"Adela Yarbro Collins's remarkably learned and thorough introduction to and exposition of Mark's Gospel deserves a prominent place in every serious theological library. It provides us solid information not only about Markan studies but also about the Jewish and Greco-Roman world in which that Gospel took shape. It is a great achievement, the product of many years of dedicated research." -- Daniel J. Harrington "Weston Jesuit School of Theology"
