That’s right - this is your chance to win a free copy of the newly published Westminster Handbook to Karl Barth (WJK, 2013), edited by Richard Burnett.
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:
Why and / or how (i.e., in what manner) should Karl Barth remain an important theological voice in 21st century theology?
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!
So get out there and tell your friends and neighbors.
I’d be especially interested in seeing submissions from undergraduate religion and theology students, seminary students, and pastors. So if you are such a person, send something in! And if you know such people, spread the word!
*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].
