This bibliography surveys works published on the Gospel of Mark from 1980 through 2005 – books, essays and articles. Journal articles are cross-referenced to their abstracts in New Testament Abstracts and, in many cases, references are given to reviews of books. The works of almost 1,500 authors extend to over 3,700 entries. The strongest aspect of this work is its indexing of the materials, which not only allows scholars to find materials directly pertinent to their work but also indicates the new directions the study of the Gospel of Mark has taken during the last quarter century. While works by scholars, for scholars, and in scholarly journals comprise the largest part of this bibliography, materials written to interpret that scholarship for a larger audience are also included.

Reviews

“ ... Dr. Humphrey’s work is not only a needed supplement to his earlier highly-respected bibliography (Mellen Press, 1981), but also the only comprehensive bibliography published in the last decade. The work will be a necessary addition to every library from specialized biblical holdings to college and university collections. Virtually every scholar working in New Testament will welcome it as an addition to his or her personal library ... As one who has worked with the Gospel of Mark for over thirty years, I stand in both admiration and gratitude for this major resource for teaching and research as will another generation of New Testament scholars.” – John R. Donahue, S.J., Professor Emeritus, St. Mary’s Seminary and University

“This [work] seems to have been very well prepared and is a model of clarity and precision ... As someone who has written books and articles on Mark I welcome this publication, and am convinced that my colleagues and students will find it to be a very valuable resource. I recommend its publication with enthusiasm and congratulate the author on a job well done.” – Professor Daniel J. Harrington, Weston Jesuit School of Theology
