Book Give Away

This week I’m giving away a copy of Psalms 1-50 by Ellen T. Charry. This is the newest volume in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible series and has already garnered high praise. Consider this from Walter Brueggemann:

“It is a wonder and a gift to have a systematic theologian slow down and focus attention on the particularity of biblical texts. No one doing theology can do that more effectively than Charry, who considers the Psalms in their ancient orbit but draws them boldly toward contemporaneity for Christian readers. Charry’s attentiveness to the recurring issue of suffering and hope is a welcome accent. Her book is a persuasive addition to the growing corpus of books that intend to bring the Psalter more fully into play in the life, faith, and practice of the church.”

Leave your name in the comments section by NLT Friday, Feb. 27th, 6:00 am EST. I’ll draw the winner’s name that day. If I don’t hear back from the winner within seven days the book will go to another entry.

And the Winner Is . . .

Congratulations to Dwight Gingrich on winning a copy of Introducing Biblical Hermeneutics by Craig Bartholomew.

Thanks to all who participated.

This week I’m pleased to offer Craig Bartholomew’s new book Introducing Biblical Hermeneutics (Baker Academic). By any standard this is an impressive work. Here’s the catalog description:

“Renowned scholar Craig Bartholomew, coauthor of the bestselling textbook The Drama of Scripture(75,000 copies sold), writes in his main area of expertise–hermeneutics–to help seminarians pursue a lifetime of biblical interpretation. Integrating the latest research in theology, philosophy, and biblical studies, this substantive hermeneutics textbook is robustly theological in its approach, takes philosophical hermeneutics seriously, keeps the focus throughout on the actual process of interpreting Scripture, and argues that biblical interpretation should be centered in the context and service of the church–an approach that helps us hear God’s address today.”

It has glowing endorsements from Kevin Vanhoozer, James D.G. Dunn, Anthony Thiselton, Mary Healy and many more. Leave your name in the comments section by NLT Friday, Nov. 13th, 6:00 am EST. I’ll announce the winner that Friday. If I don’t hear back from the winner within seven days the book will go to another entry.
