In honor of the new year (academic year, that is), I’ve decided to offer my first book giveaway! Next week someone will receive a lovely copy of Bart Ehrman’s The New Testament: A Historical Introduction to the Early Christian Writings (4th ed; Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2008). This is a very fine volume, with balanced discussion and plenty of supplementary images, tables, and diagrams. To enter, merely place a link to this post on your blog before Saturday afternoon (and be sure to trackback so that I can make sure your name is in the drawing). Good luck to everyone!
