Two books remain in The Big Bible Bash. Two that have made it through each round of voting. Two that have stood against every challenger. But, in the end, there can be only one.
If you’ve been following along, you know that we’ve almost reached the end of our tournament of Bible books. The last round matched the final four books against each other: Genesis vs. Romans and Psalms vs. John. They were the four favorites going into the tournament, and they all made it to the end. The big question: Which of these beloved books would advance to the championship round?
I have to admit that I was really hoping we’d end up with the final round that had one book from each testament. Either Genesis vs. John or Psalms vs. Romans would have made excellent contests. But that was not to be. Psalms and John were evenly matched at first, splitting the vote 50/50 for the first few hours of voting. But John eventually pulled ahead, winning with just 60.8% of the vote. And Romans eliminated Genesis by an even narrower margin (57.8%).
Here’s the updated tournament bracket if you’d like to see how the entire tournament has unfolded.
John vs. Romans
So that leaves us with a final round pitting the two New Testament powerhouses against each other. It’s John vs. Romans to decide the champion of The Big Bible Bash. Cast your votes now. (Update: Voting closed.)
And, since this will be the last round of voting in the tournament, it’s also your last chance to enter the contest to win some of the nearly $500 worth of books we’re giving away. All you need to do to enter the contest is vote in the tournament. The tournament will end on April 1. So make sure you vote before then.
