Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins pair up once again for the next book in The Jesus Chronicles titled Mark’s Story. Taking the well known stories of Mark, 1 and 2 Peter, and historical accounts, the two authors add their own twists and plots to the story of the early Christians. Readers follow Mark from his first encounter of Jesus at the Upper Room to his final encounter with Peter, just before Peter’s execution. In the process, they learn about the last days of Jesus, as well as the earliest accounts of persecution against Christians.
As a young boy, Mark admires Peter and tries to glean any knowledge he can from the disciple. When his mother instructs him to carry a pitcher as a way of leading Jesus’ disciples to his home, Mark has no idea what will happen in the following days. Still harboring questions about Jesus’ authority and trustworthiness, Mark follows instructions. When Jesus and His disciples have the Last Supper at his home, however, Mark listens with wonder to Jesus’ words. What happens in that room lights a path for Mark that will lead to his growth as a person, Christian, and, ultimately, missionary. As he witnesses the crucifixion and the events following it, Mark realizes he can’t deny the truth any longer, and his desire to follow in Christ’s footsteps takes him on a journey with famous apostles and missionaries of the Bible including Paul, Barnabas, and Peter. As Nero begins persecuting the Christians, however, will Mark be able to continue in the example of his elders, preaching Christ to his last breath?« less
