Contest: Best New Said at Southern Tagline = $100 Eisenbrauns Certificate

EISENBRAUNS, academic publisher and bookstore, has donated another gift certificate to Said at Southern.

This time it’s a fat $100.

How You Can Win It

Since our redesign, I’ve struggled to find the right tagline for Said at Southern. The problem really goes back to my failure to define the site – it is what it is.

Here’s the process:

  1. Leave your suggestions in the comments of this post.
  2. On Friday September 15th, I’ll put the best five in a poll
  3. The person who suggested the winning tagline gets the $100

Feel free to hype up the contest and bicker with one another in the comments, that always keeps things interesting.

Thanks to Eisenbrauns, if you’ve never heard of them – go visit their website!

  17. @Dark Sith–For some reason, all of your comments have been coming in as spam. I have been having to go through about 4 times a day to make sure your comment gets posted in a timely fashion. I am not sure why it is spammed…unless it is being jammed by LoneStar! (Let’s see if you catch that one.)

  32. Because Boyce would be blogging if he were here.
    Because in every generation there is a Toy.

    Oh, and Tony, with my previous tag line (“Because some things just have to be said”), I’ve got a Scripture to go with it.

    Acts 4:20

    Bump me up baby!

  33. Tony Kummer says:

    @Timmy Brister: With the Bible verse, it makes it a front runner in my mind. I’m a little nervous about Toy similarity to Tony, but then again I don’t enjoy Hebrew Exegesis and he did.

  34. Brother Hank says:

    @Tony –

    If we need proof verses for our taglines, allow me to add one with my “Baptist thoughts with a Southern accent” (which can also be altered to “Theology with a Southern accent”, etc) – the “accent” being in view here:

    And the Gileadites captured the fords of the Jordan against the Ephraimites. And when any of the fugitives of Ephraim said, “Let me go over,” the men of Gilead said to him, “Are you an Ephraimite?” When he said, “No,” they said to him, “Then say Shibboleth,” and he said, “Sibboleth,” for he could not pronounce it right. Then they seized him and slaughtered him at the fords of the Jordan. At that time 42,000 of the Ephraimites fell. – (Jdg 12:5-6)

    I rest my case.

  35. Tony Kummer says:

    @Brother Hank: Nice . . .

    It’s not that we need proof text, it’s just that everything Timmy writes can come off Provocative, that is except his Pantings.

  36. Brother Hank,

    That is pretty good, and I enjoy calling you Brother Hank. Just don’t call me Brother Brister. ;)

    Professor of Mischief has an uncanny ability to spot the verse in controversy. I guess that’s why he is so good at getting me in trouble. Keep ‘em at arms length or he will be making a YouTube video of you lip syncing to Numa Numa.

  38. Here’s a tagline lifted from a song idea I’m currently working on:

    “Said at Southern: Freeing the Monster from it’s Chains”

    Stephen Newells last blog post..NCAA Football Week 2

  39. Tony Kummer says:

    @Stephen Newell: Does that make the SBTS bloggers the monsters?

  40. bull says:

    “A big bag of candy for your theological sweettooth”
    “They said it, we spread it”
    “You’re official home for credit hours in blogging at Southern Seminary”
    “Where the Southern students are when they’re not studying”

  41. Tony,

    Given how things were in the early days of the SBTS blogosphere (loaded with emergents and emergent-friendlies), I’d say so. It wasn’t pretty in some corners. I actually got called an agent of Satan by one of ‘em. So yeah, there are monsters among us. :-p

  42. “Join the conversation”

  43. Tony Kummer says:

    There are still 9 days left and I see room for many more suggestions. I’d like to see someone combine the ideas of from the SBTS tagline “for the truth, for the church, for the world, for the glory of God” with our collaboration and diverse trans-SBTS readership

  44. Since it appears that we are allowed multiple entries, consider:

    “Feeds that feed” or “Feeds that nourish”

  45. Tony Kummer says:

    “Why should the emergents have all the good blogs?”

    “Because someone has to think while in Seminary.”

    “Where original thoughts go between lectures ”

    “No one is really going to read you research paper”

    “Everything else is obsolete”

    “Footnotes from the theological underground”

  46. “Tony’s Tangled Theological Thoughts ”
    “We Will Blog Anything!”
    “A Course in The Ministry of Mischief: Class is now in Session”
    “Stirring the Pot Because No one Else Will”
    “Dangit! Just Give Me The Gift Card!”

    OK, so I’ve discovered that taglines are not where my creative juices flow. But here goes:

    from many voices . . . one truth, one Lord, one purpose.

    co-laboring for His truth and to His glory

    a fellowship of voices contending for the faith.

    a fellowship of voices, a chorus of truth.

    speaking His truth, seeking His glory.
