The Best of Benedict XVI

We’ve pitted 32 resources against each other to compete for your votes. Pick your favorites, cast your votes, and save up to 50%—your vote determines the discount.

Winning resources advance to the next round; the more rounds they win, the deeper the discount.

Drumroll, Please: Verbum March Matchups Are Here

It’s time for an East vs. West throwdown that racks up savings on books you love!

Verbum’s March Matchups are here, which means you get to vote for your favorite Church Father—and ramp up discounts while you’re at it.

Here’s how it works:

Over the next two weeks, you get to vote for your favorite Church Father across four rounds of competition. The further a Church Father goes in the contest, the more you save on his works.

This year’s bracket lists western Church Doctors and Fathers on the left side and eastern Church Doctors and Fathers on the right. While we love them all, there can only be one winner in this contest.

The first round of voting is open now and closes March 4 at noon. Once the votes are in, you’ll save 20% on works of Fathers eliminated in that round.

The rest of the rounds are as follows:

  • Round 2: March 4–7. When the round ends, works from the eliminated Fathers become 25% off.
  • Round 3: March 7–11. Eliminated Fathers’ works become 30% off.
  • Round 4, the championships: March 11–14. You’ll save 35% on works from the runner-up, and 40% on works from the bracket winner.
