Product Description

Placher's commentary offers an insightful theological perspective in a commentary format on what most scholars believe to be the earliest Gospel. The result is an accessibly written and theologically articulate commentary focusing on the questions Mark's Gospel raises for us today. This is sure to be of immense value for all who want to hear the astonishing story Mark tells about "the good news of Jesus Christ" (Mark 1:1).

This new series will build on a wide range of sources in areas such as biblical studies, the Christian tradition, popular culture, and the language of Christian worship. Whereas most commentaries emphasize the Bible's ancient meaning, Belief concentrates on the living Word relative to the theological and ethical concerns of today. Noted scholars representing diverse backgrounds and perspectives will ensure a fresh and invigorating approach to the Bible.

Nearly half of the volumes in the series will be written by women, and almost a third will be written by persons of color. Authors include Michael Battle, Anna Case-Winters, Harvey Cox, Miguel De La Torre, Boyung Lee, Thomas G. Long, Daniel Migliore, Stephanie Paulsell, Marcia Riggs, Donald Saliers, Ronald Sider, Leanne Van Dyk, and Allen Verhey.

Editorial Reviews

"Without giving up the requisite attention to the details of the text, the volumes draw upon the rich theological traditions of the past and attend to the continuing theological issues and perplexities of the present." Patrick D. Miller, Emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary
"The interface between biblical texts and constructive theology is never easy or obvious. This welcome series holds great promise for a new engagement at that interface." Walter Brueggemann, Emeritus, Columbia Theological Seminary
