Summary: "This is the first commentary on the Gospel of Mark to systematically apply a multidisciplinary approach, called 'socio-literary method.' Myers integrates literary criticism, socio-historical exegesis, and political hermeneutics in his investigation of Mark--the oldest story of Jesus--as 'manifesto of radical discipleship'."-- From back cover
