At a time in which some within the African American community are questioning the place of the Christian faith in the struggle for justice, New Testament scholar McCaulley argues that reading Scripture from the perspective of Black church tradition is invaluable for connecting with a rich faith history and addressing the urgent issues of our times. He advocates for a model of interpretation that involves an ongoing conversation between the collective Black experience and the Bible, in which the particular questions coming out of Black communities are given pride of place and the Bible is given space to respond by affirming, challenging, and, at times, reshaping Black concerns. McCaulley demonstrates this model with studies on how Scripture speaks to topics often overlooked by white interpreters, such as ethnicity, political protest, policing, and slavery. Ultimately McCaulley calls the church to a dynamic theological engagement with Scripture, in which Christians of diverse backgrounds dialogue with their own social location as well as the cultures of others. \u003cem\u003eReading While Black\u003c\/em\u003e moves the conversation forward.\u003c\/div\u003e","published_at":"2020-09-10T00:53:23+10:00","created_at":"2020-09-10T00:53:23+10:00","vendor":"IVP Academic","type":"Bible Study \u0026 Reference","tags":["batchzero"],"price":12700,"price_min":12700,"price_max":12700,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":36128084754593,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"083085486X","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"Reading While Black: African American Biblical Interpretation as an Exercise in Hope","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":12700,"weight":293,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"978083085486"}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0477\/5051\/2801\/products\/51HOWdvDmeL._SX331_BO1_204_203_200.jpg?v=1599663203"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0477\/5051\/2801\/products\/51HOWdvDmeL._SX331_BO1_204_203_200.jpg?v=1599663203","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":null,"id":11123897696417,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.667,"height":499,"width":333,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0477\/5051\/2801\/products\/51HOWdvDmeL._SX331_BO1_204_203_200.jpg?v=1599663203"},"aspect_ratio":0.667,"height":499,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0477\/5051\/2801\/products\/51HOWdvDmeL._SX331_BO1_204_203_200.jpg?v=1599663203","width":333}],"content":"\u003ch3\u003eReading While Black: African American Biblical Interpretation as an Exercise in Hope\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp id=\"b\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \n\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n \u003cul class=\"a\"\u003e\n \u003c\/ul\u003e\u003cdiv id=\"iframeContent\" dir=\"auto\"\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eGrowing up in the American South, Esau McCaulley knew firsthand the ongoing struggle between despair and hope that marks the lives of some in the African American context.\u003c\/strong\u003e A key element in the fight for hope, he discovered, has long been the practice of Bible reading and interpretation that comes out of traditional Black churches.

Reading While Black: African American Biblical Interpretation as an Exercise in Hope

Growing up in the American South, Esau McCaulley knew firsthand the ongoing struggle between despair and hope that marks the lives of some in the African American context. A key element in the fight for hope, he discovered, has long been the practice of Bible reading and interpretation that comes out of traditional Black churches. This ecclesial tradition is often disregarded or viewed with suspicion by much of the wider church and academy, but it has something vital to say. Reading While Black is a personal and scholarly testament to the power and hope of Black biblical interpretation. At a time in which some within the African American community are questioning the place of the Christian faith in the struggle for justice, New Testament scholar McCaulley argues that reading Scripture from the perspective of Black church tradition is invaluable for connecting with a rich faith history and addressing the urgent issues of our times. He advocates for a model of interpretation that involves an ongoing conversation between the collective Black experience and the Bible, in which the particular questions coming out of Black communities are given pride of place and the Bible is given space to respond by affirming, challenging, and, at times, reshaping Black concerns. McCaulley demonstrates this model with studies on how Scripture speaks to topics often overlooked by white interpreters, such as ethnicity, political protest, policing, and slavery. Ultimately McCaulley calls the church to a dynamic theological engagement with Scripture, in which Christians of diverse backgrounds dialogue with their own social location as well as the cultures of others. Reading While Black moves the conversation forward.
