The Future of Catholic Biblical Interpretation

Marie-Joseph Lagrange and Beyond
  • By Isaac Augustine Morales, James B. Prothro
Product Description
Notable Catholic interpreters of Scripture discern the guiding values of biblical interpretation at the brink of a new era for the church.

Under the influence of Benedict XVI and Francis, Roman Catholics, whether lay or religious, have found renewed interest in studying sacred Scripture. Yet the church has also grown and faces new challenges in the new millennium. What does the future of Catholic biblical interpretation look like? And how ought the church's rich heritage of biblical interpretation continue to influence it?

This volume collects essays by some of the most influential voices in Catholic biblical scholarship today. Covering a variety of topics, from the Old Testament to the New Testament and biblical theology, the essays are united by a common goal: to hear the word of God and proclaim and apply it within the church. The authors pay special tribute to Marie-Joseph Lagrange. This nineteenth-century French Dominican led the way in blending critical methodology with respect for the Church's authority in order to put scriptural study in service to the good of souls. Featuring diverse and authentically Catholic perspectives, The Future of Catholic Biblical Interpretation represents fresh purpose and direction for the church's long and fruitful tradition of exegesis.
