At Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, we're dedicated to learning, serving and leading through rigorous scholarship and a humble approach to Scripture.
Scripture is a foundational tool for discussing and interpreting social issues. Traditional Black churches offer deep scholarship and understanding of Scripture’s views on topics such as ethnicity, policing and slavery, that have often been disregarded by the wider church.
Join Dr. Esau McCaulley as he discusses several talking points from his book, “Reading While Black: African American Biblical Interpretation as an Exercise in Hope,” which encourages the church to engage in dynamic theological dialogue with Christians of diverse backgrounds. During the lecture, the speaker will discuss how the habits, traditions and insights of the African American Christian tradition can speak a relevant word in our day and time.
