Image resultJim West is the host of the 129th Biblical Studies Carnival for November 2016. His carnival is all about the annual meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature. Jim seems to have had a good time at SBL, at least he took a lot of pictures. Brian Small has report on the SBL Hebrews section.

Although the old BiblioBlog top 50 has not been updated in a very long time, Jeremy Myers posted his “Top 100 Christian Blogs.” Reading Acts comes in at #48 on a list that includes a wide variety of less-than-scholarly blogs (and a few barely active blogs).

The next carnival host is Jennifer Guo. You can tweet her nominations for the December Carnival (@jenniferguo). In January 2017 (posted February 1) Cassandra Farrin will host the Carnival at Ethics and Early Christianity.

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 (plong42@gmail.com), DM on twitter (@plong42) or a comment on this post and I can contact you.

[Update 12/2 – Jacob Prahlow  @prahlowjacob volunteered for  February 2017 (Due March 1) and Reuben Rus from Ayuda Ministerial/Resources for Ministry for July 2017 (Due August 1). I still need March – June 2016.]

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.
