A Tribute to Dr. Randall Bailey: Biblical Scholar, Intellectual Freedom Fighter and Committed Contrarian

This blog is a repost of a tribute Billy wrote in 2015 in honor of distinguished Biblical Scholar Dr. Randall Bailey. As a former student and teaching assistant of Dr. Bailey, Billy writes about the history of their friendship, Dr. Bailey’s scholarship and his contributions to Church and Society. He writes about the need to have other scholars rise up and take up the work of one of the most legendary black religious scholars of our time.
