The November 2017 Biblical Studies Carnival is posted by Jim West at Zwinglius Redivivus. Jim titled his carnival “The Wide-Ranging 2017 Biblical Studies Carnival and SBL Annual Meeting Edition.” He has a great collection of links focusing on biblical studies (less theological and no church history this time around). He does include some reports from tweeters at SBL, which he calls the “2017 Side-Show (a.k.a. Freak Show).” I think he is bitter because he could not attend the meetings.

It is a good carnival, but he does call me Paul Long and one point and has this oddity: “Phil Long does a nice job discussing faith and action in a post on Titus. He may be from Texas, but he still makes sense from time to time.” Although I do admit to making sense from time to time, I am from California, and current live in Michigan. I really do not might having my name misreported, but saying I am from Texas is really too much.

The next carnival will be hosted by Jennifer Guo, @jenniferguo. Feel free to offer her a few nominations for the last carnival of 2017.

unfortunately, I do not have any volunteers for January and February 2018 yet. If you are a veteran blogger who has hosted in the past, please consider volunteering again. I would also like a few new bloggers to considered hosting in 2018.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 BiblioBlogs.

Email me  (plong42 at gmail.com) or direct message on Twitter (@plong42) to volunteer. 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), I tweet less than the president.
