Over the past few weeks I have been thumbing through IVP's most recent "Black Dictionary," their Dictionary of the Old Testament: Wisdom, Poetry & Writings. I have prepared a brief review that will be posted tomorrow at SharperIron. Instead of cross-posting this review here, I would like to ask you to visit ShaperIron in order to read it. The reason for this is that I will be giving away a brand new copy of this dictionary, and instructions on how to participate in the drawing will be offered at the end of that post.

The drawing will be limited to SharperIron members only. So, if you are not a member of the SharperIron forums, please consider registering. There will be plenty of time to do so.

If you choose not to join SharperIron, I would still like to receive your response to the giveaway questions. You can leave your comments on this post. Judging how this contest goes, we may be able to do this again in the near future. Pass the word!
