Exploring Mark, Finding Jesus is an introduction for international students and scholars (and others who may have little Bible background) about how to study the Bible. It covers the whole Gospel According to Mark. The 29 studies include discussion questions, vocabulary, background information, color photos, a timeline of events, maps, and leader’s notes. Discussions were tested with students for years, so answers to many common questions are already included in the vocabulary and comments parallel with each Bible passage or in the leader's notes in the back.

- “My international friend really likes the Jesus she sees in Mark’s Gospel.”
- “An Asian grad student said, ‘I like Jesus. He is so different. I am always happy when we meet for this discussion.’
- “Seeing how Jesus can read our hearts and thoughts compels us to trust him and his perfect plan.”
