roman imperial rule combined with his sensitive intersectional analysis of the Gospel."
Colleen M. Conway, Professor of Religious Studies, Seton Hall University
