Then please read this Reading List Catholic Bible Interpretation (logos.com)

This currently reflects my interests and library ... I need it to represent everyone lay to seminarian to professional ... what needs to be added or changed?

I have 7 of the 39 resources. Thank you, MJ, for revealing a deficiency in my library!

Would this be the audible version? Big Smile

Searching by titles I have 16 of 23.    Checking by the reading list says I have 22 of 44.  [[I do not need to know why the two counts differ]]

Scott's humor tempted me to leave the typo uncorrected ... but it is fixed as in the new edition issue.

Ratzinger's paper "Biblical Interpretation in Crisis" is published as part three of the Logos resource God’s Word: Scripture—Tradition—Office, https://biblia.com/books/ignatiusgodsword. The second essay in the collection is also at least obliquely pertinent to your interest here: "The Question of the Concept of Tradition: A Provisional Response"

Thank you - I've modified the reading list appropriately.

Pope Benedict XVI's "In the Beginning..." is a text we look at in seminary as an example of excellent biblical interpretational work, though it is not primarily a text about interpretation per se.

Brant Pitre's books do the work of interpreting without a lot of reflection on the practice of interpretation, but perhaps I can still recommend them? I have only read Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist. Also in this vein is John Bergsma's Jesus and the Dead Sea Scrolls, in which he very loosely interprets some of the DSS sectarian texts and secondary texts towards a Catholic interpretation.

Alfred Loisy should probably be on this list, but I don't know where to begin with him and he certainly isn't available in Logos/Verbum...

Thank you very much - I will add these to the list ... they are exactly the sort of thing I need help finding.

You list a single print resource... there are plenty of potential candidates in print, but it's not clear you're looking for that.

I'm looking for print resources where Verbum offers nothing covering the same material or where the resource is influential i.e. a "must know".

Given that criteria, one that immediately comes to mind is:

Henri de Lubac: Medieval Exegesis: The Four Senses of Scripture (3 vols.) Eerdmans, 1998/2000/2009

Another consideration from among existing Logos resources I missed the other day:

Hahn, Scott W. Covenant and Communion: The Biblical Theology of Pope Benedict XVI.

Not yet.

Pre-ordering the OT one won't hurt...
