"Balanced in judgment and offering numerous astute observations, this work should prove highly useful, especially to serious readers seeking a reliable introduction and companion for their study of Mark's account of Jesus's ministry."--Larry W. Hurtado, New College, University of Edinburgh
In this addition to the well-received Paideia series, Mary Ann Beavis examines cultural context and theological meaning in Mark. Students, pastors, and other readers will appreciate the insights that Beavis derives from interrogating the text through multiple perspectives.
