"When we study the Gospel according to Saint Mark," declares William Barclay, "we study the most important book in the New Testament: for in it, we have the first life of Jesus ever written." In his introduction to this volume, Dr. Barclay explains why the first three Gospels are called "synoptic," how they came to be written, and why many scholars believe that Mark was the first. Barclay's interpretation of the Gospel is full of wisdom, and it offers clear and captivating insight from beginning to end. Having picked up one section to study, the reader will find it difficult to stop reading until the whole volume is completed.
