The Discples According to Mark

Full Product Description

Redaction criticism attempts to identify biblical authors' theological interests by examining their adaptation of sources. Focusing on representative studies of Jesus' disciples in the Gospel of Mark, this pioneering book by C. Clifton Black has become the standard evaluation of that method's exegetical reliability.

Comprehensively reviewing recent scholarship, Black identifies three distinctive types of redaction criticism in Markan interpretation. He demonstrates that diverse redaction-critical interpretations of the disciples in Mark have bolstered rather than controlled scholarly presuppositions to a degree that impugns the method's reliability for interpreting Mark. The book concludes by assessing redaction criticism's usefulness and offering a more balanced approach to Mark's interpretation.

This second edition includes a substantial, detailed afterword that revisits the book's primary issues, converses with its critics, and provides an update of Markan scholarship over the past twenty-five years.

The Discples According to Mark by C. Clifton Black was published by Eerdmans Publishing Company in January 2013. The ISBN for The Discples According to Mark is 9780802827982.

"A brilliant and necessary critique. . . . It shows the potential of studying the history of research in order to challenge and redraw the contours of biblical criticism."  - Robert Morgan, Theological Book Review

"Black's trenchant critique of one aspect of recent scholarship on the New Testament is sobering, but it should stimulate discussion on what it is that we aim to accomplish." - Adela Yarbro Collins. Critical Review of Books in Religion

"As a whole, this study is a tribute to its author's remarkable capacity to engage in sustained, penetrating critique. . . . [Black's] dissection is accomplished with a measured evenhandedness." - Joel B. Green, Catholic Biblical Quarterly
