C. Christopher Epting
The Rt. Rev. C. Christopher Epting is a bishop in the Episcopal Church. After serving as a priest in both urban and rural communities for over twenty years, he was elected the Bishop of Iowa in 1988. He was the episcopal pastor of this community for more than a decade before being called by the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church to represent the church as its Ecumenical and Interfaith representative.
From 2001 through almost another ten years he travelled widely, meeting with faith leaders around the world to build new bridges of understanding and cooperation. He was instrumental in crafting an agreement that led to full communion between the Episcopal Church and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. It was during a sabbatical at St. George’s College in Jerusalem that he began writing the book that was to become JOHN MARK.

Excerpt from John Mark:
" As the waters of the Jordan closed in over his face, he felt that part of him was dying and being buried forever. Forever left behind him, drowned in that green water. But as John brought him up through the river's surface it was as it the waters above the firmament, as well as the waters below, were torn apart. It was as if that spirit which had once swept over the face of the primal waters now resided upon and within him. From deep within him, or from somewhere far away, he sensed a kinship, a oneness with the source of that spirit, the kind of convergence which says, "You are part of all this...your are one with all this...you have a special role to play in all this.You are precious. You are mine. "
