About Dr. Bob Rogers


BobSideSmileI am a hospital chaplain in Mississippi, and an adjunct history professor (online). Before that, I was a Baptist pastor for 33 years in Mississippi and Georgia.

I have a B.A. in English from Mississippi College, an M.Div. in Biblical Studies and Th.D. in church history from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. I like to review Christian and history books, write about theology and practical Christian living, particularly the subject of prayer, and I love to hear and tell funny stories. For ten years, I wrote a column that was published in a few newspapers, called “Holy Humor,” with light-hearted true stories about church life. You can find many of those stories on this blog. I love all kinds of spectator sports, and I’m an avid cyclist.

My wife Mary and I have been married for 33 years, and we have two married daughters, a son in college, and two grandchildren.

  1. Thank you for sharing, and God bless you. I am a recent seminary graduate (Asbury Theological Seminary, Orlando, FL campus), and I am currently a pastoral intern at Faith Assembly of God in Orlando.

  2. Dad, now you should add you have a grandson! =)

  3. Your site is referenced by Pastor Waters at FBC Statesboro. I don’t know if it is a problem with my computer or with yours but the security tapes of Jennifer Aniston do not go along with the message of Christian Muslims nor your About Bob Rogers page. Please check it out and let me know if it is my computer or yours. Thank you Judy

  4. Judy, I looked on the site but I don’t see any security tapes of Jennifer Aniston, so I’m not sure what you are referencing.

  5. Dr. Rogers,

    Thank you for stopping by and praying with dad (Clyde). It was most appreciated!

    Have a blessed day and thank you for you ministry!

    Rev. Clyde E. Slatten, Sr. and family

  6. Brother Clyde, you are very welcome!

  7. Hi Bob, My 1984 Thompson chain reference NIV bought in that year is out for it’s second rebind.
    I was 27 when I bought it……The year I was saved.
    Now I am 57.
    I live in the UK and have just ordered a1985 NIV study bible from the USA to complement the Thompson.
    Memorising scripture is vital and the 1984 is in my head.
    Looking forward to getting them both soon.
    I use a kindle and having no digital download is frustrating.
    Although carrying a Bible is a great witness!
    God Bless. Kelvin

  8. Hello Kelvin. I know what you mean. I memorized the Sermon on the Mount in the 1984 NIV, and when I tried to learn it in another translation, I got confused, so I just returned to the 1984 NIV. By the way, you can get the 1984 NIV downloaded on your Kindle if you get the Kindle edition of the NIV Teen Study Bible, the one copyrighted in 2010. It is still for sale on Amazon, and was done before the 2011 NIV was published, so it uses the 1984 NIV translation. I downloaded it myself in order to have the 1984 NIV on my Kindle. Here’s the link: http://www.amazon.com/Teen-Study-Bible-International-Version-ebook/dp/B003OUXB5Y/ref=sr_1_6_twi_1_kin?ie=UTF8&qid=1427842836&sr=8-6&keywords=NIV+Teen+Study+Bible

    • Thanks Bob, i managed to download the 1984 niv from davids megabible site tonight.
      Amazon.co.uk do not have the teen bible. God Bless. Kelvin

  9. Sorry ‘ David’s bible megasite’
    A bit long winded to use but functional.
