  • Gospel According To Luke

    Original price was: $65.00.Current price is: $42.99.

    The newest installment of today’s premier mid-level Bible commentary series, James Edwards’s Pillar volume on Luke devotes attention throughout to the vocabulary, historical background, special themes, and narrative purpose that make the Third Gospel unique among the four Gospels.

    Edwards counterbalances the generally recognized Gentile focus of Luke by highlighting Luke’s overarching interest in depicting Jesus as the fulfillment of God’s providential work in the history of Israel. While fully conversant with all the latest scholarship, Edwards writes in a lively, fluent style that will commend his commentary on Luke to ministers, students, scholars, and many other serious Bible readers.

  • Gospel According To Mark

    Original price was: $55.00.Current price is: $42.99.

    This new Pillar volume offers exceptional commentary on Mark that clearly shows the second Gospel, though it was a product of the earliest Christian community, to be both relevant and sorely needed in today’s church. Written by a biblical scholar who has devoted thirty years to the study of the second Gospel, this commentary aims primarily to interpret the Gosepl of Mark according to its theological intentions and purposes, especially as they relate to the life and ministry of Jesus and the call to faith and discipleship. Unique features of James Edwards’s approach include clear descriptions of key terms used by Mark and revealing discussion of the Gospel’s literary features, including Mark’s use of the sandwich technique and of imagistic motifs and irony. Edwards also proposes a new paradigm for interpreting the difficult Little Apocalypse of chapter 13, and he argues for a new understanding of Mark’s controversial ending.
