The Gospel According to Mark: Meaning and Message
The Gospel According to Mark: Meaning and Message closely examines what Mark's words meant when he wrote them, with an eye toward their meaning for readers today. George Martin, a noted writer and editor of popular scripture material, brings a lifetime of scholarship and study to his task. At the heart of his book is a verse-by-verse exposition of the New American Bible text of Mark's Gospel. Interspersed throughout the text are dozens of short essays giving the social, political, economic, and religious background fo the gospel Also included are questions "for reflection" that point to ways the reader might apply the text.
