Mark 1–8: A Handbook on the Greek Text offers teachers and students a comprehensive guide to the grammar and vocabulary of Mark. A perfect supplement to any commentary, this volume's lexical, analytical, and syntactical analysis is a helpful tool in navigating New Testament literature. Rodney J. Decker leads students toward both a greater understanding of the Greek text and an appreciation for the textual and rhetorical intricacies not available in English translations.
What an excellent resource. Rodney Decker’s Mark 1–8 and Mark 9–16 are every exegete’s dream. Phrase-by-phrase and word-by-word Decker works his way through Mark’s Greek text, shedding light on points of grammar, meaning of words, and usage, all the while taking care not to overinterpret or discover nuances that really are not present. Everyone who engages the Gospel of Mark in its original language will profit from these great volumes.~Craig A. Evans, John Bisagno Distinguished Professor of Christian Origins, Houston Baptist University
Decker brings us closer to Mark, so that we realize how little we saw.~J. Andrew Doole, Review of Biblical Literature
These two volumes provide an exceptionally useful resource for those who want a sure guide to understanding the Greek text of Mark’s gospel.~Donald Senior, CP, Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, The Bible Today
