Dr. Reggie Williams Publishes New Book on Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Dr. Williams’ newest book is titled Bonhoeffer’s Black Jesus: Harlem Renaissance Theology and An Ethic of Resistance. Published by Baylor University Press, it is due out on October 1, and is currently available for pre-order through Baylor Press

Dr. Williams’ research interests are primarily focused on Christological hermeneutics, and Christian morality. He has a particular interest in how the Western-world understanding of Christian has been calibrated to a false ideal that corresponds with racialized interpretations of humanity, morality, and Jesus. His current projects include an analysis of the developments within Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s theology and ethics, as a result of his experience in the Harlem Renaissance, 1930-31.

Dr. Williams received his Ph.D. in Christian ethics at Fuller Theological Seminary in 2011. His dissertation was entitled: “Christ-Centered Empathic Resistance: The Influence of Harlem Renaissance Theology on the Incarnational Ethic of Dietrich Bonhoeffer.” He earned a Master’s degree in Theology from Fuller in 2006 and a Bachelor’s degree in Religious Studies from Westmont College in 1995. He was a Dissertation Fellow with the Fund for Theological education, and is a member of the American Academy of Religion and the Society for Christian Ethics. 

McCormick is proud to have Dr. Williams as a member of the faculty.
