Reviews

“This book is a masterpiece of erudition and thoroughness.” – Donald Senior, C.P., President and Professor of New Testament, Catholic Theological Union in Chicago

“Another astonishing scholarly achievement by Sean Kealy. To have gathered in one place so much material pertaining to the history of the interpretation of Mark’s Gospel is a great service for exegetes, historians, and theologians.” – Daniel J. Harrington, S.J., Weston Jesuit School of Theology, Cambridge, MA

“In 1982, then a missionary in Nairobi, Africa, Sean Kealy published his pioneering work Mark’s Gospel, A History of its Interpretation. He has since then returned to Mark in essays and in books. He has been fascinated with this gospel. ... This is an outstanding contribution to the understanding of Mark’s Gospel and of the history of its interpretation over two thousand years.” – Martin McNamara, M.S.C., Professor Emeritus of Sacred Scripture, The Milltown Institute of Theology, Dublin, Ireland
