Book Giveaway: Christmas 2012

Over the past couple of months it has become abundantly clear that I need to get rid of books. While some of the books I need to get rid of are dated and will most likely end up at Goodwill, some are real gems. I am getting rid of these books because I now have them in electronic format. Instead of spending the time waiting for someone to buy them on, I have decided to give them away. My loss is your gain.

In celebration of my recently concluded “Pre-Reformation Interpretation of the Old Testament” class, I am giving away a copy of Dictionary of Major Biblical Interpreters. This is a kind of thanks to those of you who have patiently read my posts about Justin Martyr.

This is an incredibly helpful resource for anyone interested in the thought of major interpreters throughout Church History.

How to win? Respond via email ( or in the comments section to this question: “Who is your favorite interpreter from before the 1500s and why?”

Some of the details:

  • The contest ends 12/13/12 at 8:00PM.
  • Though it won’t win you extra entries, feel free to share this opportunity on facebook or twitter. I have plenty of good books to giveaway, and I am hoping they will find their way into good homes.
  • This is a giveaway from my personal library; the book has been slightly used.
  • You are not responsible for shipping.
  • I apologize to my international readers (I know I have at least one in Münich). I do not have the funds to ship internationally.
  • If I have more than one response, names will be drawn from a hat at random.
  • I will announce the winner in the comments section. If you are picked, please shoot me and email with your address, and the book will be in the mail the following business day.

    My favorite would definitely have to be Justin Martyr. He wrote at a time of great upheaval. I also think he has some fascinating way of combining Hellenistic and Jewish thoughts through a Christo-centric lens. Final thing about him, he has some interpretations on OT dietary passages that have peaked my interest. So yeah, definitely Justin Martyr.
