The next Carnival, which will post on 1 January at midnight plus 1 minute will be exclusively devoted to posts on either the Hebrew Bible / Old Testament and the New Testament. Book reviews of books on those particular topics, posts of exegesis, and that sort of thing will make up the entire carnival’s offerings.
So for the next 31 days or so if you see an interesting post (or post an interesting post) on either the OT or the NT please do send them along. And thanks.
