Technical book on Mark's use of Isaian motifs. Excellent treatment of Mark 9:11-13 As an armchair student of theology I found the book concentrated heavily on the proving or disproving of hypotheses. Although the book is excellent in its intent; to demonstrate the Isaian motifs found throughout the gospel of Mark, acting as its backbone, I consider this book to be beyond the average pastor range of study for every Sunday. Having said this, I used this book to gain a deeper appreciation of Mark's use of not only Isaiah, but a conflation of Psalms in various passages! It therefore needs two separate scores. For the layman 3.5 oo 5 For the "Serious" student 4.5 oo 5
