Mark: A Commentary

432 pages6 hours


This commentary on the Gospel of Mark has a unique flavor. This comes from the fact that it is a layperson's commentary, written with scholarship that is 'hidden' in a conversational style. It is a devotional, reflective discussion about the Gospel of Mark. It will ruffle your feathers in places, as it asks the hard questions that one feels compelled to ask as you read the words of Jesus and reflect on his actions as well. Jim Reiher seeks to be honest and open as he reflects on each story and teaching in this Gospel. There have been a lot of books written on Mark, but this one, from an Australian Biblical scholar with a devotional emphasis, will prove to be most popular with those who use it. This book will be great for small study groups as well: the "Food for Thought" reflections after each main story or teaching block, bring the gospel into our own culture and times and cause us to ponder on how it can be applied in our context.
