Bob has written many books and articles including Clash of Visions: Populism and Elitism in New Testament Theology and the Letters to Timothy and Titus. He is also a professor of both Greek and New Testament at Covenant Theological Seminary, where he is known for regaling students with stories of his lumberjack days, and gracing a few lucky with a glimpse at his ax collection. Dan and Bob chat about what it looks like, regardless of white and blue-collar vocations, Dr. Yarbrough demonstrates, both through his own experiences and his study of the new testament, a vision of work that is rooted in discipline and endurance.
