In this fascinating commentary volume, author John G. Butler writes, "Mark is the servant Gospel. Therefore, like a servant, the book of Mark moves very quickly. It tells the story of Christ in only sixteen chapters whereas the other gospels take longer. The brevity of Mark does not diminish the value of the book, however. It is a very valuable book and at times gives us insights not found in the other Gospels." Thanks to the heartfelt delivery of the information gleaned by Butler in this commentary on the Gospel of Mark, the instructions for proper service in the name of God are presented in a manner which will speak to any reader, be they student or teacher in the study of scriptures.
