Friday Book Giveaway!

Yes blog fans I am giving away yet another free book simply for the asking. But today's giveaway is different for two reasons.

First, I am leaving to dig at Tel-Gezer next Friday and therefore won't be posting Friday Book Giveaways until after I return later this summer.

Second, this is not the first time I have offered this particular book. This is the same book that someone won at the beginning of May, but never checked back to see if they won. This is also why I instituted the five day limit on claiming prizes.

So here it is on offer once again.

Today’s offer is Documents and Images for the Study of Paul co-edited by Neil Elliot and Mark Reasoner (Fortress, 2011).

Here is the description –

Documents and Images for the Study of Paul gathers representative texts illustrating Jewish practices, Greco-Roman moral exhortation, biblical interpretation, Roman ideology, apocalyptic vision, epistolary conventions, and more to illustrate the complex cultural environment in which Paul carried out his apostolic work and the manifold ways in which his legacy was reshaped in early Christianity. Brief, insightful introductions orient the reader to the significance of these sources for contemporary interpretations of Paul's life and thought. Photographs illustrate the visual environment of the Greco-Roman world; a map, a timeline, and an index of scripture passages make the sourcebook the perfect companion text in courses on Paul and his letters. A companion website offers ancillary materials.

So please enter your name below and I will announce the winner sometime on Sunday, June 5th. Also, you will need to claim your prize by Wednesday if you want me to send it out before I leave the country.
