Contest to Win Peter Oakes’ Galatians Commentary FREE (Gupta)

Alright folks – I got an extra copy of Peter Oakes’ brand new Galatians commentary (Baker, 2015) and I am giving it away for free.

But wait a second, this is a contest. Here are the rules:

#1: What would Paul Tweet? Make your own summary “tweet” of Galatians and Tweet it. Accurate summaries are decent. Clever summaries of Galatians are better! (No cheating by linking Twitter to a blog, website, etc. to buy more characters!)

#2: Use these two hashtags in your tweet –  #Galatians #WWPT (as in, “What Would Paul Tweet”)

#3: Copy your tweet into a comment on this post, along with the US state you live in. While everyone is welcome to tweet (please do!), I can only give the book away to someone in the contiguous US.

#4: Deadline is April 24 by 11:59PM PST

  1. Ah, Dr Gupta, yer killin’ me! What about those of us who’ve still been able to avoid tweeting?

  2. Paul’s tweet:

    Congregants should leave their cell phones in their car and dress respectively. Beachwear is inappropriate as is leaving the service early to drop by the liquor store and be home for the 1 PM football game.

  3. Ὦ ἀνόητοι Γαλάται τίς ὑμᾶς ἐβάσκανεν…ὁ σπείρων εἰς τὴν σάρκα, θερίσει φθοράν, ὁ δὲ σπείρων εἰς τὸ πνεῦμα…ζωὴν αἰώνιον #Galatians #WWPT

    For the purposes of this contest, I’m in MA (Barnstable, if you want me to be more precise).

  4. I tried clever but all my attempts look lame, so I will go for accurate (I hope!): #Galatians #WWPT The apocalpyse has happened! A sinner like me no longer wants to live for myself or the law but for Christ crucified!

  5. The removal of division in the body and the sufficiency of undiluted participation in Christ. Basically, NPP over Luther 😉 #Galatians #WWPT

    I tried.

  6. If new perspective it’s culture markers
    If old no good works
    If Hays it’s of Christ
    In Christ if it’s not
    We get in by grace
    And no one is cut

  7. Revision/New York State

    New perspective it’s markers
    Old it’s good works
    If Hays it’s of Christ
    In Christ if it’s not
    Grace for all; no one is cut
    #Galatians #WWPT

  8. Like the Blues Brothers, I’m on a mission from God. Like Willie Nelson, I’m on the road again. The promise of Christ is I will rise again. #Galatians #WWPT #140characters

  9. sadly, I’m without a tweeter…

    “If you want to be a real Jew, enter Christ. No ethnic barriers, just faith working through love (by the Spirit).”

  18. What’s this?!? Trading Jesus for law, unity for division, & gospel for no-gospel? Surely not! Be free & serve good fruits. #Galatians #WWPT
