Book Giveaway: Reading Scripture with the Reformers

IVP has kindly provided me with four great books to give away so we can celebrate the launch of the new blog design/domain. Thanks!

So every Thursday for the next four weeks, I’ll be announcing a new book giveaway. And this week’s book is Reading Scripture with the Reformers by Timothy George.

In Reading Scripture with the Reformers, Timothy George takes readers through the exciting events of the sixteenth century, showing how this dynamic period was instigated by a fresh return to the Scriptures. George immerses us in the world of the Reformation, its continuities with the ancient and medieval church, and its dramatic upheavals and controversies. Most of all, he uncovers the significant way that the Bible shaped the minds and hearts of the reformers.

This book shows how the key figures of the Reformation read and interpreted Scripture, and how their thought was shaped by what they read. We are invited to see what the church today can learn from the fathers of the Reformation, and how these figures offer a model of reading, praying and living out the Scriptures.

Entering is simple. Just do one or more of the following. And, as usual, the more of these you do, the better your chances of winning. (To make my life easier, please leave one comment for everything that you do. So, for example, if you “like” the post on Facebook and also Tweet about it, leave two comments – one for each.)

    I have five children, all of whom agree cats are evil. Does that come out of the reformation? Maybe I’m more reformed than I realized!

    And here’s my comment: while I have no children handy, I will share the following thought from a Reformer to enable others to teach THEIR children that cats are evil:

    “Be comforted, little dog, thou too in the Resurrection shall have a tail of gold.”

    - Martin Luther. (Notice he says nothing about the assured salvation of cats.)

  63. Dwight Gingrich January 21, 2012 at 6:28 am #

    I’m sorry, I like cats and so do my two daughters. I clearly need reforming, so I’d like to be considered for a free book by Timothy George! :-)
