Product Description:

Evan's conclusion to the two volume treatment of the Gospel of Mark begun by Robert Guelich evidences the same high level of scholarship and sensitivity to the text that we saw in the first volume. However, Evans has his own emphases and so offers a helpful 60-page introduction for readers who may be unfamiliar with Synoptic or Markan research. He addresses a broad range of subjects including Mark's history, theology, and purpose. The commentary proper follows the standard WBC format. For each section of text, Evans provides own translation with explanatory notes, an extensive bibliography of relevant scholarship, discussion of form-critical issues, line-by-line commentary of the Greek text, and a concluding explanation that sums up the teaching of the passage. Whether interacting with critical scholarship, or providing simpler exposition, Evans' commitment to both solid evangelical research and the authority of Scripture are clear. Evans' volume will prove a helpful addition to the library of serious students of Scripture and provides insights into the text and a starting point for continued study of Mark's Gospel. - Jeff Waddington - Westminster Bookstore Staff
