Tempted to Tweet: Post your favorite Moore-isms to win

Communications Staff — March 11, 2011

Russell D. Moore, dean of the School of Theology and senior vice president for academic administration at Southern Seminary, is one of Southern’s most quotable personalities. To recognize the release of Dr. Moore’s newest book, Tempted and Tried: Temptation and the Triumph of Christ, the Office of Communications is launching a Twitter contest to celebrate “Moore-isms” – the best quotes (both serious and humorous) from Dr. Moore.

Friday, March 11, at 1:00 p.m. will begin the one-week Twitter contest looking for the best Dr. Moore quotes. All you need to participate is a (free) Twitter account.

Throughout the week, Communications will be looking for tweets that include a quote by Dr. Moore (be sure to include his Twitter handle, @DrMoore) and the hash-tag “#TandT.” The @SBTS Twitter account will retweet some of the best Moore-isms.

At the close of the contest a representative from the School of Theology will select the best three overall tweets. If selected as one of the three winners, you will receive a prize bundle including signed copies of three books from Dr. Moore – his newest release, Tempted and Tried, as well as his previous books, Adopted for Life and The Kingdom of Christ.

The Breakdown:

Sign up. Register for a free Twitter account (www.twitter.com). Be sure to follow both @SBTS and @DrMoore.

Tweet. Eligible tweets must include a (real) quote by Dr. Moore. The “Moore-isms” can come from the classroom, a chapel sermon, a book, a blog post, anywhere. Quotes can be recent or from years ago. You must include “@DrMoore” and “#TandT” in your tweet to be eligible for the contest.

Here’s an example tweet, from a sermon: @JohnSBTS: “We rage against the reptile, not against his prey.”-@DrMoore #TandT

Here’s another, from a book chapter: @JackSBTS: “The kingdom of God dawns in a peasant Jewish virgin’s uterus.”-@DrMoore #TandT

And here’s one more, from a class lecture: @JillSBTS: “If u send me something on Facebook abt Farmville, I’ll defriend u,& if you’re @ Highview I’ll straight up excommunicate u.”-@DrMoore #TandT

Win! If you’re one of the three winners, @SBTS will notify you via Twitter direct message. All prizes may be picked up in Communications, Honeycutt 205, during times that will be specified. Should you win and not reside in Louisville, the books will be mailed to you. Should you win and already own the titles included in the prize bundle-then share them with a friend.

Good luck. It’s time to start tweeting your favorite “Moore-isms.”

Contest Rules and Restrictions:

In addition to following the rules outlined above, you must be at least 18 years of age and currently reside in one of the continental United States to win any type of prize. Winners will be selected by the School of Theology; prizes will be awarded by the Office of Communications. Southern Seminary and Boyce College students, faculty, staff, administrators and supporters are welcome to tweet at will and are eligible to win prizes.
