After one day of voting in the Round of 64 for the Big Bible Bash Tournament, most of the favorites are performing as expected. At this point, it appears as though all of the top seeds will move on to next round.
And IVP has generously donated a few more boks to the giveaway. That means we’re now giving away 15 BOOKS WORTH ALMOST $500!
A Few Close Races
Although the top seeds are doing well, we do have a few races that are too close to call. And that includes almost all of the contests involving a 8 seed vs. a 9 seed.
- (8) Deuteronomy vs. (9) 1 Peter
- (8) 1 Timothy vs. (9) Hosea
- (8) Leviticus vs. (9) 2 Chronicles
We even have one 5 vs. 12 matchup that is running close. Those of you who watch March Madness know that at least one of the 5 seeds always loses to a 12 seed. And, although its ahead at the moment, (5) Esther is in a close race against (12) 2 Thessalonians.
Two other races that I’ll be keeping my eye on involve (4) Ruth and (6) Colossians. Both are leading at the moment (Ruth against (13) 1 Kings and Colossians agains (11) 1 Samuel), but their races are closer than I would have guessed.
