HENRY ALFORD The New Testament for English Readers

James Rosscup writes that Alford's series on the New Testament "contains much that is valuable in the Greek New Testament...though all of the Greek New Testament words have been changed to English throughout." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works)

W C ALLEN

JOSEPH A ALEXANDER

Spurgeon's critique - Alexander expounds Mark as an independent record, and does not constantly tell us to “see Matthew and Luke.” Hence the book is complete in itself, and the author’s learning and care have made it invaluable.

Hiebert - A comprehensive, conservative interpretation of Mark's gospel by a New Testament scholar who was one of the greatest of his day. Based on sound scholarship, the volume offers a careful unfolding of the meaning of the gospel text. Surprisingly fresh in spite of its age.

PAUL APPLE Commentary on the Gospel of Mark

WILLIAM BARCLAY Commentary on the Gospel of Mark Daily Study Bible

D Edmond Hiebert - Prints the author's own translation.  Valuable for its numerous helpful word studies and background material. Barclay holds that Christ's descent into Hades gave those who there heard Him a second chance.

Comment: I appreciate Barclay's unique insights on Greek words, but clearly his teaching about a "second chance" is NOT sound doctrine! Be an Acts 17:11 Berean with Barclay. See discussion of his orthodoxy especially the article "The Enigmatic William Barclay".

CAMBRIDGE GREEK TESTAMENT FOR SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES Commentary on the Gospel of Mark

Rosscup writes - "This is an excellent liberal study of the book from the standpoint of the Greek. There are excellent cross-references on key words, and usually serious efforts to explain the meaning." (Ed note: The word "liberal" is cause for considerable discretion if you use this work by Alfred Plummer.)

JOHN GILL

RICHARD GLOVER - "A Teacher's Commentary" - an older work (1884), but with excellent devotional comments

Review - Richard Glover (1837-1919) minister of Tyndale Baptist Church, Bristol has a very fine devotional commentary hidden under a bad title. “A Teachers Commentary on Matthew” (also a separate volume on Mark) is misleading, sounds D.O.A., and is easily passed over for something glossy. But as far as commentaries are concerned, Glover’s title is one of his only weaknesses. Glover writes with a deceptively simple style. He meditates on the text in front of him, looks for the heart, feeling, and experimental sense, gives instructive hints primarily for meditation but is wholly quotable. In a word, he is a fine example of expository writing,

Cyril J. Barber - Emphasizes the concept of ‘service’ as the key to understanding this Gospel, and provides a fast-moving chronological exposition.  Morgan’s works should be in every preacher’s library.” 

JAMES MORISON

Spurgeon - “A deeply learned work; we know of none more thorough.  Differing as we do from this author’s theology, we nevertheless set a high price upon this production.”

Cyril Barber - A very full, devotional treatment.  The overall strength of this exposition far outweighs its syntactical deficiencies.”

Rosscup writes - "Swete’s work is one of the best older conservative commentaries on the Greek text. Swete was an Anglican minister and a scholar in Latin, Greek, and theology, and taught at Cambridge. He does a fairly good job on the Messianic character of the suffering Servant."

D A Carson says that Swete's commentary is "dull and stodgy, in spite of its thorough scholarship."
