Mark for everyone

by N. T. Wright

Paper Book, 2001




London : SPCK, 2001.


Tom Wright's eye-opening comments on the Gospel of Mark and what it might mean for us are combined, passage-by-passage, with his fresh translation of the Bible text. Making use of his true scholar's understanding, yet writing in an approachable and anecdotal style, Wright captures the urgency and excitement of Mark's Gospel in a way few writers have. . Tom Wright has undertaken a tremendous task: to provide guides to all the books of the New Testament, and to include in them his own translation of the entire text. Each short passage is followed by a highly readable discussion with background information, useful explanations and suggestions, and thoughts as to how the text can be relevant to our lives today.

Readable, engaging, beneficial. Written for the educated layman. Many will take issue with some of his positions, his "new perspective" on justification being one glaring example.

I really enjoyed this work.

An incredibly helpful commentary by a great theologian. It's amazing how N.T. Wright can take the finest in New Testament scholarship and make it digestible enough that everyone from pastors, teachers to small group leaders can use his material. Mark is another great selection from the Everyone Series.
