Endorsements

"Robert H. Stein has composed an excellent commentary on Mark 1:1-16:8. He explains well the purpose and structure of the Gospel, discusses in detail its problematic verses, judiciously selects views of other commentators, and explains why he thinks the Gospel ends at 16:8. Hence Stein's commentary will be a precious vade mecum for pastors and preachers, students of the New Testament, and teachers in biblical studies."--Joseph A. Fitzmyer, SJ, professor emeritus, biblical studies, Catholic University of America, Washington, DC

"Bob Stein has written a great commentary on the Gospel of Mark. It is rich with interpretive insight, yet it is very reader friendly. Scholars, pastors, students, and lay readers will appreciate how Stein tackles difficult questions head-on and presents sensible solutions. Reading this commentary gives the reader a real sense of what the evangelist Mark was trying to say and how his original readers would have understood him. It makes an excellent contribution to the BECNT series."--Craig A. Evans, Payzant Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Acadia Divinity College, Nova Scotia

"This comprehensive commentary is the seasoned work of a first-rate, evangelical scholar. The discussions are well informed, and the positions taken are judicious and fair. Anyone working on the Second Gospel will find significant help here, particularly with regard to the theology and purpose of the evangelist."--Klyne Snodgrass, Paul W. Brandel Professor of New Testament Studies, North Park Theological Seminary, Chicago

    Robert Stein's Mark Commentary is a scholarly well-researched and easy to read commentary on the second book of the New Testament. Stein's hermeneurics is quite evident throughout his readings and analysis of the book of Mark. The book is informed by years of study and scholarship which are derived from the disciplined study of this fine scholar. As many of previous works by Robert Stein, this one is one that lay readers, students, and scholars alike will come to appreciate as one of the best textual readings and exegesis on the Word of God for our times. Reading this commentary will not only be educational; but, will also prove to be amusing. Stein is one of those fine scholars who can both do a fine job in interpreting texts of the New Testament, and yet make it quite enjoyable a study for the reader. Best Wishes,
