Friday Book Giveaway

It's time for another giveaway. This week I am offering Neil Elliot and Mark Reasnor (eds) Documents and Images for the Study of Paul (Fortress Press, 2011).

Here's the blurb:
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.

If you are interested in a chance to win put your name below. I will announce the winner on Sunday. The winner has 5 days to claim the prize once they have been announced.
