Biblical Studies Carnival XXXII is up!

August 1, 2008

John Hobbins has really out done himself this month. He has posted on his blog, Ancient Hebrew Poetry,  not simply a biblical studies carnival, but a full three ring circus! Be sure to check out part 1, part 2 and part 3.

While I can’t promise that I’d ever be able to create the fine compilation that John has linked to, I want to point out one very nice feature. John links not only to posts from the last month but more importantly to knew resources available in the field. This makes his installment doubly useful.

John also takes on a more political matter in noting that many of his links in the carnival aren’t on the quasi-canonical Biblioblog list (my own blog included). John’s idea on how to remedy this situation is

that the list be subdivided in some fashion based on subject matter focus, and that it include precisely that range of blogs whose authors understand themselves to be a part of a community of puckish learners who actively absorb the results of ongoing research in the field of biblical literature broadly defined and cognate disciplines.

Interesting thought, though I regretfully doubt it will ammount to much.

    Face it, Jim, we’re just not good enough for the Biblioblog list. The sooner you come to terms with that, the sooner you can move on with your life . . .

    I’ve been discussing this with John for several weeks and I do think he has a plan to overcome the political issues whatever they may be. I think we will all may make the list come the October, November time frame. But then . . .
