Kelly R. Iverson & Christopher W. Skinner (eds.), “Mark as Story: Retrospect and Prospect”

When Mark as Story by David Rhoads and Donald Michie came out in 1982 it wasn’t received well at first but two decades later it has become clear that the book helped lay the foundation for a new approach in biblical studies: stepping away from the historical-critical approaches to focus on the literary aspects of the New Testament documents. The book by Iverson and Skinner is a good summary of the current state of affairs and also pays the necessary tribute to the original. This review was published in Neotestamentica (47, no. 1, 2013).
