Dr. Esau McCaulley

Rev. Dr. Esau McCaulley completed his Ph.D. in New Testament at the University of St Andrews where he studied under the direction of N.T. Wright. His research and writing focuses on Pauline theology and the intersection of race, Christian identity, and the pursuit of justice.

His book Sharing in the Son’s Inheritance focuses on the role Jewish messianism played in Paul’s argument that Jesus has made believers heirs in the Messiah to the Abrahamic promises in Galatians. He is also the author of the award-winning book, Reading While Black: African-American Interpretation as an Exercise in Hope, in which he 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. Alongside these more academic works, he also writes popular pieces for numerous outlets including Christianity Today, The Washington Post, and The Witness: A Black Christian Collective.

Dr. McCaulley is also the Director of Next Generation Leadership for the ACNA (Anglican Church in North America), a province-wide initiative committed to raising up and training the next generation of Anglican clergy and lay leadership. He is married to Mandy, a pediatrician and a navy reservist. Together, they have four wonderful children.
