Friday Book Giveaway

This week I am giving away Kenneth E. Bailey's Paul Through Mediterranean Eyes: Critical Studies in 1 Corinthians (IVP, 2011). 

Here's the blurb:

In this groundbreaking study of Paul's first epistle to the Corinthians, Kenneth Bailey examines this canonical letter through Paul's Jewish socio-cultural and rhetorical background and through the Mediterranean context of its Corinthian recipients. Uncovering the letter's roots in the Hebrew prophetic tradition, its intentional theological organization and its rhetorical reference to Near Eastern cultural practices, Bailey allows us to see the full scope of Paul's response to a community in crisis.


I will extend this giveaway until Monday, November 12th at 8:00 am EST. That is an extra day more than usual. So tell your friends, your family those who love books to enter their name below for a chance to win this book.

Remember, once the winner is announced she/he has five days to claim the prize or it goes back on the shelf.
