Mark's Story opens on the evening of the last day of Jesus as man. The young Mark hears Jesus' prophecies of the events that are to come, and bears witness to some of the most pivotal events in human history, including Judas Iscariot's betrayal, Peter's denial of his Master, and Jesus' crucifixion, and resurrection as the risen Lord.

In the years after, following in the footsteps of his friend and mentor Peter, Mark becomes an ardent follower of Jesus and a devoted disciple of Christianity, spreading the Word beyond Jerusalem and into the world. Mark urges Peter to recount to him the stories of Jesus' life on Earth, His messages, His miracles, and His everlasting promises to His people, and compiles what becomes canonized as the Gospel of Mark.

Mark chronicles the growth of the early Christian church, the struggles of Jesus' followers, and the persecution they endured from a hostile world. Mark's Story is a thrilling account that vividly depicts the last day before Jesus' crucifixion and the danger that early believers faced as they boldly proclaimed Jesus as Christ the Lord. Their bravery laid the foundation for the early church, and their fervent passion for the Word reverberates throughout the world today. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " very good, teaches a lot about the book of Mark and other, in the Bible but more interesting to read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 2/19/2014

    " Not as shallow as John's Story, but it still could have contained more meat. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dempse Kb | 2/17/2014

    " Not as good as Luke's story or Matthew's story. Mark started out as a teen and never matured beyond that. He follows the life of Peter, and we even meet his wife! It starts with the Last Supper where Mark is the son of the woman who own's the house they ate at. He follows Jesus into the Garden of gethsemane, the early attacks of the Christians in Rome including Nero's circus. So pretty interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Margaret | 2/14/2014

    " Not particularly spell-binding reading, but the story was familiar and important. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberly Lindsey | 2/6/2014

    " riveting... loved every word nof it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yvonne | 1/12/2014

    " After picking up Matthew's Story on a whim at the library could not wait to get the other Gospels. Mark story was intrigueging. To be able to write a lenghy novel on characters with limited background and do a pretty good job. I think is wonderful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bettie | 12/31/2013

    " Very quick reading. This book is very close to the gospel. Characters are not highly developed in some case, but still a good read, "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jonathan | 12/27/2013

    " Worth reading. An interesting take on Mark's life from Passion Week to just beyond Peter's death. A lot of Scripture used in unique ways. Not LaHaye/Jenkins' best work (almost seems ghost written it's so different) but I did pick up some thoughts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber Skantz | 12/24/2013

    " Interesting read, especially in the beginning when John Mark was a teenager. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat Baratta | 12/19/2013

    " Interesting reading. Discovered, reading this book, that when Jesus sent his aposels out to find a room for The Last Supper, it as Mark's mothers house they used. Mark help serve the last supper. He was a young boy at the time. So his ministery occured after Jesus died. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindyanne | 12/17/2013

    " Gave insight into the feelings of the disciples surrounding the death and resurrection of Christ. It fleshes them out with a human depth not really found in the Bible, which you come to appreciate so you can learn more about them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dru | 12/6/2013

    " This is a great book if you want to get an idea of how the books in the New Testaments came to be- it's not nonfiction, but it does make it come alive in one's head. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dianna | 11/4/2013

    " Well written and imaginative. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jodi | 10/31/2013

    " very long, boring story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie Reed | 10/28/2013

    " enjoyed this perspective of the story of Christ taken from the book of Mark. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 10/4/2013

    " It was very interesting to see Mark portrayed as first the hated tax collector, then as Peter's beloved companion. It made reading the writings of Mark much more emotionally charged. I very much recommend this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shari | 10/3/2013

    " It was a good book, but slow moving at times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kel | 4/24/2013

    " I loved the story of Luke. I have John's Story waiting in the wings. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen Meacham | 5/21/2012

    " A very interesting perspective from John Mark whose family owned the upper room. The story told by him and then followed by the book of Mark, 1st & 2nd Peter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick Lawton | 1/10/2012

    " I loved this story! Such a compelling opinion storytelling on what may have happened following Christ's crucifixion, told through the eyes of the men who followed him. A very good series from these two gentlemen following Left Behind! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 10/23/2011

    " liked the idea of hearing the everyday story behind the gospel, yes I do know that it is all fiction "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rod | 10/6/2011

    " This is my favourite of the Gospels redone. I wonder what some Biblical scholars would think of these fleshed out fictional accounts of the gospel writers? They sure are fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 8/25/2011

    " Very, very good book! The story behind the fiction is by itself awesome, but Tim LaHaye added a little flavor, and made it more understandable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tobi | 6/11/2011

    " Very good--there are 2 more coming: Luke and Matthew "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindyanne | 4/15/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 1/4/2011

    " I really liked two of the others, this one just wasn't quite as good. I'm not sure why, maybe just my mood or what I don't know. It was good, just not as great as the others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miriam | 12/21/2010

    " This book ended with the details of Peter, Paul and Marks deaths. I was overwhelmed with sadness at what these disciples went through for the cause of Christ and God's Glory, particularly in comparison to today's world. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Denise | 11/27/2010

    " I found this book totally confusing and difficult to read. I kept putting it down and forcing myself to pick it up again a few days later. I loved the other two in the series and can’t really pinpoint why this one didn’t really jive with me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bettie | 10/20/2010

    " Very quick reading. This book is very close to the gospel. Characters are not highly developed in some case, but still a good read, "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Crystal | 10/5/2010

    " It could have been so much better, right? Seems rushed and unfilled. We know the story already so it was hard for me to get into it but if the guys are going to "fill in the blanks" with a novel then please fill in the blanks! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 8/11/2010
