The Future of Catholic Biblical Scholarship

A Constructive Conversation
Product Description
Catholic biblical scholarship in America appears to be in good health, but as the authors of this timely book argue, this characterization is deceptive. Despite its huge production of learning, contemporary biblical scholarship has lost some of its soul because of its distance from the life and concerns of living faith communities.

Looking not to criticize but to strengthen, Luke Timothy Johnson and William S. Kurz here open a conversation with others in the church concerning a future for Catholic (and potentially all) biblical scholarship that maintains the freedom of critical inquiry but within a living loyalty to tradition. Built on a conversational structure in which the authors respond to each other's work, the book examines the current state of Catholic biblical scholarship, finds important lessons in the tradition of interpretation, and points a creative way forward.

Taking a hard yet hopeful look at the issues facing Catholic biblical scholarship, this volume initiates the start of a richer and more meaningful form of learning.
