Jesus’ Literacy Paperback Available for Preorder . . . and Giveaway—Chris Keith


I just received the paperback copies of my Jesus’ Literacy.  In this book, I argue that Jesus did not possess scribal literacy, but that many of his contemporaries probably thought he did.  I also have an entire chapter arguing against the usage of criteria of authenticity in historical Jesus studies, and instead proposing what I there term the “Jesus-memory approach.” 

Amazon has the paperback edition available for preorder here for about $30.00, significantly less than the hardback edition.  Fortunately, though, T&T Clark is a great press with great editors, and they’ve decided to let us give away a copy here on The Jesus Blog.  You know the rules.  You can enter in four ways:  (1) comment here; (2) share this webpage on facebook, then comment to let us know you did; (3) sign up to follow, then comment to let us know you did; (4) tweet this webpage, then comment to let us know you did.  We’ll announce the winner in a couple weeks!
