About Mister j. Snodgrass

Mister j. Snodgrass teaches about religions with a focus on sociology and sex.  He currently lives in Buffalo, NY with his wife and three children, and looks forward to teaching college courses in the fall.

The name for this site, “Mister j. Snodgrass” was chosen to differentiate this Snodgrass from other Snodgrasses – Doctor Snodgrass, Father Snodgrass, the poet Snodgrass and the Bible scholar Snodgrass.  Though a seminary graduate, Snodgrass is proud of his title, “Mister.”

He is the author of five books (available on amazon.com),  and is  currently working on another one.  His available books are:

    Hi, I just attended the interfaith service at Trinity Presbyterian Church where I picked your book Genesis. I could not put it down. Please let me know of any other talks or classes you have coming up.

    I also bought your book Genesis and the Rise of Civilization on amazon.com and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was refreshing, well-researched, thoughtful, and funny. Keep up the good work Mister j!

  4. I just finished Turning the Tables and wanted you to know that I greatly enjoyed it. Your perspectives and analysis were fascinating! Thanks again! Bill Guerrant, White Flint Farm
