BloodMoonThis month’s Biblical Studies Carnival was hosted at The Biblical Review by William Brown (@willhartbrown). William says, “I’ve enjoyed the opportunity sift through the many posts pertinent to Biblical Studies. Aside from the specific links I’ve run across, I worked my way through many blogs from James McGrath’s Blogroll and the Complete List of Biblioblogs.”

In other Biblioblog news, Jim West calls September the most boring of months in his Avignonian Carnival. He does include my boring review of a boring book, which is pretty exciting in a boring way. Perhaps Biblio-Bloggers really were convinced the blood moons would bring the end of the world or reveal Donald Trump is the Antichrist.

Jacob Prahlow does a nice job rounding up some “recommended reading” each week. He is hosting a carnival in early 2016, so check out his work.

Brian Small did not do his Hebrews Highlights this month, but he posted a list of recent articles on Hebrews.

Peter Kirby’s Christian Origins is 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.”

If you are using FlipBoard, I have a Biblical Studies magazine collecting articles of interest to biblical studies. Search for Biblical Studies on your mobile device with the FlipBoard app or use the web-based version in the link.

If you would like to host a Carnival, please contact me. Reading Acts is hosting next month and Jim West in November, but I need a December volunteer (due January 1). Think of it as a chance to spread holiday cheer to the blogging world. After that, Tim Bulkeley has January 2016 and Jacob Prahlow (@prahlowjacob) has February. 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. Contact me via email (, DM on twitter (@plong42) or a comment on this post and I can contact you.
