The in-depth study of The Healing of a Boy with an Unclean Spirit (Mk 9:14-29) by Dr. James Kadankavil offers fresh and new insights into Sacred Scripture. His thorough knowledge of Greek has enabled him to effectively expound the Markan narrative. A choice bibliography and extensive footnotes further enriches this work of excellence. This volume contains invaluable information on miracles and exorcisms to which Jesus dedicated much of his public ministry. By comparing this story with the parallel narratives in Matthew and Luke, the author highlights the Markan distinctiveness of exorcism. The readers are given also a panoramic view of the entire Gospel of Mark. After depicting the bewildering and paradoxical attitude of the crowds – often enthusiastic towards Jesus’ proclamation but also hostile at times – Kadankavil brings into relief the non-negotiable elements of true Christian discipleship. This relevant and groundbreaking contribution to understanding exorcism and discipleship is highly recommended for scholars and amateurs alike.
