Next Biblical Studies Carnival

On Hypotyposeis, Stephen Carlson posts the last call for the ninth Biblical Studies Carnival. You can use the submission form at to nominate your favourite posts this month. I haven't put my own nominations in yet, but top of the list for me this month would be Stephen's own series of posts on Brown on Morton Smith's Motives in JBL (which began at the end of July and continued into the first part of August). Also memorable for me have been Loren Rosson's posts on The Empty Tomb: Arguments against Historicity and The Empty Tomb: Arguments for Historicity. The other series of posts that springs straight to mind is from Michael Pahl, A Blogentary on 1 Thessalonians, an exciting, unfolding project.

Because I was away at the time, I did not get the chance to comment on the previous Biblical Studies Carnival, the eighth, a first class offering from Kevin Edgecomb at Biblicalia.

Thanks, Mark. In this case, you don't have to submit these recommendations, because all of these are already going to be in the carnival.

The supposedly slow month of August (due to vacations/holidays) is already looking fine; I can't wait to see what September brings!

Thanks Mark! It had seemed a slow month at first, but there was plenty of good posting being done, which made the Carnival that much easier to put together! Happy semester!
