Round 4 proved to be stunning and scandalous series of upsets: The Brothers Karamazov —heavily favored to win the tournament—was felled by The Lord Of The Rings, To Kill A Mockingbird murdered David Copperfield , and The Scarlet Letter prevented Pilgrim’s Progress from progressing to the Final Four.

Dear Reader,

Your charitable support for First Things is urgently needed before July 1.

First Things is a proudly reader-supported enterprise. The gifts of readers like you— often of $50, $100, or $250—make articles like the one you just read possible.

This Spring Campaign—one of our two annual reader giving drives—comes at a pivotal season for America and the church. With your support, many more people will turn to First Things for thoughtful religious perspectives on pressing issues of politics, culture, and public life.

All thanks to you. Will you answer the call?
