John Cunyus's translation of Mark helps the reader see the ancient Gospel from a fresh perspective. Though I enjoyed the text of the translation itself, what I found even more useful were the footnotes. The footnotes contained some great cross references to many Old Testament texts, which helped this New Testament Gospel make more sense. I also liked the explanation of some of the Greek terms that were in the footnotes. For example, I never realized that "disciples" only became "apostles" when they "were sent" but Cunyus points that out in a footnote and it changes ones perspective on what disciples are as opposed to apostles.
I appreciated the fact that Cunyus steered clear of inserting his personal opinions into the text. He simply translated it and highlighted appropriate cross references or Greek definitions. In today's overly politicized academic world, that was refreshing in and of itself.
I also appreciated some of the "front matter." In particular, I like the suggestions for ways to use the book. I think most authors just expect the reader to read it. But Cunyus has far more in mind and I liked his practical ideas for ways to use this book for more than just reading.
