Westminster John Knox was kind enough to send DET a review copy of the book. Luckily for you, gentle readers, they did so about a week after I had received my pre-ordered copy. So now I’m giving you a chance to get a free book. Here’s how this is going to work…
To become eligible for the prize, you will need to send a short (500-750 word) “essay” (blog post, etc.) in response to the prompt:
This submission should be original work, not posted on a blog or otherwise made publically available. Send your entry to the DET e-mail address (derevth [at] gmail [dot] com) by February 1st. Be sure to include a clear subject line in your e-mail (e.g., “Westminster Handbook on Barth blog contest”). I—and any of the other DET contributors that I can enlist—will select a “best of” list comprised of 3-5 entries.(*) Each of those entries will be posted here at DET over the course of a week, and readers will be given the opportunity to vote on the prize-winning entry. The winner will receive the book!
Sounds like fun, eh? Spread the word far and wide on blogs, Facebook, and Twitter so that we can get a good group of entries to choose from. I’m excited to get an idea of how the younger generation of theological thinkers today view Barth and his creative possibilities in theology!
*Some restrictions apply: (1) DET contributors are ineligible, (2) authors of “established” blogs are ineligible, (3) full-time professors are ineligible, (4) [other things I may think of later].
