Reviews - What do customers think about Commentary-Mark (Zondervan Illustrated Background)?

A thorough commentary - Well worth sticking at.  Nov 20, 2003
I am very glad I read this book. While I found it hard to get into, once I was past the first few sections I couldn't put it down. His strongest section is where he explores the trial and crucifixion of Jesus. David Garland challenges any romanticised pre-conceptions that the reader may have about the crucifixion and explores without apology the uncomfortable things about this gospel: the total failure of the disciples, that Jesus' last recorded words are "My God my God why have you forsaken me?" and the lack of appearance of the risen Christ (he stops at 16:8). I gained insight on a new angle on the death of Christ. I recommend this book to anyone interested in Mark or Jesus mission.
