The New International Commentary on the New Testament (NICNT) is based on careful study of the Greek text and reflects serious work in technical areas -- such as linguistics, textual criticism and historical concerns. The NICNT series flourished under the editorship of several New Testament scholars -- first Ned Stonehouse (Westminster Theological Seminary), then F. F. Bruce (University of Manchester, England) and Gordon D. Fee (Regent College, Canada) and now Joel B. Green (Fuller Theological Seminary). Newer volumes in the NICNT account for emergent emphases in biblical studies and their theological significance for God's people.

This commentary was a joy to use. Lane takes a mildly rhetorical-critical approach to Mark's Gospel (setting it against the Neronian persecution in Rome), and is abreast of the scholarship of his day while remaining evangelical in approach. This commentary helped the Gospel of Mark become more to me than the "Summary Gospel", and was a constant companion when I preached a series of sermons on it.

Written in a clear manner. Expresses his thoughts well. Solid exposition. I read this while my pastor was preaching through Mark and it was great preparation for the sermons. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

This widely praised commentary by William Lane shows Mark to be a theologian whose primary aim was to strengthen the people of God in a time of fiery persecution by Nero. Using redaction criticism as a hermeneutical approach for understanding the text and the intention of the evangelist, Lane considers the Gospel of Mark as a total literary work and describes Mark's creative role in shaping the Gospel tradition and in exercising a conscious theological purpose. Both indicating how the text was heard by Mark's contemporaries and studying Mark within the frame of reference of modern Gospel research, Lane's thoroughgoing work is at once useful to scholars and intelligible to nonspecialists.
