July Giveaway – Larry Hurtado – Last Few Days

For the next week or so, you have a chance to win a book authored by Larry Hurtado.

1.) Contact your local library and ask them to get a copy of this book in. Note, I cannot and will not actually check on this, so you know, send an email to them or call them or something asking them to get the book.

This is important. Look, I’ll be honest, I won’t know if you don’t, but contacting your local library helps to get scholarship into the library system replacing the likes of Joel Osteen and others whom I know you dislike as well. Putting real scholarship into local libraries is a push for me because I’ve seen what a bad religion/theology section is and I don’t like it. I would rather you contact your county library (or parish) and get them to get a few copies.

2.) Leave a comment – as many comments as you want. Each comment is an entry. That’s right. Leave as many, throughout the month, as you want. Leave one…leave one hundred. No biggie. I don’t care about the substance…

Since some had confusion last time… it could be one word or couple of words in German for all I care. The point of this is to annoy me with pithy or silly comments. You could post the Republican Party platform for all I care or the Libertarian…

3.) The point of this is to get the word out about these books, so post it on your blog for a pingback/trackback. Those count too.

4.) As a side note, if you could, once you’ve read the book, leave a review on Amazon.com or at the very least, your blog.

5.) Click through to read his blog: Here is Dr. Hurtado’s blog.
