Item description for The Gospel of Mark: Interpreting Biblical Texts Series (Interpreting Biblical Texts) by Donald H. Juel...

If you're looking for non-technical, easy-to read commentaries that effectively open up the meaning of Scripture, you'll appreciate the Interpreting Biblical Texts series. Written for laypeople, as well as scholars, each volume clearly presents the main points of the ancient texts for modern readers. In the newest edition, The Gospel of Mark, Donald Juel explores the remarkable story of what many believe to be the first gospel that was written.

Publishers Description

This volume is written for anyone who--for whatever reason--is drawn to the New Testament. It is also for those who are not so drawn, for it is written out of the conviction that good readers need to be formed. Anyone can read the Bible; no particular level of education is required, but readers need to learn what to look for in stories that may seem distant and strange. The long tradition of reading the Scriptures in the church is not the enemy in such an enterprise, but audiences change, and the Bible must be heard and wrestled with in each new situation.

This volume focuses on the Gospel according to Mark, probably the first of the four Gospels to be written. It has received the least attention of the four in the history of the church. The explosion of Markan scholarship in the last decades tells a fascinating story that is not the focus of this study but informs it. The result of intense engagement with Mark within and outside the academic community has not achieved a meeting of the minds. Mark s Gospel does not easily yield its secrets. It is the case, however, that conversing about Mark has been enormously interesting and productive for the church as well as the academy. This volume is written to open readers to its remarkable story. Where engagement will finally lead remains as unpredictable and as promising as the Gospel itself."

Reviews - What do customers think about Interpreting Biblical Texts Series - Gospel of Mark?  Jul 5, 2000
Proffessor of NT theology at Princeton, Donald Juel gives us a basic introduction to the Markan gospel and its issues. His style is clear and verbose. And it is a real shame that the work is so small and not a verse by verse commentary. The format is topical and the tone is popular.

I found myself in agreement with most of his conclusions. You might be better off purchasing this work in the used section.
