Friday Book Giveaway!

Welcome to another Friday giveaway. This week I am offering a book on the social and historical context of Jesus. K. C. Hanson and Douglas Oakman have a second edition of Palestine in the Time of Jesus (Fortress, 2008). Here is the blurb.

Hanson and Oakman's award-winning and illuminating volume has become a widely used and cited introduction to the social context of Jesus and the early Jesus movement. This second edition updates all the discussions in light of more recent scholarship, improves clarity and readability of diagrams and maps, provides additional diagrams and images to enhance the book for student use, and includes new classroom resources, for professors and students, on a Companion Web site.
Along with an overview of the ancient Mediterranean worldview, Palestine in the Time of Jesus explores major domains and institutions of Roman Palestine: kinship, politics, economy, and religion.

Here is a review of the book from RBL.

So sign up to win. I will pick the winner this Sunday, May 29th. As you now know, once the winner is announced the lucky individual will have five days to claim the prize before it goes back on the shelf for another time.

Good luck.
