Item description for Mark: A Guide for Reflection and Prayer (Daily Bible Commentary) by Dick France...
Overview Mark is the shortest of the four gospels, yet it is the most vividly told. Mark writes of eager crowds and impressive miracles, of dramatic confrontation with opponents both human and demonic. Time and again he recounts how Jesus left his disciples bewildered as their world was turned upside-down by the revolutionary values of God's kingdom. Scholars today consider Mark to be the earliest record of the life and teaching of Jesus of Nazareth. Studying this gospel reveals what a well-written story it is as it builds toward the final showdown in Jerusalem, where the cosmic drama of death and resurrection is played out.
Publishers Description The Daily Bible Commentary is systematic and rich in research, yet devotional and reflective in tone. It is perfect for preachers, lay people, teachers, ministers in training, students? and anyone who wants to understand the Bible better and draw closer to God on a daily basis.
