Biblical Studies Carnival June 2015

1923 CarnivalThe June Carnival has arrived at William Ross’s blog. William has done a great job gathering links to excellent BiblioBlogs in the month of June, on a wide variety of topics. Everyone should find something of interest, go check it out. Click all the links and tell William what a great job he did.

In other Biblioblog news, Jim West has a chronological The Return of the Avignonian Carnival. While his usual sharp wit is on display, he does refer to the “the heretical official carnival hosted by the non-heretical Phil Jones (or one of his minions).” I am Phil Long, Philly Joe Jones was the drummer for the Miles Davis Quintet. I can see how people might get us confused.

Brian Small offers his monthly Hebrews Highlights, including his response to Felix Cortez’s RBL review of Small’s book, The Characterization of Jesus in the Book of Hebrews (Brill, 2012).

Peter Kirby’s Christian Origins is now aggregating biblioblogs and providing a nice digest of links for the week categorized into “Top 20 Biblical Commentary Posts,”  “Top 15 Biblical Criticism Posts” and “Radical Criticism Posts.” The site also indexes comments. Peter has not been blogging much and the top 50 list seems dormant again.

In personal blog news, I started a Biblical Studies Flipboard Magazine. If you are using Flipboard on your iPad or phone, feel free to follow me. I also have a few papers on if you are using that excellent site. I wrote an article on the New Perspective on Paul and posted a copy there, and many of my book reviews are collected on the site.

I am the “keeper of the Carnival List.” If you want to host a Carnival, please contact me.  The July 2015 will be hosted by Lindsay Kennedy (@digitalseminary) at My Digital Seminary  and August 2015  will be Bob MacDonald (@drmacdonald) at Dust. Both would appreciate any nominations for those carnivals.

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.  If you would like to host a Carnival in 2015 or early 2016, send me an email (, on DM on twitter (@plong42) or a comment on this post and I can contact you. September through December 2015 are still available, usually November and December are good months for BiblioBlogs because of the national SBLAAR and ETS meetings.
