Excited because you still have the chance to win a copy of their book- ‘Jesus, Criteria, and the Demise of Authenticity’. They’re so excited that when they heard the news that the contest was running through March 15, they had one of their friends snap this photo:
LeDonne & Keith- Excited…
And who is their friend? This guy…
That’s right… their friend is Justin Bieber. Word on the street is, the Biebs LOVES the book* and wishes everyone would read it because he has.* In fact, he loves LeDonne and Keith more than he loves Goodacre and Tilling (photographed below)-
(Goodacre and Tilling)
*The statements concerning the Biebs may not be completely true. He may not really love the book.
You should do so now while you can get it at the bargain price of $2.99. I think that’s 1 Pound Sterling for the Brits among us.
I’ve no idea how long it will be that price.
With thanks to Brian F. on the twitter for the heads up.
Enter the contest to win a copy of Le Donne and Keith’s ‘Demise of Authenticity’. Why does entering make you compassionate? Because look at this photo that Le Donne and Keith have sent when they heard that the entire world had not yet entered:

Yes, I was surprised at how young they are too but there it is. Isn’t your heart fragmented seeing such distress? Please enter… I’m sorry, I’m weeping uncontrollably and have to get a tissue…
Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen- or just Dr. K. Like Coach K. But different. But what a fantastic series he describes.
Did the Bible only take its definitive form after Alexander conquered the Near East, after the Hellenisation of the Samaritans and Jews, and after the founding of the great library of Alexandria? The Bible and Hellenism takes up one of the most pressing and controversial questions of Bible Studies today: the influence of classical literature on the writing and formation of the Bible.
Bringing together a wide range of international scholars, The Bible and Hellenismexplores the striking parallels between biblical and earlier Greek literature and examines the methodological issues raised by such comparative study. The book argues that the oral traditions of historical memory are not the key factor in the creation of biblical narrative. It demonstrates that Greek texts – from such authors as Homer, Hesiod, Herodotus and Plato – must be considered amongst the most important sources for the Bible.

Long awaited, it has now been published. You need to read it. Truly. And I’m not just saying that because I like Eric’s work. I’m saying it because it’s true.
As Joel Watts would say, “the more you reed this booke, the more smarteer you’ll will be”.
She would write a song and beg you, beg you, to enter the contest to win LeDonne and KeIth’s impressive Demise of Authenticity. But she doesn’t, so I have to. Please enter. I’m growing sad looking at photos being sent to me of LeDonne and KeIth weeping like this…
