Chauncey Diego Francisco Handy
BA, Seattle Pacific University / MDiv, Duke Divinity School / MA, Hebrew University of Jerusalem / PhD, Princeton Theological Seminary (Present)
Chauncey’s identity as a Chicano frames his research on the nature of ethnicity and belonging in the book of Deuteronomy. With Latinx concepts of identity, theories of ethnicity, and tools of historical criticism he explores the Pentateuch’s complex relationship to forming ancient Israelite/Jewish ethnicity. Ordained in the PC(USA) and writing in Spanish and English, Chauncey encourages the church and academy to help create a just society by celebrating the distinctiveness of all backgrounds, heritages, and languages.
