Mark: Evangelist and Theologian is a look at Mark as a man, a scholar, a witness to the power of Jesus Christ. This book is designed to serve as a companion volume to I. Howard Marshall's Luke: Historian and Theologian. Its thesis, according to Dr. Martin is: "to set down in some detail the fortunes and values of recent scholarly research on the Gospel according to Mark." Discussions include such topics as: Why Mark's record is called a gospel; the term gospel and its shades of meaning; Mark as Matthew's follower; traditional views of setting; the pertinent theories of recent theologians and biblical scholars; opposition of heretical Christological beliefs; the place of the Markan historical Jesus in the post-Pauline experience and contemporary criticism in Church life; Mark's missionary motifs; and Mark's message for the Church, then and now. - Back cover

35 editions published between 1974 and 1992 in English and held by 636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Epistle to the Colossians, famous for its great expression of cosmic Christology, is also, in the words of the author, "one of the first Christian apologies or defensive statements of the faith over against its rivals that we possess". The main purpose of the Epistle is to refute certain teaching which denied the supreme importance of Christ. Due attention is given to the background against which this heresy developed, and to evidence which has been discovered in recent years

The theology of the letters of James, Peter, and Jude by Andrew Chester( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and Japanese and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The letters of James, Peter, and Jude have been greatly neglected within the Christian tradition: James, because it seems both to attack Paul's gospel and also to lack any coherent, overall argument or theology of its own; Peter and Jude because they lack the specificity of the Pauline letters and because the personalities of the authors are hardly direct and immediate. Andrew Chester argues that James is more theologically significant than is usually considered the case, and has a distinctive role to play in the contemporary discussion of the Christian faith. He sets James in context and discusses its main themes, exploring its significance especially for issues of power, justice and Christian living. Ralph P. Martin similarly stresses the importance of 1 and 2 Peter and Jude and demonstrates how they cast light on Jewish Christianity in its early development and show how the post-apostolic church used the memory of Peter

Philippians : an introduction and commentary by Ralph P Martin( Book )

5 editions published between 1987 and 2008 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul's letter to the Philippians may aptly be seen as a meditation on joy. But Paul's joy, rather than the result of ease and comfort, is a contentedness made pure through suffering. He has 'learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want'. Ralph Martin shows how these themes flow from and emulate Christ's humility, lead to spiritual fellowship among believers, and contribute to spreading the gospel."--Back cover
