The Great Baylor Giveaway Part Three: Bultmann’s Theology of the New Testament and Cullmann’s Peter—Chris Keith

Today we continue the Great Baylor Giveaway with installment number three.  Baylor has been re-publishing some classics of New Testament studies with new forewords.  Today we get to give away two works that are giants in the field.  The first casts an especially large shadow:  Rudolf Bultmann’s Theology of the New Testament.  I continue to hear consistently that, to this day, no one has written a better theology of the New Testament than Bultmann.  Here you get both volumes in a single book with a new foreword by Robert Morgan.

The second classic is Oscar Cullmann’s Peter: Disciple, Apostle, Martyr.  With the work of Markus Bockmuehl and the late Martin Hengel, recent years have seen a renewed interest in the preeminent disciple.  This stream of research goes back to Cullmann, however, and this re-publication includes a new foreword from my Doktormutter, Helen K. Bond.  Helen is also currently co-editing a new collection of essays on Peter from the 2013 conference on Peter at the University of Edinburgh.  I was there, and the conference was replete with references to Cullmann’s classic.

You know the rules.  You can enter in the following ways:  leave a comment; sign up to follow the blog (and leave a comment saying you did); post this on Facebook (and leave a comment saying you did); and tweet this (and leave a comment saying you did). 

For the wildcard entry category, you can also include your favorite quote from Airplane or Airplane 2: The Sequel.  Mine?  I’m glad you asked—“I am serious . . . and don’t call me Shirley.”

  1. Does one need to do _all_ of those things, or _one_ of those things? If one, can one enter multiple times by doing more than one of those things? And what does "wildcard entry category" mean? (I'm new here...)

    1. Anonymous, you can do any of these things and leave separate comments for each. We determine who wins by counting the comments. So the more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win. The wildcard entry is just a bit of fun--you can get another entry by quoting a funny line from one of those movies.

  2. Very good initiatives from a very good blog, especially thinking with whom that read the Gospels not only from an isolated faith-perspective, but from an inclusive and comprehensive view (history, literature, theology, but also faith!). I send you a big hug from Catalonia and all my support for go further with this magnific blog!

  4. When I took Gospels at Covenant Seminary our professor had a lot of positive things to say about Cullman, especially his book "Peter." I already follow the blog, and I am about to post to FB. Thanks to Baylor and y'all for this giveaway.

  15. I am guessing I may be the only person to have ever read part of Bultmann's Theology of the New Testament while sitting in a deer blind in the Texas hill country on a very cold December morning. I was deer hunting with my dad while home on a break from Yale, but preparing for a doctoral comprehensive exam.

    I have two copies of Bultmann, but would not turn down the new edition. I don't have Cullmann's classic, so it would be especially welcomed.

    I will mention this on Facebook also.

  27. Torn between “Over Macho Grande?” / “No. I don't think I'll ever get over Macho Grando”

    “We'd better get to the tower, Lieutenant.” / “We have no tower, sir.” / “No tower?” / “Just a bridge, sir.” / “Why the hell aren't I notified about these things?”

    Hey, I can go with both!
