2015SkinnerTie_bb_I am a biblical scholar who serves on a seminary faculty and helps a local congregation live in into new strategies for adult education. I write, teach, and make podcasts about the New Testament and how to interpret it. 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 influence the vital conversations that take place among Christian leaders, churchgoers, and all kinds of interested observers.
