The Great Baylor Giveaway Part One: Schröter’s From Jesus to the New Testament—Chris Keith

To kick off our series of book giveaways sponsored by Baylor University Press, we’re giving away a copy of the recently-translated From Jesus to the New Testament by Jens Schröter.  Wayne Coppins has translated this version of Schröter’s Von Jesus zum Neuen Testament (originally published by Mohr Siebeck in the WUNT 1 monograph series).  Anthony and I have long claimed that Jens is the fountainhead of the New Historiography in Jesus studies, and this book is one of the prime places to find his work on this topic.  It also deals with many issues concerning the development of the NT canon.

From Jesus to the New TestamentYou can enter to win the typical ways:  leave a comment here; sign up to follow the blog (and leave a comment saying you did); post this on Facebook (and leave a comment saying you did); tweet this (and leave a comment saying you did). 

I’m also, however, adding another means of entering the contest.  Leave in the comments here your favorite quote from The Royal Tenenbaums.  It’s ok if someone else has already done it.  I’ll start:  “Well, Wildcat was written in a kind of obsolete vernacular” (Eli Cash).  Ok, there’s too many for any one favorite. 


Regardless, have at it.  We’ll count up all the comments, take them to the true random number generator, and find a winner and announce it on the blog.  Baylor University Press will then send you a copy.

  1. Why would a reviewer make the point of saying someone's *not* a genius? Do you especially think I'm *not* a genius? You didn't even have to think about it, did you? (Eli Cash).

  11. He saved my life, you know. 30 years ago, I was knifed in a bazaar in Calcutta. He carried me to the hospital on his back.
    Who stabbed you?
    He did. There was a price on my head, and he was a hired assassin. Stuck me right in the gut with a shiv.

  22. Since we're in the running for a book (ooh, pick me, pick me):

    The crickets and the rust-beetles scuttled among the nettles of the sage thicket. "Vamonos, Amigos" he whispered, and threw the busted leather flint craw over the loose weave of the saddle cock. And they rode on in the friscalating dusk light.

    Eli: I wish you'd've done this for me when I was a kid.
    Richie: But you didn't have a drug problem then.
    Eli: Yeah, but it still would've meant a lot to me.

  29. Narrator: The three Tenenbaum children performed Margo's first play on the night of her eleventh birthday. They had agreed to invite their father to the party.
    Chas: Well, what'd you think, dad?
    Royal: Erm. . . Didn't seem believable to me. Why are you wearing pajamas, do you live here?
    Richie: He has permission to sleep over.
    Royal: Mmm. . .
    Chas: Well, did you at least think that the characters were well developed?
    Royal: What characters? There's just a bunch of little kids in animal costumes.
    Margo: Goodnight, everyone.
    Royal: Oh, sweetie, don't be mad at me. That's just one man's opinion. . . Happy birthday to you. Happy birth. . .
    Narrator: He had not been invited to any of their parties since.

    (1) Hell of a damn grave. Wish it were mine.
    (2) He looks pretty good for a suicide. Attempted, anyway.
    No interest in a free book, though. I've got unlimited cash money, dawg.
