The 2015 Great Baylor Giveaway: Two Schröters and a Konradt—Chris Keith

With the help of the good folks at Baylor University Press, we're starting 2015 with perhaps the best giveaway we've ever done on the Jesus Blog.  You can win three books:  Jens Schröter's From Jesus to the New Testament, Jens Schröter's Jesus of Nazareth: Jew from Galilee, Savior of the World, and Matthias Konradt's Israel, Church, and Gentiles in the Gospel of Matthew.  So that's two Schröters and a Konradt, and the first and last of those books are both volumes in the Baylor-Mohr Siebeck Studies in Early Christianity series.

Want to win all three?  You can enter in the usual ways:  (1) leave a comment saying you want to win; (2) sign up to follow the blog and leave a comment saying you do; (3) share this post on any form of social media and leave a comment saying you did.  For wild card entries, you can tell us your favorite non-theological book.  Mine is a close tie between Mark Twain's Life on the Mississippi, John Kennedy Toole's A Confederacy of Dunces, and Judy Blume's Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing.

  16. Fave non-theology book? Hmmmm, hard to pick. Maybe a tie between "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee, "The Stand" by Stephen King, and the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. More recently, I can't recommend highly enough "All the Light We Cannot See" by Anthony Doerr.

  20. Favorite non-theo book? The River Why by David James Duncan or The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russel (thanks again for the tip on the latter, Anthony!). I suppose you could make the case that both are theological in their own ways but, as fiction, you won't find either in most theological library stacks, so I think they get a pass. :)

  24. Okay well it depends how you define 'non-theological', but at least in the wissenschaftlich sense: Dostoevsky's Brothers Karamazov; Tolstoy's War and Peace; and Marilynne Robinson's Gilead for a three way tie.

  39. I want to win more than John C. Poirier, and my favorite non-theological book is a tossup between George Eliot’s novel MIDDLEMARCH, Mark Helprin’s short story collection THE PACIFIC, and William F. Buckley’s memoir THE UNMAKING OF A MAYOR.

    So that’s like … four entries, right?

  44. I say to my fellow church members, "Everyone is a theologian. It's just that most are not very good ones." We express our theology in everything we say, write and do, therefore, there are no "non-theological" books. None the less, one of my favorites has always been Dickens' A Christmas Carol."
