For the Christmas season, I’d like to thank my readers (and those of you that just happened to stumble upon this post) by giving away a copy of Mark Strauss’ new commentary on the Gospel of Mark. In the interest of full disclosure, this is the review copy I received from the Journal of Baptist Theology and Ministry. Nevertheless, it’s still in like new condition, is free, and you don’t even have to pay postage.*
In case you’re wondering what makes this commentary unique and a great addition to your shelf, check out my review here.
To enter, simply comment below. Tell me why you want it or simply say “I want it.” The giveaway ends on December 25, 2015 at midnight Pacific Time. I’ll announce the winner in the comments section of this post (in case you’re following it via email) and in a separate post the following day.
*Giveaway limited to continental US residents
Slowly preaching through Mark as opportunity presents itself. This would be a welcome addition to my toolbox.
welllllllll i want it bc i like strauss’ work!
I simply want this
Hi. I am a pastor an I am currently preaching on Mark. Next Sunday, I will be preaching on chapter 6:45-52. Besides, Zondervan doesn’t send me books for review. Merry Christmas and thank you for sending me the book.
1) I like commentaries; 2) I like ZECNT; 3) I like Mark Strauss 😀
I want this “immediately.” I’m lacking “Mark” in my ZECNT collection. Mark Strauss’ works seem to serve this world with the same urgency that is seen in the Gospel of Mark. It seems apropos for Mark to write on Mark and “euthus” perfectly describes how much I would love to have this copy.
It’s so pretty! Want.
Having just used and enjoyed the Ephesians one, would love this one too;)
I introduced an empty-shelved freshman to books. So there’s that. 😉
I would love to have this volume. I preparing some study materials on Mark and this would be ideal.
I want it!…for my son who is getting his degree in theo and biblical exposition. 🙂
Me, me, me!
I would like to expand my Markan commentary range.
I think it might hold value to this old preacher man… so I would like to win it.
love books — I have a son named Mark — would love to have it! Cheers–
I would really like to have it if it’s available. I’m a pastor who hasn’t gained any professional training in the classroom, and try to always only grab legitimate trustworthy resources. Your information on it was helpful, and having this resource will be a great one to work from.
Regardless of anything relating to this, Merry Christmas, enjoy your family, and Romans 15:13.
Yes, I would like a copy very much! Thank you!
I love Strauss. His work on the gospels has had a wonderful impact on me. And as a student for whom you should feel much compassion, I have no purse of considerable size in order to purchase new commentaries. I am probably not the most needy person to comment here, but as a pastor in training, I would use this commentary for years and years to come.
I want it because I need it 🙂
I would read it, cup of Peet’s coffee in one hand and Greek New Testament in the other. The problem is, my grey smokey cat might be sitting on the exegetical commentary and I’d have to shoo her off, like I have to do with Marianne Meye Thompson’s new commentary on the Gospel of John. Even so, it is a small travail and your book would prove truly useful in our household.
I want it. I need it.
I would like to win it because it should be a good commentary in a good series.
I want it!
I’m interested in checking out the ZECNT series, but haven’t had a chance to pick up any volumes yet. Mark would certainly make for a wonderful first volume to read!
I want it.
I want it. Will donate it to my schools fledgling library.
I want it. Love the series.
Jacob, I would love to have this Mark commentary. Mark is my favorite Gospel and I am preaching through it currently. This book would certainly help. Thanks, Jon
I’m collecting the series . Thanks and Merry Christmas to you.
I want it too.
I want it! Because I liked Mark Strauss’s textbook on the gospels.
Yep, I want it!
Count me in.
I’d love it! Just used the James version for my final exegesis class and really enjoyed it.
I want it.
I want it.
I would like to get this book. Thank you.
Always looking for a noble reason to cruise through Mark’s Gospel, and your efforts look like a good enough reason as any. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
I too want this
