Resources for Studying Mark
What a joy it has been thus far to preach and worship our way through the Gospel of Mark on Sunday mornings. I have been deeply affected by each glimpse of and encounter with the Savior we have experienced through this Gospel. I don't want this series to end and I am proceeding as slowly as possible!
As we’re nearing the midpoint of our sermon series, perhaps you’d like to do some deeper study on this gospel. Thankfully for us, there are many wonderful resources available to guide our study. The following are three of my favorites.
Let’s Study Mark, Sinclair Ferguson. Don’t be fooled by the size of this little guide to the Gospel of Mark. Sinclair Ferguson is one of my favorite authors and he provides an easy to follow, richly devotional tour through the drama of Mark's Gospel.
The Cross From a Distance, Peter Bolt. This book is a thematic study of the atonement in Mark’s gospel. If you want to freshly survey the wondrous Cross on the which the Prince of Glory died in the Gospel of Mark, this is your book.
The Gospel According to Mark, James Edwards.If you’re looking to go deeper in a verse-by-verse study of Mark’s Gospel, you can’t do better than this commentary. In fact, of all the commentaries I’ve referenced on the Gospel of Mark, this is my favorite. Thorough, yet devotional. Technical, yet readable.
