For the last 16 weeks, our Adult Sunday School class has been studying the Gospel of Mark. This tight-knit group is amazing at studying/analyzing scripture in a way respectful and at the same time challenging. If you live in the area, I invite you to join us sometime.
NIV – New International Version – Mark
Mark for Everyone – N. T. Wright
Tom Wright’s eye-opening comments on the Gospel of Mark and what it might mean for us are combined, passage-by-passage, with his fresh translation of the Bible text. Making use of his true scholar’s understanding, yet writing in an approachable and anecdotal style, Wright captures the urgency and excitement of Mark’s Gospel in a way few writers have.
Tom Wright has undertaken a tremendous task: to provide guides to all the books of the New Testament, and to include in them his own translation of the entire text. Each short passage is followed by a highly readable discussion with background information, useful explanations and suggestions, and thoughts as to how the text can be relevant to our lives today. A glossary is included at the back of the book. The series is suitable for group study, personal study, or daily devotions.

Thanks for sharing your review of this book; it is especially good since you have been through the study with a group.
