The Catholic Biblical Association is pleased to announce CBQ Imprints, a new book series that complements the CBQ Monograph Series.  The new series features studies that range beyond the scope of a monograph on topics related to Old Testament, New Testament, and cognate fields. Readers will appreciate the series’ breadth as long-standing exegetical methods (literary critical as well as historical critical) are featured alongside hermeneutical, interdisciplinary and reception-history approaches. A forum for both single-author books and edited volumes, CBQ Imprints is the latest initiative in ground-breaking biblical research from The Catholic Biblical Association of America.  

For more information about submissions to the series, authors are invited to contact Richard Bautch, the general editor of the series, at

 CBQI Volume 2:

God and Gods in the Deuteronomistic History

Edited by Corrine Carvalho and John L. McLaughlin

Like other constructs in biblical studies, the Deuteronomistic History has come under scrutiny in the 21st century. The books beginning with Joshua and concluding with 2 Kings were thought to be, at their core, a unified explication of Israel's demise in Deuteronomistic terms of sin and its consequences. Current scholarship views these books as more disparate and influenced by a number of different texts, not limited to Deuteronomy. God and Gods in Deuteronomistic History exemplifies the latest research on these Hebrew Scriptures. Each study focuses on the question of how God is disclosed in Israel's history. Contributors look at the topic in a single book to bring forth the richness and variety of the Deity's descriptions. The results show an array of understandings about the divine figure Yhwh, whose titles also include El, El the Living, and Yhwh God in heaven, to name but a few. A strength of this volume is the meticulous analysis of Mesopotamian and West Semitic sources, expressed both textually and in material culture. The biblical writers adopted and adapted these ancient Near Eastern sources to create various pictures of God in the Deuteronomistic History, at times mirroring the deities of the so-called idolatrous religions. This book brings forth portrayals of Israel's God as well as other regional deities in their contiguity and complexity, across the Deuteronomistic History.

The Figure of Jesus in History and Theology:
Essays in Honor of John Meier

Edited by Vincent T.M. Skemp and Kelley Coblentz Bautch

One of the leading Historical Jesus scholars of our time, John Meier has also made significant contributions in the areas of early Judaism and New Testament studies writ large. The Figure of Jesus in History and Theology features more than a dozen prominent scholars who engage Meier’s work and address its reception today. These scholars, whose areas of expertise range from second temple Judaism to early Christianity, revisit, extend, and respond to Meier’s scholarship in ways that allow readers to appreciate anew Meier’s landmark publications. Collectively, these essays cast new light on the question of the Historical Jesus and provide a wealth of insight into John Meier’s body of work as viewed through the lens of contemporary research.
