Tom Wright’s eye-opening comments on the gospel and what it might mean for us are combined, passage by passage, with his own fresh and involving translation. Wright captures the urgency and excitement of Mark’s gospel in a way few writers have.
Pastors, evangelists, and Sunday school teachers will love this.
