"Michael Pakaluk offers a fresh translation that captures the vivid narrative of Mark's Gospel along with a running commentary based upon his own careful and thoughtful study.... I recommend it for anyone interested in mulling over the Gospel, especially those who are open to taking it seriously as though true." -- Scott Hahn * Franciscan University of Steubenville *
"Michael Pakaluk has produced a new and vivid translation which, together with his penetrating commentary, presents a narrative that is at once the most mysterious and the most true to life of the Gospels. This must surely be the definitive version of a great book-a book of astonishing literary power." -- SIR ROGER SCRUTON * writer and philosopher *
"With elegant simplicity, literal precision, and the conceptual graces of an Aristotelian philosopher, Michael Pakaluk brings the Lord Jesus Christ into sharp focus through the eyes of the Church's first universal pastor, St. Peter. Highly recommended." -- C. C. PECKNOLD * Associate Professor of theology, the Catholic University of America *
"Reading The Memoirs of St. Peter deepened my appreciation and enriched my understanding of the Gospel of Mark. It is a perfect companion that brings the verses of the gospel to life." -- OBIANUJU EKEOCHA * international human rights activist and author of Target Africa *
"There are many Scripture commentaries and translations, but few that match the sharp intelligence and broad imagination of Michael Pakaluk's." -- ROBERT ROYAL * Faith & Reason Institute *
