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

Dr. McCaulley’s second book is Reading While Black: African American Biblical Interpretation as an Exercise in Hope (Nov 2020 IVP academic). Reading While Black looks at the tradition of African American biblical interpretation and argues that Bible reading has often functioned as a a source of hope in the Black community. He also contends that the Bible rightly understood and read from a decidedly black perspective can speak a word of hope to African Americans today.
