Excellent historical analysis of gospels

by thepacesetter on Dec 5, 2008

This is a fascinating historical analysis of Mark's gospel focusing on the sections from Jesus's arrival in Jerusalem through the resurrection.

The authors argue that some of the traditional theological understandings of salvation through Christ's death are absent in Mark.

The Last Week: Borg/Croissan

by Mar87 on Aug 9, 2007

The Last Week is a careful, refreshing reading of Mark's account of what is sometimes called "Holy Week", tracing the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus. The book is based on solid scholarship, and written in a style which makes it easily understood by any reader willing to understand and take in what is being presented. I would strongly recommend this book for anyone looking for an understanding of this crucial portion of Mark's gospel account. "The Last Week" provides new and profound insights into the meaning of Jesus' life and in particular of his mission. This slim volume should appeal to those who are of the Christian faith as well as to those who are not. It is a worthwhile adventure to pick up, read and reflect on the material presented in "The Last Week".
