Taking a direct approach and delving into the text itself, R. T. France has produced an impressive study on the Gospel of Mark out of the Greek UBS New Testament text. His is a commentary on the text and theology raised within the gospel itself, "not a commentary on commentaries of Mark," as the publisher notes. France pulls together a structure that brings to better light Mark's mission and purpose, backed with socio-historical context and Old Testament usage, to create a masterful study without equal.
The Bible Today
"This massive commentary on the Greek text of Mark comes from the pen of an eminent Oxford scholar and British evangelical. . . The commentary itself is detailed and penetrating. . . Of particular value are France's detailed comments on the text of Mark, his extensive bibliography, and his judicious interpretation of Mark's theology."
