And the Winner Is…

Jason! You’ll be receiving a fine copy of Bart Ehrman’s The New Testament: A Historical Introduction to the Early Christian Writings.  E-mail me here with your address and I’ll drop it in the mail this week.

(And Nick, I hope you’ll still consider this to be “the consummate biblioblog” even if you weren’t lucky this time.  ;-))
