Before I announce the lucky winner, I’d like to comment briefly on my own appreciation for Dr. Doug Moo. Perhaps the most frequently mentioned item of appreciation in the comments for the giveaway had to do with his NICNT volume on Romans, and this is what I would have commented on as well if asked the question. This commentary was the first commentary I ever bought, so in a sense you could say that this was where it all started – my Bible nerdery.
For those who commented on Moo’s work and/or Pauline studies, I greatly enjoyed reading your answers. In my opinion there were many who were greatly worthy of the prize, but the random (under the sovereignty of God, of course 😉 ) number generator has spoken. CONGRATULATIONS, NATE PICKOWICS!! Send me your mailing address, and be sure to tweet a #biblioselfie and/or make a meme when you receive it.
P.P.S. I can’t believe Jason Gardner did not win, as he was the only one to Tweet the giveaway just about every day.
P.P.P.S If you’re the type to actually search out the winning comment, you’ll notice that it was written by me. That’s because Nate said on Twitter that he couldn’t log in and therefore couldn’t comment, and he asked me to comment for him. When he won I cracked up because…well…in a way, I won. In light of my book-winning record, I just found this hilarious.
