2015SkinnerTie_bb_I am a seminary professor who writes and teaches about the New Testament. I’m especially interested in how the Bible has shaped, and continues to shape, people’s knowledge of God and their ways of living their Christian faith.

When people read scripture together, they learn about the foundations of their religious beliefs, yet they also learn about one another and the God they follow. The conversations we have around the Bible can transform us, informing our hopes and propelling us to serve and love the wider world.

This website introduces you to the writing and public speaking I do to guide and inform those vital conversations among Christian leaders, churchgoers, and all sorts of interested observers.
