David Suchet set to read the whole of Mark’s Gospel aloud at St Paul’s Cathedral

David Suchet, one of the best-known and best-loved actors of his generation will be reading the entire Gospel of Mark at St Paul’s Cathedral.

The event will take place just before Holy Week on the evening of Tuesday 28th March.

The evening will be a dramatic reading of the Gospel, without commentary.

The actor has worked for the RSC, in the West End and on Broadway, his most famous role is Hercule Poirot in the long-running television series. In 2011 he was awarded a CBE for services to drama, and in 2014 was given a lifetime achievement award by the Royal Television Society for his performance as Poirot. He will also be seen in the new series of Doctor Who airing in the spring.

Raised without a faith, he became a Christian after reading Romans 8 in a hotel Bible. Now a practising Anglican, he has made highly successful BBC documentary series following in the footsteps of St Paul and St Peter. He is Vice-President of the Bible Society and his best-selling audio book of the Bible, released in 2014 by Hodder, fulfilled a 27-year ambition.

The Complete NIV Audio Bible: Read by David Suchet has sold over 25,000 copies across the MP3 CD, MP3 downloads and app formats. David explains why he undertook the mammoth task of recording of the whole Bible here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fIRaC7jlvE0
