I also posted this on Amazon.com. This series contains the audio from class lectures by Dr. Bill Creasy.
Dr. Creasy covers each book verse-by-verse, providing context to the material by explaining other passages in the Bible that may relate to a passage under study, with descriptions of corresponding historical events and the geography and their relationship to the passage, as well as anecdotes from his travels or study. I find it extremely helpful to study the Bible in context with geography and history.
As explained in the opening lesson on Genesis, this study starts with Genesis in the Old Testament, then moves to Matthew in the New Testament, then Exodus and Leviticus in the Old Testament, then back to Mark in the New Testament, and so on. Dr. Creasy does this because 1) if covered in weekly segments, as done in his class, it would be in year 5 before he got to Matthew, and 2) to help show the relationship between Old Testament and New Testament.
According to the syllabus I received from Dr. Creasy (he sometimes deviates from this in class), Mark is the fifth in the Logos Bible Study series, preceded by Leviticus and followed by Numbers. Mark has 16 chapters, and the study is comprised of 14 lessons. Total time - 10 hours, 17 minutes.

Dr. Creasy has this rare talent to transport you to the scenes so graphically. I'm praying for Dr. Bill as my way of saying thanks a lot!

Thoroughly enjoyed this comprehensive study of Mark's gospel. I learned a lot of interesting facts (example: I don't remember ever hearing before that Gethsemane means oil press, and that olives were grown on the Mount of Olives specifically for the purpose of providing oil to light the Temple). Dr Creasy is a captivating speaker and really brings the characters and events to life. I will be listening to other studies in this series.
