Please note the forthcoming changes:

  • A new CBA website will be launched this summer. Until it is launched, the portal to access CBQ online is inaccessible.
    We regret any inconvenience this may cause.
  • Beginning this autumn, CBA will no longer be managing subscription services, only memberships (which include a subscription to CBQ).
    • The Catholic Biblical Quarterly (CBQ) and Old Testament Abstracts (OTA) are being handled by CUA Press, beginning with the 2019 volumes.
    • Boston College's School of Theology and Ministry, the publisher of New Testament Abstracts (NTA) is making arrangements for subscription services for NTA.  Once the details have been finalized, NTA subscribers will be notified.
    • CBQ online will only be available to CBA members or through ATLASerials® or JSTOR.

 Thank you for your patience and for your support of the CBA in this time of change
