And the winner of the Matthew commentary is….

We had a great response for our February book giveaway. Apparently, a lot of people are in the market for a good new commentary on the Gospel of Matthew. And, as you may have noticed from the comments, some people were rather diligent in their pursuit of said commentary. Well, let it never be said that hard work goes unrewarded.

According to the random number generator (actually I selected a number by having my grad fellow close his eyes and spin in a circle, counting the number of revolutions before he collapsed in a quivering heap of academic numbness), the lucky number of this contest was #21. (I was really hoping for a much higher number because it just looks so much more impressive. But, such is life.) Which, somewhat unsurprisingly, means that the winner of the commentary is Jason, of the infamous multiple-daily-postings. Congrats, Jason! If you’ll send me your contact info, I’ll get the book shipped out asap.

I also received news last week that we’ll be having another book giveaway this month. I don’t necessarily intend to do these every month, but if people want to give books away here, I’m not going to say no. More information to follow.

  1. PLEASE do the book giveaway submissions on Twitter only. Winning will only encourage Jason, and others as industrious as him, to flood the blog with entries. It diverts from the flow of following/participating in any substantive threads to have tons of entries in the “Recent Comments” section.

  2. Congrats, my friend. Now I’ll send you my mailing address so you can forwarded it to me. 😀

  3. pgroach: Winning would only encourage me? Why, of course it does! I’ve won two books this week, so I’ll continue my ways in pursuit of more books! *bwahahahaha*

    TC: Thank you for your congrats, but I think I’ll hang on to it! 🙂

  4. Blogging keeps me insane. Keep up all the positive work. I too love to blog. I found this one to be very informative
