As a teaching medium on the mission field today the Gospel of Mark is of proven value. It is fortunate, therefore, that the author of this solidly built and helpfully concise commentary is himself a missionary. Dr. Cole has deliberately avoided detailed discussion of the more abstract problems of Biblical scholarship on Mark--though he has taken these into account and has concentrated on producing a practical work-a-day commentary for the use of those engaged in the humbler events of Christian service. In keeping with his purpose, Dr. Cole has taken "due care of the agreement of the minds of thoughtful commentators of past or present, of whatever communion they profess themselves." The reader may rightly expect, therefore, to find here a distillation of some of the best comment upon and insight into the Gospel of Mark that the Church has produced. One feature that bears special mention is the splendid statement on "the Gospel and the Church" that stands at the forefront of the commentary and serves admirably not only as a preface to the study of Mark but of the other Gospels as well.
