Reading While Black

Esau McCaulley, as Assistant Professor of New Testament at Wheaton College, and ACNA priest, has a book titled Reading While Black: African American Biblical Interpretation and an Exercise in Hope. It looks good and I intend on reading it. As a preview of his message, I want to point to his New York Times Opinion piece titled ‘What the Bible Has to Say About Black Anger’. He looks at lament and imprecatory psalms, including Psalm 137, which is one of the first passages from the Bible I have my students read in my class ‘The Hebrew Scriptures’.
