Dr. Esau McCaulley’s work is at the intersection of the academy and ministry. He has served as a pastor at All Souls Episcopal/Anglican Church in Okinawa, Japan, and assisting priest at All Saints Episcopal Church in St. Andrews, Scotland. He is an Assistant Professor in New Testament at Wheaton College, and is the director of Next Gneration Leadership for the Anglican Church in North America, the ACNA.
His publications include his doctoral dissertation, Sharing in the Son’s Inheritance which focused on the role Jewish messianism played in Paul’s argument that Jesus has made believers heirs in the Messiah to the Abrahamic promises in Galatians. He is the general editor of a forthcoming book, New Testament in Color, which gathers a diverse group of scholars committed to the great tradition who can address the relevance of biblical texts to their communities. He is the host for The Disrupters podcast and is a contributor for Christianity Today, The Washington Post, and The Witness: A Black Christian Collective. Esau is married to Mandy, a pediatrician and a Navy reservist, and they together have four children.
On October 19, Dr. McCaulley will be sharing on his just published book, Reading While Black: African American Biblical Interpretation as an Exercise in Hope. Questions may be submitted and upvoted through Sli.do (Event #87447).
