The Great Evangelical Theology Giveaway! (@ZondervanAcademic)

BirdSomehow I received in the mail an extra review copy of Mike Bird’s Evangelical Theology: A Biblical and Systematic Introduction from the fine folks at Zondervan. Instead of using it at as doorstop (don’t worry Mike, I would not even consider it!), I figured it would be better served in the hands of one lucky winner. So, we are going to have a giveaway! How do you enter you ask? Great question! All you need to do to enter your name into the drawing is leave a comment telling me you did the following things—the more you do, the more chances you have of winning Mike Bird’s excellent new book:

  5. Like Zondervan Academic’s Facebook page (leave a comment saying you did)

    • I graduated several years ago and went into a different field, so my formal study in religion is over, but living in the South, I feel this would be a particularly fascinating read for its own sake.

  3. Dr. Bird’s book would be immensely helpful for my personal studies. I am a current seminary student who is focusing on Biblical studies. Dr. Bird’s new book would be essential in working to bridge the gap between Biblical studies and systematic theologians. Dr. Bird also addresses current streams of thought in a thoughtful manner needed converse with the cultures of our day.

  4. 1. I am very interested in Bird’s proposal of a purely evangelical theology that is centered around the euangellion itself, rather than subsidiary issues. I have never had a systematic theology, and it looks great!

    And I’ve been on NLM for some time now

    I’m always looking for a good synthesis on the big issues of biblical studies. My passion is for the Gospel and I’m excited to read a theology which shares that commitment. I’m sure this book will be a great benefit to me.

  6. -Bird’s dual sensitivity to exegesis and systematics will help shape my approach to both disciplines so one will not overtake the other
    -followed TM on Facebook
    -liked Zondervan on Facebook

  7. As a future theology instructor (Lord willing) outside of US, I want to have this volume in my library along with other important works in theology. Especially, I’m interested to see how author (M. Bird) puts together two approaches for theology (biblical & systematic) and incorporates them in a single book!
    Also, I did all steps from 1-6.

  8. 1. I’m stoked to read a systematic book on theology. Either way I’ll end up buying the book. Sounds interesting.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win Mike’s contribution to a general study of evangelical theology.

  11. I am a biblical theologian, through and through – but sometimes I fail to look at the (biblical) context of particular ideas/concepts from Scripture. Bird’s text would keep me headed in the right direction as I seek to teach on different doctrines!
