Larsen offers several helpful insights concerning the function of
[Mark 8:22-9:13] in relation to one another and within the larger
Markan context. -- Karl A. Kuhn, Lakeland College * Catholic

The volume displays thorough and exemplary exegesis. The author commences by placing the structure of the text within the broader Markan narrative.... Larsen identifies extensive connections between this passage and both the preceding and following material, eventually identifying these central verses as a hinge section (59). Because of the broad nature of such discussions, the volume is a valuable contribution to the study of the structure of Mark as a whole. After analyzing the structure, Larses performs verse-by-verse exegesis. Professors and their students will appreciate the detail and clarity of Larsen's approach to text, grammar, and syntax.... Those using the volume for preaching would do well to spend considerable time in those theological sections.... These characteristics [technical language], as well as the volume's rigorous exegesis in general, suggest readership at the seminary level and above. -- J David Miller, Milligan College * Stone-Campbell Journal *
