2006 0-7734-5553-1 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.
