Book Give Away

Well, you’ve probably heard about it so why not win a free copy of How God Became Jesus: A Response to Bart D. Ehrman. Here’s the catalog description.

“In his recent book How Jesus Became God: The Exaltation of a Jewish Preacher From Galilee historian Bart Ehrman explores a claim that resides at the heart of the Christian faith— that Jesus of Nazareth was, and is, God. According to Ehrman, though, this is not what the earliest disciples believed, nor what Jesus claimed about himself.  The first response book to this latest challenge to Christianity from Ehrman, How God Became Jesus features the work of five internationally recognized biblical scholars. While subjecting his claims to critical scrutiny, they offer a better, historically informed account of why the Galilean preacher from Nazareth came to be hailed as “the Lord Jesus Christ.” Namely, they contend, the exalted place of Jesus in belief and worship is clearly evident in the earliest Christian sources, shortly following his death, and was not simply the invention of the church centuries later.”

Last week I gave you a short excerpt from The Global War on Christians by John Allen. This week I’m pleased to offer this as our book give away. Allen writes not as an alarmist but as a realist who wants to awaken his readers to the plights of our brothers and sisters who are being persecuted. I’m enjoying this book and I’m sure you will too. Leave your name in the comments section NLT Friday, March 21st, 6:00 am EST. I’ll announce the winner that Friday. If I don’t hear back from the winner within 7 days the book will go to another entry. International entries are welcome. My thanks to Image Books for offering this copy to give away.

This week I’m pleased to offer Journey Toward Justice by Nicholas P. Wolterstorff. Here’s the catalog description:

“Christianity’s demographics, vitality, and influence have tipped markedly toward the global South and East. Addressing this seismic shift, one of today’s leading Christian scholars reflects on what he has learned about justice through his encounters with world Christianity.

Philosopher Nicholas Wolterstorff’s experiences in South Africa, the Middle East, and Honduras have shaped his views on justice through the years. In this book he offers readers an autobiographical tour, distilling the essence of his thoughts on the topic. After describing how he came to think about justice as he does and reviewing the theory of justice he developed in earlier writings, Wolterstorff shows how deeply embedded justice is in Christian Scripture. He reflects on the difficult struggle to right injustice and examines the necessity of just punishment. Finally, he explores the relationship between justice and beauty and between justice and hope.

This book is the first in the Turning South series, which offers reflections by eminent Christian scholars who have turned their attention and commitments toward the global South and East.”
