Fourth of July or Memorial Day picnicMemorial Day marks the beginning of summer for most academics, but the Biblical Studies Carnival never takes a vacation. The May 2014 Biblical Studies Carnival will be hosted by Jeff Carter at his blog, ThatJeffCarter Was Here. What are the blogs you read this month which contributed to the discussion of biblical literature theology, and culture? What posts made you think more deeply? If you are done with the cookout and sick of the Pawn Stars marathon, send a link or two to Jeff (thatjeffcarterwashere at hotmail.com) and look for his Carnival around the first of June.

I am also looking for volunteers for the 2014 Carnival Season through the end of the year. Most months are still open, so please email me (plong42 at gmail.com) and pick your month! Carnivals are a great way to attract attention to your site if you are new blogger, but more importantly it gives you a chance to highlight the best and the brightest in the world of bibliblogs.
