With March coming up, and the anticipated March Madness sale Logos puts on every year, I would like to make a suggestion.

I noticed last year that for the first time (at least as far as I know) the brackets included a couple women authors. It struck me at that point that the brackets had previously included only male writers. They were primarily pop Christian culture writers, but I was pleased nonetheless. However, I think a much better job could be done on this.

What about including in the brackets female authors who have contributed substantial works to theology and academia? I include the following names that come to my mind, but I invite others to post additional names.

Beverly Gaventa; Candida Moss; Lynn Cohick; Sandra Richter; Karen Jobe; Elizabeth Achtemeier; Jeannine K. Brown; Catherine of Siena; Teresa of Avila; Morna Hooker.

Personally, I think this is important as it recognizes that women (although not always given the opportunity) have contributed in substantive and meaningful ways to the life of the Church.

I like this idea and I would support it with votes and dollars :-)

I'd vote for anyone who writes on good theology.

When will it start, March 1? Only 8 more days, yea!

Wouldn't it be great to have 100+ in the first round?

More important, wouldn't it be great to have every book for every author?

That's the best March Madness suggestion I have heard in a long time. Yes

It was suggested before and that's why some women appeared last year. I would love for Karen and Elyse to make it past, at least, the second round. πŸ‘

Ellen White and Aimee Semple MacPerson come to my mind, although I personally wouldn't vote for either of them (but probably others would...)

I have some of their material as part of a larger bundle. I wouldn't vote for them either even if I didn't have any of their material. The little I have is not that great...almost useless I'd say. Just MHO DAL

I assume that is a joke. Loraine Boettner is a man.

One of the most stimulating things I've read in recent years is Katherine Sonderegger's Systematic Theology volume 1:

https://www.logos.com/product/53043/systematic-theology-volume-1-the-doctrine-of-god

Unfortunately it looks like this is the only title of hers in Logos, which would limit her as a March Madness choice. But I hope she produces the rest of the series soon and that it finds its way into Logos.

In addition to having women authors, I would like to suggest a format that would allow authors from different traditions to get further into the tournament.  Have authors from the same traditions go head to head in different brackets.  That would mean that there would be at least some from each tradition that would receive the higher discounts, and each tradition would have a better chance of getting to the final four.  I recognize that I left out the SDA authors.  This is illustrative only.  Perhaps two of the smaller traditions would be merged for the tournament.

I would love a chance to vote for Evelyn Underhill and get a discount on her collection.
