And then there were eight. All of the top seeds are still in the running, but another 2-seed went down. Matthew this time. And two 7-seeds have made surprisingly deep runs in the tournament: Philippians and Revelation.
So heading into the Quarterfinals, there are eight books left: 3 Old Testament books (Genesis, Psalms, and Isaiah) against 5 from the New Testament (Romans, Philippians, Acts, John, Revelation). Cast your votes to see who makes it to the next round. (Update: Voting closed.)
The Round of 16 featured some pretty close matchups. Some of the 1-seeds experienced their first real challenges. After dominating the first two rounds, Genesis barely got past (4) Hebrews with 60.6% of the vote, and Isaiah won by an even narrower margin (58.7%) against (3) Luke.
The most interesting matchup of the round came when (3) Acts defeated (2) Matthew with 51.4% of the vote, even though Matthew led by a slight margin after the first day of voting.
