Details

David Urion, a pediatric neurologist, contemplates the miraculous healings in the Gospel of Mark as subversive political acts of power that restore the wholeness of the community. The kingdom of God that is at hand is just this: the poor, the sick, the outcaste. Their integration into the community restores creation to the radical inclusiveness with which it began and that heals us all.
