Esau McCaulley: How Far to the Promised Land

Kankelfritz and Friends talk to Esau McCaulley, associate professor of New Testament at Wheaton College, theologian in residence at Progressive Baptist Church, and author of "How Far to the Promised Land: One Black Family's Story of Hope and Survival in the American South." He discusses how doing the eulogy for his addict father's funeral helped him understand his father's origin story, how he wrestled with reconciling his father's salvation with the damage he did prior to coming to Jesus, and the lengths his mother went to to provide for the family after leaving his father.
