The essence of this suggestion is found in the thread title. It's a simple idea, but I think it would be a good one. Perhaps there is already one in the works?

That would be great. Yes  First Things is part of some of the other Journal Bundles, but it would be nice to see some of the Catholic biblical journals.

The Wikipedia article below has a list that includes Catholic theological journals.  I don't know how complete it is, but a starting point.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_theology_journals

Also, before I saw this post I created one for CBQ.  I just linked it back here.

I just noticed that if you don't want to get a bundle, you can get it on its own.

Yes  I ordered back in February and was pleasantly surprised to see it under development already.  Looking forward to it.

I'm looking forward to First Things, too.  Except, the price of the whole Master Journal bundle is just a little more than twice First Things by itself.  So I may go that route anyway.

What would go great in a Catholic Journal Bundle would be Origins.  I'd definitely love to see that.  I'm not sure CNS would go for it, but it's nice to dream. Smile

So many good options, CBQ and Biblica catching my eye right away, but several others looked fascinating!

Available for Verbum already, we have (but not yet bundled together):

First Things - https://verbum.com/products/49485/first-things (1990-2014 - 248 issues) - https://verbum.com/products/55479/first-things-update-issues-249-255 (2015 - 7 issues)

Journal of Markets & Morality - https://verbum.com/products/30907/journal-of-markets-and-morality (1998-2012 - 30 issues)

Journal of Moral Theology - https://verbum.com/products/42541/journal-of-moral-theology (2012-2013 - 4 issues)

Letter and Spirit - https://verbum.com/products/151562/letter-and-spirit-collection (2005-2016 - 11 issues)

There's a lot of room for growth.

Yes there is - you are right.  I would really like to see Catholic Biblical Quarterly in Verbum.  It's been around for almost 80 years. 

Theological Studies is another one I would want.  Also a well established Catholic Journal from the Jesuits in the U.S.  There is a lot of this one on line already.

We need to work on getting these.  There are more (see the wiki link I posted a few years ago).

Maybe Craig will see this thread.

I'm not a Catholic, but I'd be interested in CBQ and perhaps Biblica. Biblica's free on the web, so one would imagine that securing rights shouldn't be too difficult.

The Bible Today, edited by Rev. Donald Senior, is a wonderful academic scripture publication. It is referenced almost 1,000 times in my library searching for Footnote Text.

Fr. Senior's bio is very impressive - 

Donald Senior, C.P., holds a Licentiate in theology (S.T.L.) from the University of Louvain, Belgium and a Doctorate in New Testament Studies (S.T.D.) from the University of Louvain. He has pursued further graduate studies at Hebrew Union College, Cincinnati, Ohio and at Harvard University. Fr. Senior served as President of CTU for 23 years, retiring in July 2013. On April 27, 2015, he was named Chancellor by the CTU Board of Trustees.

A frequent lecturer across the country, Fr. Senior also serves on numerous boards and commissions. He is past President of the Association of Theological Schools of the United States and Canada. In 2001, Pope John Paul II appointed him as a member of the Pontifical Biblical Commission and was reappointed in 2006 and 2008 by Pope Benedict XVI. He has been active in interreligious dialogue, particularly with the Jewish and Muslim communities.

Fr. Senior is the General Editor of The Bible Today and co-editor of the twenty-two volume international commentary series New Testament Message. He is the General Editor of The Catholic Study Bible (Oxford University Press, 1990). He has authored and edited several books and articles.

Donald Senior is a member of the following professional associations: The Catholic Biblical Association of America; The Society of Biblical Literature; Studiorum Novi Testamenti Societas; The Chicago Society of Biblical Research; The Catholic Theological Society of America; The International Association of Missiological Studies; Pax Christi International.

He has served as an official representative to the Southern Baptist/Roman Catholic Scholars Dialogue, sponsored jointly by the National Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Southern Baptist Convention. Fr. Senior just recently ended his term as President of the Association of Theological Schools of the United States and Canada. He is a member of the Board of Directors for Sadlier Publishing Company; the Board of Advisors of the Auburn Center for Theological Education; and the Advisory Committee of the Henry Luce III Fellowship program; and serves on the Executive Committee of the Association of Theological Schools of the United States and Canada. In 1994 he was awarded the Jerome Award for outstanding scholarship by the Catholic Library Association of America. In 1996, the National Catholic Education Association awarded him the Bishop Loras Lane Award for his outstanding contribution to theological education. He is a past President of the Catholic Biblical Association of America (1997-98).

It should also be fairly simple to get the English edition of Nova et Vetera, produced by the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology, with which Verbum has a special partnership. Non-Catholic scholars who have published articles and/or reviews in it include Ben Witherington III, Michael Gorman, Richard Baukham, Hans Boersma, and Gilbert Meilander.

Thanks for the feedback about the journals everyone.

Steve, yes, I almost always see the posts but don't always get a chance to respond right away.

For a more academic audience, Theological StudiesCommunioCatholic Biblical Quarterly, and Catholic Historical Review would, if rights were no obstacle, form the core of an academic journal offering.

For a more lay/popular/educated audience, journals/magazines like America, Commonweal, and First Things (which we already have quite a bit of).  The Tablet would be great to have too (it's UK-based).

Please keep adding thoughts and suggestions to this thread.  We've started to discuss a Verbum/Catholic journal offering internally at Faithlife.  No timeline whatsoever at this point, but I can say that this is definitely on the radar for a possible future project.

I suggest also Nova et Vetera, The Thomist, Antiphon, and perhaps the American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly, The Heythrop Journal, and New Blackfriars.

Clergy in particular would likely appreciate Homiletic and Pastoral Review, particularly the archive from before it became online-only.

Another journal I would highly recommend is Logos: A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies. More information can be found here

'Logos: A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies, published in Canada from 1950 and distributed around the world, is the oldest journal in Eastern Christian Studies in North America. It is published twice yearly in two double volumes, and features leading scholarship from around the world. It is a juried journal that publishes in three languages: English, French, and Ukrainian. Abstracts of past issues are available here

...

Published by the Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky Institute of Eastern Christian Studies and the Yorkton Province of the Ukrainian Redemptorists. © Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky Institute of Eastern Studies.

The Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky Institute of Eastern Christian Studies publishes a tri-lingual (English, French, Ukrainian) theological review, Logos: A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies. It is published with the assistance of the Yorkton Province of the Ukrainian Redemptorists. Logos is devoted to Eastern Christian Studies, emphasizing both Orthodox and Catholic Eastern Churches, with a special, but not exclusive interest in the Church of Kyiv. It is a refereed journal, and abstracted in Religion Index One. The Logos Editorial Board includes the Editorial Committee and outside members chosen from various constituencies, together with internationally renowned specialists in Eastern Christian Studies. The journal was founded in 1950 by the late Metropolitan Maxim Hermaniuk, and was published in Yorkton, Saskatchewan until 1983. The new series of Logos began with Vol. 34 (published in Ottawa in 1993).'
