Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals

The Message of the Gospel of Mark is best summarized in chapter ten, "For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many" (v. 45 ESV). It is this theme that not only inspires the title of Dr. Donald Grey Barnhouse's commentary on Mark, but serves as the focal point around which he exegetes and expounds the saving message of Christ.

With a pastoral heart and biblical discernment, Barnhouse thematically breaks down the book of Mark into twelve chapters. Each chapter acts as a springboard toward the culmination of ultimate servanthood in the death and resurrection of Christ. The honest compassion that characterized Dr. Barnhouse's ministry flows throughout the pages of this book. Barnhouse faithfully draws attention to the crucial doctrines in the book of Mark, all while emphasizing its application.
