Item description for Commentary-Mark V1 (Preaching The Word) by R. Kent Hughes...
Overview Brings new relevance to the book of Mark. Excellent reference for personal Bible study or sermon preparation. Practical, anecdotal style.
In our age of aggressive evil and apathetic faith, the Gospel of Mark resounds with the dynamic power of the Lord Jesus Christ. Perhaps the most dramatic and action-packed of the synoptic Gospels, Mark's writing continues to inspire increased commitment in the Church at large.
Mark's portrayal of Christ as the Servant-Savior takes on fresh relevance in these masterful expositions by respected pastor/author R. Kent Hughes. With careful exegesis, the author draws from the text many practical lessons for everyday living and effective ministry. His numerous illustrations reflect wide interests, extensive reading, and years of experience pastoring and counseling those who seek to know Christ and walk in his ways.
This first volume covers Mark 1:1-9:1, the main part of Jesus' teaching and healing ministry. As the Messiah confronts evil spirits, heals the helpless, and challenges the orthodox, a final conflict with the religious establishment becomes inevitable--and we, like the ancient world, must decide if we will acknowledge him as our Lord and Savior.
Those who preach, teach, and study will find this book a gold mine of helpful information. With divisions and outlines that are never forced, but flow naturally from the text, Mark will be a great boon to those charged with communicating the Word, and to all who seek to grow in their faith through personal Bible study. Part of the Preaching the Word series.

Reviews - What do customers think about Commentary-Mark V1 (Preaching The Word)?
Great Homeletical Guide Jan 3, 2007
I am currently preaching through Mark and Kent Hughes' book is a great "final resource" after my exegesis is complete. I have used several of his illustrations and many times, he has confirmed that I am keeping the "main thing the main thing" from the text in my sermons. Don't get me wrong, this is not JUST for Preachers. It is a great non-technical commentary. For serious study, I suggest pairing this book with W. Lane's "Gospel of Mark" in the NICNT series.
Kent Hughes books Sep 27, 2005
I have bought six or eight of Kent Hughes books, including the two on Mark. His books are adapted from sermons he has preached and are a very good combination of scripture, comments and meaningful illustrations. I use his books to help me prepare to teach Sunday School lessons. I have not bought any other pastors books for this purpose, so you can see that I think very highly of Kent Hughes writings.
