The Turning Point in the Gospel of Mark
A Study in Markan Christology
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"With admirable concision, purified of cant, this monograph offers a reliable guide to Mark's most controversial issues in the service of a creative proposal for that Gospel's exegesis. Consonant with his own 'heuristic device,' Morrison's study is Janus-like: looking backward to assess over a century of Markan study, facing forward to firmer comprehension of Mark's literary and theological intricacy. An illuminating exploration of Markan Christology, The Turning Point in the Gospel of Mark merits a wide readership."
--C. Clifton Black, Otto A. Piper Professor of Biblical Theology, Princeton Theological Seminary, Princeton, NJ
"The structure and Christology of Mark's Gospel are perennial issues of Markan research that every student of the Gospel must eventually face. In this carefully crafted volume, Gregg Morrison offers us a reliable history of research on these topics, showing us how intimately related they are to each other. His work provides students and scholars with a sure map through the thicket of Markan research."
--Frank J. Matera, Professor emeritus, The Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C.
