Angela Parker – If God Still Breathes, Why Can’t I?

Episode: Erin Heim speaks with Dr. Angela Parker about White Christianity’s tendency to conflate biblical authority with inerrancy and infallibility, gaslighting and women in the Gospels, the Galatians’ experience, and Tobe Nwigwe’s “Make it Home.” She also distinguishes between an authoritative and an authoritarian Bible.

She’s the author of If God Still Breathes, Why Can’t I: Black Lives Matter and Biblical Authority (Eerdmans, 2021). Her forthcoming book is entitled Bodies, Violence, & Emotions: A Womanist Study of the Gospel of Mark.  She is co-chair for the Paul and Politics Seminar of the Society of Biblical Literature and is a committee member of American Academy of Religion’s Status of Racial and Ethnic Minorities Committee (see her Mercer University page for more detail).
