Review: Mark: New Testament Library [NTL]

User Review  - G Barron -

Eugene Boring's commentary is particularly effective at helping the reader to see the big picture of Mark's gospel, although he also does a good job of interpreting the details. Even when I didn't agree with his interpretation, I was impressed by his scholarship and ability to explain the text. Read full review
