In All Things Podcast releases 30th podcast episode

The In All Things Podcast recently released its 30th podcast episode, which featured Associate Professor of New Testament at Wheaton College Reverend Dr. Esau McCaulley.

The In All Things Podcast features conversations with diverse voices about living creatively in God’s created world. Hosted by Associate Professor of Theology Dr. Justin Ariel Bailey, this podcast complements the creative content found at, the online journal for the Andreas Center at Dordt University.

The 30th episode was special in that it was recorded in-person in front of a live audience on Dordt’s campus, says Bailey.

“I always wish that more people could be part of podcast recordings, beyond just listening to them afterward,” says Bailey. “In this case, the live audience got to listen to my interview and then, in the next hour, were able to ask him questions themselves.”

The episode includes an interview with McCaulley as well as McCaulley reading from his latest book “Lent: A Season of Repentance and Renewal” (InterVarsity Press).

“I have long admired Dr. McCaulley’s writings and public witness, and so it was a treat to get to interview him,” adds Bailey. “It was also great to invite students and other faculty into the room, which gave the episode a wonderful live energy. You can hear the laughter in the background at several points.”

McCaulley is a theologian in residence at Progressive Baptist Church, a historically black congregation in Chicago. He has published several books, including “Sharing in the Son’s Inheritance” (T & T Clark) and “Josey Johnson’s Hair and the Holy Spirit” (InterVarsity Press Kids). “Reading While Black: African American Biblical Interpretation as an Exercise in Hope” (InterVarsity Press Academic) has won numerous awards, including Christianity Today’s Book of the Year. He is a contributing opinion writer for the New York Times. His work has been published in The Atlantic, Washington Post, Christianity Today, New York Times, and more. He also posts regularly on Instagram and Twitter.

The In All Things Podcast averages just under 1,000 downloads per month. Bailey enjoys the privilege of having conversations with authors through the podcast episodes.

“I also enjoy the challenge and blessing of curating a diverse group of guests along three themes: retrieving our tradition, reckoning with our sin, and renewing our imagination,” he says.

The In All Things Podcast is available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and at other podcast streaming services.
