In this addition to the well-received Paideia series, Mary Ann Beavis examines cultural context and theological meaning in Mark. Paideia commentaries explore how New Testament texts form Christian readers by

• attending to the ancient narrative and rhetorical strategies the text employs
• showing how the text shapes theological convictions and moral habits
• commenting on the final, canonical form of each New Testament book
• focusing on the cultural, literary, and theological settings of the text
• making judicious use of maps, photos, and sidebars in a reader-friendly format

Students, pastors, and other readers will appreciate the insights that Beavis derives from interrogating the text through multiple perspectives.

A superb commentary that is concise, precise and extremely reader-friendly in its approach. A must-have commentary for students of the Word and Pastors. Mary Ann Beavis has really done a wonderful job in only 330-plus pages to hit home the Message of Mark.
