"Kingsbury acts as an exemplary pedagogue in this step-by-step exposition. This reviewer finds his overall argument persuasive."
— Gerard S. Sloyan, Temple University

"This important work represents a major methodological advance in the study of the Gospels.... The result is a significant reassessment of Mark's Christology and a stunning, new interpretation of the secrecy motif."
— David M. Rhoads, Lutheran School of Theology, Chicago

"Kingsbury provides a novel combination of a titular approach to Markan Christology and a literary critical reading of Mark's Gospel. By refracting the major titles of majesty through the prism of Mark's story woven around the plot of the secret of Jesus' identity, Kingsbury produces a lucid, integrated spectrum of Mark's Christology. Written in Kingsbury's typically cogent, clear, interactive style, this work offers a greatly needed corrective for Mark's Christology(ies) often seen as (intentionally or unintentionally) obtuse and incoherent."
— Robert A. Guelich, Fuller Theological Seminary
