In this study of the Gospel of Mark, Dr. Ogilvie presents principles of abundant living in Jesus Christ. It was researched and written on the campus of the University of Edinburgh where he did his graduate work years ago. The essential thread of the book can be found on page 34 when he writes "the pervading purpose of our lives is to become involved in creative relationships to mediate grace to others." In the next sentence he adds, "Communication of hope to individuals is the calling given to every Christian." From there he goes on to discuss the teachings of Jesus and the incidents recorded in the book of Mark. In talking about faith, he notes "When we dare to pray for his vision and attempt it by his power, that's when the adventure begins" (p. 109). On leadership, he observes, "Every leader must learn how to implement his vision without threats of force, authoritarianism, or loss of livelihood" (p. 129). A segment of the book addresses the necessity of rest. Ogilvie says it is vital to productivity. He talks about the practical application these principles have had in the work of his church members in Los Angeles, California. Meeting with other believers is not meant to be a ritual, religious exercise. On the contrary, he says "The fellowship of God's people is meant to be therapeutic" (p. 204). This is a positive book about a "life without limits."
