#35. Dr. Jennifer Kaalund: Negotiating Identity

Dr. Jennifer Kaalund (womanist scholar, Iona College faculty) helps us understand how identities are negotiated, especially for early Jesus followers. She unpacks the complex identities that made up the recipients of Hebrews and 1 Peter, seeing parallels with the African American Great Migration. Along the way, she helps us understand some of the ugliest passages in the Christian scriptures.

To hear more from her, check out her book, Reading Hebrews and 1 Peter with the African American Great Migration, or find her commentaries on Working Preacher.
