Editorial Reviews

Review

"A review of this length cannot give sufficient coverage to such a rich volume of essays which covers so much territory, allows for so many different voices, attitudes and approaches, and raises so many issues. The authors display immense learning in dealing with their topics. I would consider the essay by Robinson to be a "classic" and it should gain its place on the required reading list of anyone interested in the study of early Islamic history. Berg is to be thanked for his work at bringing these essays together, his translation of the Muranyi text and his charitable attitude towards Motzki's criticisms. All those points are the mark of a real scholar." - Studies in Religion, Andrew Rippin, University of Victoria

Book Description

Peter Bolt explores the impact of Mark's Gospel on its early readers in the first-century Graeco-Roman world. Focusing upon the thirteen characters in Mark who come to Jesus for healing or exorcism and, using analytical tools of narrative and reader-response criticism, he explores their crucial role in the communication of the Gospel. Enlisting a variety of ancient literary and non-literary sources, this book brings to life this first-century world of illness, magic and Roman imperialism. This new approach to Mark combines reader-response criticism with social history.
