A while back I reviewed Michael Card’s volume on Luke’s gospel. In that review I commented that I did not expect a ‘worship’ leader to write a good commentary on Luke. Yet Card’s book on Luke really did astound me its combination of depth, accessibility and scholarship.
His volume on Mark does exactly the same thing. Card writes with wonderful insight. It has exactly the right amount of ‘information’ , comment and application.
On a practical note, the layout of this work is very good. Each chapter is broken into sections and each section is anything between 1-3 pages. This makes it ideal for devotional reading. And this is something which has impressed me about these books; they are equally good as a devotional book and as a resource for preaching and study – and that is rare.
I will be recommending these books to members of my congregation and to others as a wonderful way to read, ,mark learn and grow in the scriptures.
Very Highly recommended!!
