Biblical Studies Carnival – May 2017

Not really Jeff

Jeff Carter has posted the Biblical Studies Carnival for May at his blog, thatjeffcarterwashere. As he says, “there are thrills and spills and delights around every new corner.” It is indeed a carnival feast for all the senses. He includes several podcasts, lots of images, tweets and even a little fake news. (Unfortunately the headline “Bibleman Set To Appear in Gritty Reboot” is not fake).

Jim West returned to Carnival Form with his “The June Avignonian Carnival of ‘May Biblical Studies End of the Academic Year’ Goodness.” Cassandra Farrin had to drop out for the June Carnival, so Jim will be the official carnival next month. Jim also offers this encouragement to inactive Bibliobloggers: start Posting again.
