Perspectives on the Ending of Mark

textual criticism No Comments

Recently, I read the book titled, Perspectives on the Ending of Mark 4 Views, edited by David Alan Black. This book focuses on one of the most important problems in New Testament textual criticism.  The book is a compilation of papers that were read at a conference entitled “The Last Twelve Verses of Mark: Original or Not,” held April 13-14, 2007, at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina.  Perspectives are presented by: Daniel Wallace, Maurice Robinson, Keith Elliott, David Alan Black and Darrell Bock.  Bock presents a summary of the earlier writers and then gives his own assessment of the textual problem.  I have posted my own review of this book on my blog under Book Reviews.  I would welcome your comments.  If you desire to make a comment, please click on the comments box and you will be taken to a page where you can reply.
