Ruben Rus posted the 146th Biblical Studies Carnival for April 2018 at his blog, Ayuda Ministerial. Ruben has been blogging for a long time and is one of the few pages collecting both English and Spanish resources. You should add Ruben’s site to your regular reading list.

In other blogging news, Brian Small posted a few Hebrews Highlights on POLUMEROS KAI POLUTROPOS for April.  If you use FlipBoard to read blogs, consider following my Biblical Studies magazine. The Web-based version is good, but FlipBoard is an essential app for your iOS device. I use it on my iPad for news and other special interests (including biblioblogs). If you are looking for a more wild biblical studies experience, stop in at r/AcademicBiblical or  r/AskBibleScholars at Reddit. Reddit can be a scary place, but these two subreddits are often quite good for academic discussions (trolls are quickly moderated out of existence).

Next month Tim Bulkeley will host the carnival on his 5 Minute Bible podcast page. This Carnival will be a little different since Tim will focus on podcasts and videos pertaining to biblical studies (although he may include some traditional blogs). Follow the link and offer some suggestions to Tim: what are the best academic biblical and theological podcasts?

Here is the list for the upcoming Carnivals hosts. Please notice the empty dates – I am in desperate need of a few more volunteers for 2018!

  • June 2018 (Due July 1) –
  • July 2018 (Due August 1) – Karen R. Keen (@Keen_KR), who is completing her doctoral dissertation on Israelite ethics and violence in the Old Testament at at Marquette University.
  • August 2018 (Due September 1) –
  • September 2018 (Due October 1) – Jim West, (@drjewest)

The rest of 2018 is still still open, so feel free to volunteer for the fall months as well. PLEASE 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. Do not make me beg….
