My review: Ironically, the book that I have the same name as, is one I don't often read. I tend to read the other Gospels more than Mark. A Bible study on this book intrigued me, so I signed up.
The book does cover the entire book of Mark, and is split up into 21 lessons. Each lesson has commentary on different sections of the chapter, and is followed by around 8-9 questions. To be honest, I haven't done many of these kind of studies.... my church just doesn't do that. That said, this seems to me to be a very well done Bible study....... and I am not just saying that because I am reviewing it. Seriously, it is. The author pulled a lot out of the book of Mark, and not only gives a lot of great insight, but asks some great questions to help the reader get more out of the book.
It is also the type of Bible study that could be done as a group, or as an individual. As I went through it, I didn't run across any questions that I felt needed to be answered in a group, and it might actually be geared more for individuals.
This is a Bible study definitely worth doing. It is the kind that will get help you get more out of this Gospel that is often overlooked by some people... like me.
