About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1952, this book presents a study of the creation of the Gospel of Mark and the early Christian calendar. The text was written by Philip Carrington (1892–1975), a prominent Anglican figure who was Bishop of Quebec from 1935 to 1960. Illustrative figures and an index of passages from Mark are included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of Christianity and perspectives on the development of the New Testament.
