“This is, quite simply, the most important commentary on a book of Scripture since Barth’s Romans.” — Walter Wink

"Bound to become a classic in the field of gospel studies...Ched Myers has produced a commentary that is potentially as revolutionary as the very gospel account it portrays." — Sojorners

"Myers has produced a commanding and coherent political commentary on the Gospel of Mark, distinguished in its grasp of biblical and social scientific scholarship and amazing lucid in its style and argument...A cogent and venturesome biblical embodiment of liberation theology." — Norman K.
