From the Back Cover

Expert help for understanding the Bible

Each volume in the Understanding the Bible Commentary Series breaks down the barriers between the ancient and modern worlds so that the power and meaning of the biblical texts become transparent to contemporary readers. They present a careful section-by-section exposition of the biblical books with key terms and phrases highlighted and all Greek transliterated. Notes at the close of each chapter provide additional textual and technical comments for those who want to dig deeper. A bibliography as well as Scripture and subject indexes are also included. Pastors, students, and Bible teachers will find in this series a commitment to accessibility without sacrificing serious scholarship.

This volume transports modern readers back to the days of Mark's original audience and helps us to understand and apply his unique writing and challenges to the church. Very possibly the oldest written account of the ministry of Jesus that we possess, the Gospel of Mark is a vivid and fast-paced narrative of the Good News about Jesus.

Format: Paperback
Larry Hurtado is one of the world's foremost scholars of early Christianity and textual matters related to its primary sources.

This commentary on Mark's Gospel certainly fits the bill if you are looking for a commentary that is reasonably short, doesn't require knowledge of Greek, but is substantial in its depth of treatment.

This work, as Prof. Hurtado concedes, is a brief on introductory matters. It should be supplemented by the standard introductions of Carson & Moo, Guthrie and Brown.
