The Jesus I Never Knew by Philip Yancey (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1995). Hardcover.
“This is the best book about Jesus I have ever read, probably the best book about Jesus in the whole century. Yancy gently took away my blinders and blazed the trail through my own doubting fears, pious know-it-all, and critical balderdash until I saw the Savior and thought I heard him ask me, ‘Now who do you say that I am?’ and I understood the question as I never had before.”Lewis Smedes, Fuller Theological Seminary.
The Making of Mark by A. Q. Morton (NY, UK, Canada: Mellen Biblical Press Series, 1996). Hardcover, 108 pages. A brief, highly technical but intriguing analysis of the structure, component parts, and physical make-up of the Gospel of Mark, from papyrus to pages, from codex to content. Excellent for libraries in schools of religion.
