March Theology Tourney 2024!!!

Help us name the most important theology book of the 21st century!

(That is, the one book that will make the greatest contribution to theological reflection for decades to come.)

Over the last two weeks in February we ran a nomination round, in which our readers and a diverse group of theological scholars weighed in on what they thought was the most important theology book. We then created the following brackets for our tournament by ranking their nominations, narrowing the field from 100+ books to 16.

Bookmark this post, as we will update the brackets and ballots here after each round…
We will also post scoring updates here throughout each round.
