This new Pillar volume offers exceptional commentary on Mark that 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.
Written by a biblical scholar who has devoted thirty years to the study of the second Gospel, this commentary aims primarily to interpret the Gospel of Mark according to its theological intentions and purposes, especially as they relate to the life and ministry of Jesus and the call to faith and discipleship. Unique features of James Edwards' approach include clear descriptions of key terms used by Mark and revealing discussion of the Gospel's literary features, including Mark's use of the "sandwich" technique and of imagistic motifs and irony. Edwards 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. 578 pages, from Eerdmans.
James R. Edwards (Ph.D., Fuller Theological Seminary) is an award winning Bruner-Welch Professor of Theology, and Department Chair at Whitworth University, Spokane, WA. He is an ordained minister, PCUSA, contributing editor of Christianity Today, and the author of the award winning Is Jesus the Only Savior? and The Gospel of Mark (Pillar Bible Commentary); Romans (New International Bible Commentary) The Divine Intruder and most recently The Hebrew Gospel and the Development of the Synoptic Tradition.
