Dr. McGrew is an Old Testament scholar and specializes in the Book of Job. He is also especially interested in bringing Biblical Studies into a deeper dialogue with the Church's traditional, Christological readings of the Old Testament. He began studying theology and the Bible in its original languages to prepare for the ministry, and he remains focused on fostering prayer through biblical piety.
Dr. McGrew has an article forthcoming with Catholic Biblical Quarterly this July titled, "'What Is Enosh?' The Anthropological Contributions of Job 7:17–18 through Allusion and Intertextuality." He is also working with Cambridge University Press on a book on Job's parabolic dramatization of Israel's scriptural and mythological traditions titled, The Riddle of Job: Allegorical Representation and Argumentation in the Book of Job.
