The text is in the usual style of a commentary in that is begins with general introductory issues such as the historical context and authorship followed by an exposition of the Markan text in narrative sequence. In the introductory material Byrne provides a synthesis of Jewish apocalyptic thought as background to understanding what is meant by the Kingdom.

This explanation provides a necessary key for interpreting the many conflict stories in Mark as an indication of a deeper, cosmic conflict between God and the powers of Evil. This conflict will liberate humanity from the dominion of the Evil One, but this liberation is won a great cost, as the title suggests.
Byrne presents the overall design of the gospel in terms of three interacting stories. The Australian Jesuit, Brendan Byrne, a very learned and pastorally sensitive biblical scholar, calls Mark the 'scariest gospel' because it addresses the darkness of unbelief and despair that characterize so much of human living in antiquity and today. His latest work is a fitting conclusion to his excellent trilogy of commentaries on the Synoptic gospels. The scholarship is sound, and the presentation is both clear and challenging.
Those searching for a sound and theologically rich commentary on Mark's gospel for this lectionary year might well consider this fine study by Australian biblical scholar Brendan Byrne.
A Costly Freedom: A Theological Reading of Mark's Gospel
With this book Byrne has added an important interpretation of the Gospel of Mark which stands alongside many of the best hermeneutical efforts rather than against them. Presented in this format, the book can be well-used as part of a substantial comparative exegesis project in an upper level undergraduate course. Byrne is clearly passionate about, and an expert in, assisting preachers and those who hear them to interpret the Synoptic Gospels theologically. I will return to this commentary again and again.
