I figured that title would get some attention.
Right now my book, The Unseen Realm: Recovering the Supernatural Worldview of the Bible, is at 661 reviews. That got me thinking about a giveaway for the 666th review. But that would encourage no one to review the book until it hit 665. So … a better idea …
I’ve decided to give away a copy (either hard copy or Logos Bible Software format) of the Dictionary of Deities and Demons in the Bible. It’s my favorite reference work for biblical studies. All reviews of The Unseen Realm on Amazon are eligible, from number 660 through 700. Once the reviews cross 700, I will randomly select the winner from those reviews (661-700). It’s an expensive book, so there will be only one winner.
Here’s what you need to do. Once you post your review, take a screen shot of it and email it to me. That way I will be able to match your screenshot with the winning review and the correct email address. I’ll email the winner for a mailing address and announce him/her here and in the Naked Bible Facebook page.
If you have already reviewed Unseen Realm, you can’t participate on this giveaway (the earlier idea of altering old reviews just didn’t work well). However, you can still win something. Right now my latest book, The Bible Unfiltered: Approaching Scripture on Its Own Terms, is at 18 reviews. Once the 700th review for Unseen Realm appears I will check the reviews for The Bible Unfiltered. Anyone posting a review for that book from this point forward (#18+) is eligible to win a book chosen from the list below. I will pick one winner:
The Origin of Evil Spirits: The Reception of Genesis 6:1-4 in Early Jewish Literature, Revised Edition
The Watchers in Jewish and Christian Traditions
Ancient Israelite Religion: Essays in Honor of Frank Moore Cross
Same rules as above — once you post the review, send me a screen shot via email.
