Angela N. Parker

Faculty

Angela-ParkerDr. Angela N. Parker is assistant professor of New Testament and Greek at McAfee School of Theology. She received her BA in religion and philosophy from Shaw University (2008), her MT from Duke Divinity School (2008-2010) and her PhD in Bible, culture, and hermeneutics (New Testament focus) from Chicago Theological Seminary (2015). In her research, Parker merges Womanist thought and postcolonial theory while reading biblical texts. Parker has two forthcoming books. First, Eerdmans Publishing will release If God Still Breathes, Why Can’t I: Black Lives Matter and Biblical Authority in September 2021 (Amazon and Eerdmans). In this book, Parker draws from her experience as a Womanist New Testament scholar in order to deconstruct one of white Christianity’s most pernicious lies: the conflation of biblical authority with the doctrines of inerrancy and infallibility.
