Robertson Dean provides this creative account of the Gospel of Mark with a dynamic vocal range. He gives full attention to fictionalized details, such as Mark's leadership of the church in Alexandria and his healing of an injured man. Even though the story doesn't adhere to the biblical accounts, Dean provides a seamless narration. With poignancy he captures the eager spirit of the young apostle who offers to document Jesus's and the disciples' travels if he can only go with them. Dean's understated portrayal of his disappointment when he's told he must wait until he's older sounds genuine. Dean's delivery of this fictionalized biblical narrative gives an authentic sense of the culture of that time. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
