Protesters took to the street this week after an unarmed black man, George Floyd was killed by police in Minneapolis. The incident has brought the issue of racism to the forefront of the American dialogue. Ed Stetzer talks with Wheaton College New Testament Assistant Professor Esau McCaulley about what the Bible says about racism.
The Rev. Esau McCaulley, PhD has served in many professional and cultural contexts throughout his ministerial career and academic career. His research and writing focuses on Pauline theology and the intersection of race, Christian identity, and the pursuit of justice. His book, Reading While Black, 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.
Ed Stetzer wears a lot of hats—author, speaker, researcher, pastor, church planter—as he helps Christians learn to share Christ. Ed has earned two master’s degrees and two doctorates, and has written or co-written a dozen books and hundreds of articles. Now he ministers as interim pastor of The Moody Church, teaches at Wheaton College, and serves as executive director of the Billy Graham Center and a regional director of Lausanne North America.
