For those you familiar with canonical criticism and the works of Brevard S.Childs you know that whether you agree or disagree with his conclusions, this a a volume worth having on your shelf.
So, dear friends, I am giving away a new copy of Child's Introduction to the Old Testament as Scripture (Fortress, 1979). Here is the blurb.
This Introduction attempts to offer a different model for the discipline from that currently represented. It seeks to describe the form and function of the Hebrew Bible in its role as sacred scripture for Israel. It argues the case that the biblical literature has not been correctly understood or interpreted because its role as religious literature has not been correctly assessed.
I will choose a winner on Sunday, May 22nd. The winner will then have five days to send me their details.
