We've got some good news for those of you who like free books. The good folks at Baylor University Press are letting us do at least two series of giveaways. The first one will be on the theme of memory and new approaches to the historical Jesus. We'll be giving away one each of the following: Jens Schroeter, From Jesus to the New Testament; Anthony Le Donne, The Historiographical Jesus; and Werner Kelber and Samuel Byrskog, Jesus in Memory. We know some of you have been keeping track of the role of memory in Jesus studies, and each of these books are key contributors to the discussion.
The second series will be on the classics and feature one each of the following: Oscar Cullmann, Peter; Rudolf Bultmann, Theology of the New Testament; and Wilhelm Bousset, Kyrios Christos. Fantastic, right? Baylor has been publishing editions of these classics so we'll have them for you.
We'll announce the first giveaway here soon. In the meantime, be getting ready to sign up to follow the blog, post about us on Facebook, and all the other normal means of entering our giveaways. I'm also trying something new this time, and if I were you and wanted one of these books, I'd also be keeping in mind my favorite quotes from Naked Gun, Spies Like Us, Fletch, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Swingers, and Major League.
