About Fr. Endres

"I really enjoy teaching in a school where we deal with academic and religious formation in an ecumenical setting. Going into my twentieth year on the faculty, I marvel at the ways in which we continually develop as a school because of the new faces who come here as students and faculty. It's a delight to be part of this faculty!"

Fr. Endres, Professor of Sacred Scripture at the Jesuit School, teaches courses in Psalms, Wisdom and Deuterocanonical Books, Intertestamental Literature and the Dead Sea Scrolls. He also leads study tours and pilgrimages for his students to places like Turkey and Israel.

Fr. Endres' professional accomplishments include memberships in several associations and committees, among them: the Catholic Biblical Association, Society for the Study of Christian Spirituality and Society of Biblical Literature.
Also active in literary pursuits, Fr. Endres served as associate editor for the Catholic Biblical Quarterly from 1993-2000; has co-authored A Retreat with Psalms: Resources for Personal and Communal Prayer (New York/Mahwah, N.J.: Paulist Press, 2001); Chronicles and Its Synoptic Parallels in Samuel, Kings and Related Biblical Texts (Collegeville, MN: Liturgical Press, 1998); and has published numerous articles in theological publications.
