Meda Stamper is a minister in the Presbyterian Church (USA) and has served as a pastor in the United Reformed Church in England. She has performed one-woman recitals of the Gospels of Mark and John, and has written for the Journal for Preachers, WorkingPreacher.org, and the acclaimed Feasting on the Word series, published by WJK.
"Meda Stamper has the mind of a scholar and the heart of a pastor. She uses words with passion and skill, and unfolds the Gospel of Mark as abundant good news - for those whom Jesus met, and for all who reflect on his story today. This small book leads us deep into the Gospel text, and far along the Christian way. I commend it with conviction and delight." The Revd John Proctor, General Secretary of the United Reformed Church "This book offers an opportunity for refreshment and re-engagement with the good news of Mark. It includes many exciting and imaginative suggestions for meditative prayer, using memory and body posture, drama and artistic expression. The reflections are poetic, inspiring and informative, and the prayer techniques would appeal to many different types of people. I would definitely use it in small groups or on retreat because it enables each and every person to access these life-giving words in his or her own way." The Revd Sue Wallace, Canon Precentor and Sacrist of Winchester Cathedral
