"Mark wastes no time in getting down to business--a single-sentence introduction, and not a digression to be found from beginning to end. An event has taken place that radically changes the way we look at and experience the world, and he can't wait to tell us about it. There's an air of breathless excitement in nearly every sentence he writes. The sooner we get the message, the better off we'll be, for the message is good, incredibly good: God is here, and He's on our side. ...So Mark, understandably is in a hurry to tell us what happened in the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus--the Event that reveals the truth of God to us, so that we can live in reality and not illusion. He doesn't want us to waste a minute of these precious lives of ours ignorant of this most practical of all matters--that God is passionate to save us."
Eugene Peterson
