Write a Theological Limerick, Win Theological Trading Cards

Write a Theological Limerick, Win Theological Trading Cards December 19, 2012

One of the great products to come out this year — at least for theological geeks like me and you — is the set of Theologian Trading Cards by Norman Jeune. Seriously, if you’ve got a seminary student in your life, someone who can spell “Schleiermacher,” this is a great holiday gift.

Zondervan has proffered three sets of the cards to Theoblogy to give out to readers, and each set includes a signed card! You could win a card signed by…

NT Wright, Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza, or Kevin Vanhoozer.

To have a chance at winning, write a limerick about a theologian — one of these three, or someone else. I’ll announce the winners on Christmas Eve, as well as the winners of a couple older contests that I haven’t announced winners of yet. There’s also going to be a big book giveaway here on Christmas Eve.

I didn’t make the final cut, but Norm did mock up a card of me back in 2007 when he first came up with the idea:

To kick us off, here’s a limerick written for Theoblogy by Norm himself:

Fantasy theologians league
Like that could be filled with intrigue
Abelard ran the bases
Origen was castrated
And Tillich? The RBI king!

OK, have at it!
