Ok, so we have our first winners for the Christianbook.com Academic blog “Read In”. The five winners will receive one copy of David Allen’s book Lukan Authorship of Hebrews.

Day Eleven (8/27): Conclusion
On each of these days, I will be blogging about the content of the corresponding sections of Lukan Authorship of Hebrews. I encourage everyone to make as many comments, and ask as many questions as you like!
The dates listed above are chosen so that our contest recipients have the opportunity to receive their books and begin reading in accordance with the blog schedule. If you did not win, don’t lose heart! You can still participate in our conversation and still have time to pick up a copy of the Lukan Authorship of Hebrews.
We have also selected the next book for our Read In series and the title will be announced on September 1st!
If you have a formal question that you would like to pose to the group, please send it to email@example.com. I will take it from there and include it with my daily post. We will also have David Allen, author of the book, answer some questions, but this is yet to be formally arranged. Again, many thanks to B&H Academic for providing the copies of the book for our Read In contest. And so, without further delay…
