PTM: Reading While Black with Dr. Esau McCaulley

The Witness

Our guest today is no stranger to many of you! The Rev. Dr. Esau McCaulley, PhD is a New Testament scholar and an Anglican Priest. He is a contributing opinion writer for the New York Times. He has also appeared in outlets such as Christianity Today, Washington Post, and of course, The Witness: BCC. He is also the host of the Disrupters Podcast and functions as a Canon Theologian for his diocese.

Our topic today is his new book Reading While Black: African American Biblical Interpretation as an Exercise in Hope. The book looks at the tradition of African American biblical interpretation and argues that the Bible rightly understood and read from a decidedly black perspective can speak a word of hope to African Americans in the United States.

This is a conversation that you don’t want to miss!


Finally, we don’t want to miss the opportunity to invite you to give to The Witness BCC for our “Will You Be a Witness?” Fundraising Campaign!

The Witness BCC exists to encourage, educate, and empower Black Christians to be free in our souls and bodies. We have accomplished much in our 10 years of existence, but we are just getting started!

These are LOFTY goals, but whatever vision God gives ought to be more than you can accomplish by yourself. That’s why we need YOUR help.
