Product Description

In The Gospel of Mark Fathers Donahue and Harrington use an approach that can be expressed by two terms currently used in literary criticism: intratextuality and intertextuality. Intratextuality involves reading Mark as Mark by Mark. It looks to the final form of the Gospel rather than its sources or literary history: its favored words, images,literary devices, forms structures, characterization, and plot. Intertextuality invites examination of the relationship between texts and a textual tradition. These intratextual and intertextual readings of Mark's Gospel helps us to appreciate the literary character, its setting in life, and its distinctive approaches to the Old Testament, Jesus, and early Christian theology. This commentary also includes an updated bibliography as an appendix.

Editorial Reviews

This volume is a paperback edition of another fine contribution in the Sacra Pagina commentary series by Liturgical Press. The paperback edition will make it more accessible, a welcome development for all pastors and students. . . . A ‘must’ for every library.

Catholic Library World

. . . sets the standard for a comprehensive one-volume treatment of Mark for this generation.
The Catholic Biblical Quarterly

Pastors will find this commentary spends more time in their hands and less on their shelves than others, and the congregations who hear their homilies and sermons will be enriched and challenged.
Interpretation

Donahue and Harrington, well-known scholars who have made numerous contributions to Markan studies in monographs and journal articles, have provided us with a helpful and reasonably sized commentary. It is large enough to deal with the majority of issues involved in the study of Mark without overwhelming us with more information than the average pastor or theological student can handle or wants. It is written succinctly and is very readable. It provides in its Introduction a brief and excellent overview of the major issues involved in the study of Mark.
Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society

The commentary is highly recommended for the target audiences of the series—biblical scholars, students, theologians, clergy, religious educators, and interested non-specialists—and the authors are to be commended for producing a work that is both scholarly and genuinely useful and accessible to a wide variety of readers.
Toronto Journal of Theology
