As I announced earlier this morning, we’re hosting a tournament of Bible books this month. The idea is to pit all 66 books of the Bible against each other and vote on our favorites. Winners move to the next round until only one remains. At the end of the tournament, we’ll be giving away books from IVP, Zondervan, Baker, Eerdmans, and Crossway to those who participated. Participating in each round increases your chances to win some of these books, so stay tuned.
The Play-In Games
This is the opening round of the tournament, and it has two sections. First, we have two “play in” games. Since there are 66 books in the Bible and only 64 spots on the bracket, we need to eliminate a couple of books right out of the gate. Here are the contestants:
- 2 John vs. Haggai
- 3 John vs. Ezra
Voting is now closed.
Second, you’ll have the opportunity to cast your vote on how the tournament will unfold. We have six questions, and you’ll receive an additional chance to win some of our free books for every question you answer correctly.
Here are the questions:
- Which book is most likely to win the whole thing?
- Which Old Testament book will go furthest?
- Which New Testament book will go furthest?
- Which book seeded 9 or lower will go the furthest?
- Which book with a 1 or 2 seed will lose first?
- Which of the gospels will go furthest?
To answer some of these questions, you’ll need to look at The Big Bible Bash Tournament (updated). Update: Voting is now closed.
