A recent question was posted by someone looking for essentially a bibliography. A strict reading of our FAQ would indicate that these are off topic since they're not properly about the Bible per se and do not fall under our seeming lone exception for the hermeneutical process itself.
That said, bibliographies are obviously an important part of the field and an expected part of any dictionary or commentary a student of the Bible might read. Given this, I could see a case for allowing these kind of questions. They could certainly add a lot of value for the experts this site is targeting.
On the other hand, I can see it like on Seasoned Advice where they have placed recipe requests off-topic. There do seem to be some similarities there in that it's hard to say that a bibliography as an answer is ever definitive or exhaustive.
My personal (slight) leaning is to allow them for the time being and see if they get good answers. But I wanted to open for discussion.
