Bob MacDonald has just posted the 97th Biblical Studies Carnival at his blog, Dust. This is an impressive list of links of interest for biblical and theological studies, and includes several sing-along sections. Well done, Bob! Jim West his Avignonian Carnival at Zwinglius Redivivus, now with star ratings. Brian Small has a small collection of Hebrews Highlights for the month at Polumeros kii Polutropos, and Abram K-J from Words on the Word usually posts a Septuagint Soiree.
Next month’s carnival will be represent a brief unification of the Carnival as the Avignonian returns to Rome – Jim West will host at Zwinglius Redivivus. Feel free to send him nominations for the April Carnival before the May 1 Launch. The May 2014 (due June 1) is Jeff Carter at That JeffCarter Was Here. I would love to have some additional volunteers for the rest of the year, so contact me (plong42 at gmail.com) and we can get your blog scheduled to host a Carnival.
In other biblio-blogging news, Peter Kirby posted his quarterly list of top blogs. Although Reading Acts slips to #6 with the introduction of Jesus Creed to the list, I am happy to see Peter coming up with a very useful list every three months. This time he inserted a few Patheos blogs, although it is difficult to determine their ranking since they are all under the Patheos URL. Jim West remains the #1 biblioblogger for the 4,300 month in a row. I notice that John Loftus is back on the list with Debunking Christianity. I have seen a few times made the top ten, New Life, written by Marg Mowczko (MA, Macquarie University). She posts articles in Spanish and a few on equality of men and women in marriage and ministry translated into Urdu and Sindhi in addition to regular English posts. Another international biblioblog to make the list is Observatório Bíblico, written by Airton José da Silva of Brazil. The Italian Bibbia Blog, written by Australian-Italian Richard Wilson, is also in the ten this quarter. Kudos to Peter for making this an international collection!
