Tim Bulkeley posted the heavily footnoted Biblical Studies Carnival at SansBlogue. He used some new and interesting categories to cover the best and brightest biblical and theological studies blog posts in the first month of 2016. Tim has a nice round-up of reactions to the SBL decision to move Review of Biblical Literature behind a pay-wall (or, make it for members only). Head over to SansBlogue and click all the links, leave a comment thanking Tim for his hard work.
In other biblio-blogging news, Jim West’s Alt-Carnival is more of a travel-blog this month. In case you missed it, Jim was teaching in Hong Kong in January, so he is sharing some of his photos of his time there. Next month he promises a “Carnival of Errors,” the worst of the blogs, “the most egregiously inaccurate, the most dilettantish.”
As always, Brian Small has a great collection of Hebrews Highlights for the month. There were quite a few posts on Hebrews in January (including many I posted here Reading Acts). If you use FlipBoard to read blogs, consider following my Biblical Studies magazine.
The next few carnivals will be:
- February 2016 (Due March 1) – Jacob Prahlow @prahlowjacob
- March 2016 (Due April 1) – N. T. Wrong
- April 2016 (May 1) – Jeff Carter at That Jeff Carter Was Here
- May 2016 (June 1) – Brian Renshaw, @renshaw330
- June 2016 (July 1) – Kris Lyle at Old School Script, @KristopherLyle
I have included a link to the site hosting as well as a twitter account so you can nominate posts during the month by sending them directly to the host. If you do not have a twitter account, contact the host via their blog.
As always I am looking for volunteers for the rest of the year (after June). 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. Please email me (plong42 at gmail.com) or direct message on Twitter (@plong42). You can also leave a comment here with your contact info and I will get back to you.
