Item description for The Gospel of Mark: A Commentary by Francis J. Moloney...

Seeking to encourage an early Christian community discouraged by failure, Mark's gospel presents Jesus as the suffering Son of God. Moloney's commentary blends traditional scholarship with contemporary narrative insights to illuminate the text for both scholars and laypeople. Exploring the Gospel's language, structure and theology, he addresses difficult passages and provides helpful footnotes that clarify current debates.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Gospel of Mark: A Commentary?

Good semi-technical work  Oct 11, 2006
This commentary is neither overly technical, nor superficially 'spiritual.' Moloney describes the technical arguments in non-technical language. He focuses on literary interpretation of the text. It could be a very useful textbook for students who are getting introduced to academic analysis but don't want to be overwhelmed by it. There are ample footnotes pointed to the literature for those who want to dig deeper. He has a brief introductory essay discussing the usual suspects: author, place of origin, etc. His view on the location is well done: if we didn't have the tradition of Roman authorship, there is not very much in the text that would suggest that location - while at the same time, there is so little evidence that it can't be ruled out.
great book!  Mar 24, 2006
we are using this as a textbook in my master's level class and it is great! i would recommend to anyone, as it's not overly scholarly or technical, but it does move past the devotional and inspirational so commonly in use these days.
