He regularly presents papers on higher critical issues and Ancient Near Eastern backgrounds at scholarly conferences, such as the annual Old Testament Lecture at the Tyndale Fellowship in Cambridge, England.
Dr. Niehaus’ scholarly interests include biblical theology and the idea of covenant and covenant schemes in the Bible.
His personal interests include writing poetry, of which he has written two volumes that are currently under revision; classical music, especially that from the Romantic period; and caring for his younger, bipolar son.
