Written by a biblical scholar who has devoted thirty years to the study of Mark, this exceptional and unique new Pillar volume clearly shows the second Gospel - though it was a product of the earliest Christian community - to be both relevant and sorely needed in today's church. Edwards offers revealing discussion of the Gospel's literary features, including Mark's use of the "sandwich" technique and of imagistic motifs and irony. He also proposes a new paradigm for interpreting the difficult "Little Apocalypse" of chapter 13, and he argues for a new understanding of Mark's controversial ending.

The General Acceptance of Markan priority in the nineteenth century directed unprecedented attention on the Gospel of Mark from both academy and church. No longer was the second Gospel viewed as an inferior abridgment of Matthew; rather, its author was seen as the first to write the story of Jesus in the form of a Gospel, which became the primary influence on the subsequent Gospels of Matthew and Luke.
