A Celebration and Contest/Giveaway!

A Celebration and Contest/Giveaway! August 2, 2013

Well folks, it is time for a bit of a celebration, as this blog has just surpassed 500,00 views. I began the blog in January of 2007. I have tried to blog regularly. I have had five different homes during that time in two countries and four different states in the US. But I have tried to stay committed to blogging.

It is exciting to be settled in at Northeastern Seminary whence I will continue to blog, hopefully with even more regularity since I am not packing and moving anymore!

How shall we celebrate? How about a giveaway! I am giving away a copy of Raymond Collins’ new 2 Corinthians commentary in the Baker Paideia series.

In order to be in the running, you have to (1) sign up to follow me on Twitter (@nijaykgupta), and (2) write a comment on this post where you summarize the letter of 2 Corinthians in one sentence. (For those of you who think you can get away with a run-on sentence, I am limiting the sentence to 50 words or fewer!)

Entries from the US only (contiguous states) unless you will be at SBL and are willing to wait for a personal hand-off (which I am more than happy to do!).

The winning comment will be accurate and attention-getting. No plagiarism please!

This contest/giveaway will go on for a week’s worth of entries.

To sweeten the deal, I will throw into the package a surprise freebie – I think it will be worth it! I will reveal what the freebie is after the winner is selected.

The contest will end @ 11:59PM on August 9. Good luck to all!

What Are Your Thoughts?leave a comment
  • Paul’s suffering for Christ is his qualification for ministry

  • The consequence of the cross is new creation.

  • Daniel Motley

    A conversation about the comfort of Christ, covenantal calling, the collection for Christians and controversy over calumniators to the Corinthian church!

  • I am following you on twitter as chappiemartin. Here is my two cents about the message of 2 Corinthians, which is actually an adaptation of the Non Commissioned US Army Officer’s Creed –

    I, Paul, will not use my position to attain pleasure, profit, or personal safety.
    Competence is my watchword. Accomplishing my mission and the welfare of my children are most important. I will place my children’s needs above my own. I will be fair when recommending both rewards and punishment.

  • Grace and peace, the joys of heaven, a harsh warning.
    Boasting good and bad, an exasperated tone, an ecstatic vision.
    The infamous thorn in the flesh. Goodbye, I’m coming! Love, Paul.

    Hey baby, we’ve had a rocky start, but God knows you ain’t never gonna find another apostle better than me.

  • Abe Joseph

    The messenger of the cross is conformed to the message of the cross, foolishness to the perishing and life for those who believe.

  • Jeff Martin

    I did not read caefully enough it was supposed to be one sentence. – So how about this – I, Paul, will not use my position for selfish purposes, for I see you all as my children and will act for your welfare and be as competent and fair as I can be towards you, so with this in mind, Listen! – chappymartin

  • Hopefully this isn’t too late.

    Be reconciled!
