IVP - Behind the Books - A Week in the Life of Corinth Giveaway!

June 15, 2012

A Week in the Life of Corinth Giveaway!

We're giving away FIVE copies of Ben Witherington's recent book, A Week in the Life of Corinth.

3962.jpg

Follow a fictitious man named Nicanor through an eventful week of business dealings and conflict in first-century Corinth. In his portrayal of life in the famous Biblical city, Ben Witherington presents an unforgettable introduction to life in a major center of the New Testament world.

Tim Challies recently called this book, "quite a useful little volume." And Nijay Gupta says, "If I ever teach a course on 1 Corinthians, I will probably add this into the textbook mix because it is short, entertaining, and very, very interesting!"

Check out our website for more information and reviews from our Goodreads readers.

To enter to win 1 of 5 copies of this book, leave a comment below. Post "I want to win!" to our IVP Academic Facebook page to enter a second time. Winners will be announced on Monday, June 18. Don't forget to include your email address when you comment so we can contact you.

Even though I want to win, I realized that I don't have to write "I want to win" in these comments, for this specific comment is for the facebook comments, as commented in the directions :)

Ben Witherington has written a number of outstanding books and especially those of his own Socio-Rhetorical series. His careful and cogent scholarship has opened many new avenues for solid exegesis of the NT text.

And of course, I would love to win a copy of this book.

Truthfully, I'll probably read "The Problem with Evangelical Theology: Testing the Exegetical Foundations of Calvinism, Dispensationalism, and Wesleyanism" first. :-P

Witherington's work on first-century historical background is always worthwhile. I've reviewed a number of this books for that reason.
