Biblical Studies Carnival 128 – October 2016

Bob MacDonald has done a remarkable job collecting and organizing the best of the BiblioBlogs this month at at his blog Dust.  Click all the links, support the scholars who do good work and share it on their blogs each month.

In other Biblioblog news, Jim West devotes his alt-carnival to his deep love and affection for Donald Trump, at least in pumpkin form. James McGrath has a collection of links on Christology from October and Brian Small has a brief Hebrews Highlights.

Although the old BiblioBlog top 50 has not been updated in a very long time, Jeremy Myers posted his “Top 100 Christian Blogs” last week. Reading Acts was an honorable mention in 2014, #77 in 2015, and this year #48. Meyers has created a good list of blogs, although many of the blogs on this list are less-than-scholarly and a few are rarely updated.

Jim West will be hosting the unified Carnival next month, likely reporting on the SBL annual meeting in San Antonio. If you have suggestions for Jim, follow him on twitter, @drjewest, or meet him at one of the AAR meditation sessions in San Antonio.

If you would like to host a Carnival, please contact me. It is not too early to volunteer to host a Carnival in 2017. If you you have hosted in the past, feel free to volunteer again. 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.

Finally, I have a FlipBoard Magazine dedicated to biblical studies. You can use the web version or follow me using FlipBoard on your iOS or Android devices. I really enjoy the iPad version of FlipBoard, so check it out. You can always follow me on twitter, @plong42.
