Jesus against the Scribal Elite Giveaway—Chris Keith

The good folks at Baker Academic are giving away a copy of my new book, Jesus against the Scribal Elite.  You know how to enter:  (1) leave a comment; (2) sign up to follow the blog and leave a comment saying you did; and (3) share this post on Facebook or any other form of social media and leave a comment saying you did (you can leave a comment for each place shared).  Don't forget to leave comments since that's how we determine the winner.  For the wild card category this time, you can leave your favorite quotes from either of two of my favorite movies:  Tombstone and Dazed and Confused.  Here's mine from the first, from a young Val Kilmer in the best role he's ever played:  "Why, Ike, whatever do you mean? . . .  Maybe poker's just not your game, Ike.  I know!  Let's have a spelling contest."  And here's mine from the second, from a young Ben Affleck:  "I'm sorry, ma'am, I was just escorting your fine young son home from school.  There's some ruffians about. . . ."  As a request, though, let's keep the quotations relatively clean.

  1. And Dazed and Confused (not the movie but the song) is one of the best songs that I've ever heard. Anyway, I try to prove luck, another time, in these fantastic (now Baker) giveaways.
