The October 2017 Biblical Studies Carnival is posted by Doug Chaplin at his blog, Musings of a Christian Humanist. Doug did a great job gather the best of the Bibliblogs for the month. He included a few unique categories (Bible Conspiracies, Canon, Textual Criticism, and Bible translation).  Visit Doug’s carnival and let him know you appreciate his work (and stay around for the comments on this one).

The next two carnivals are already spoken for, and March of 2018 is taken. I would really like to get commitments for January 2018 (due February 1)  and February 2018 (Due March 1) .  If you are a veteran blogger who has hosted in the past, please feel free to volunteer again. I would also like a few new bloggers to considered hosting in 2018.

  • November 2017 (Due December 1) – Jim West, @drjewest
  • December 2017 (Due January 1) – Jennifer Guo,  @jenniferguo

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.

You can also leave a comment here with your contact info and I will get back to you.  If you use FlipBoard to read blogs, consider following my Biblical Studies magazine. The Web-based version is OK, but Flipboard is an essential app for your iOS device. I use it on my iPad for news and other special interests. Follow me on twitter (@plong42) as well.
