    Download the Complete 8 Volume set of "The Gospel According to Mark"

    Mark’s Gospel emphasizes the certainty that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and the fulfillment of God’s purpose. Attributed to John Mark, a contemporary of the disciple Peter, this Gospel is identified as Peter’s first-hand account of life with Jesus.

Thanks to his trademark focus on both the individual person and Scripture, one never feels they are reading a counseling-medical textbook, but rather an accessible and biblical theology of addictions. People are never abstract in his thinking, but are real souls in a real world with real struggles. Welch brings the full weight of Scripture to bear on his topic without ever reducing either the person or Scripture itself. No small task!

    Delegation is a wonderful thing—but what about abdication? What if we assign away our responsibilities?
