Print Friendly, PDF & Email

How to Read the Bible Like a Seminary Professor: A Practical and Entertaining Exploration of the World’s Most Famous Book releases on March 3, 2015. This book is the first Bible reference work (1) that I have ever read cover to cover, and (2) that has ever made me laugh out loud.  Recently, the book’s author, DTS academic dean Dr. Mark Yarbrough, took some time to talk about this new resource.
