His publishing experience prior to Thomas Nelson includes editorial, project management, copy-editing, proofing, and writing. He has been published by academic journals including the International Journal of Systematic Theology and Anglican Theological Review.

As the associate publisher of Thomas Nelson Bibles, Marrs will be tasked with acquiring and developing authors and titles that have a viable place in the Bible group. He will lead the team in ideation of product proposals and have direct oversight over the editorial development of projects.

John Kramp, s-v-p and Bible publisher for HarperCollins Christian Publishing commented, “The combination of biblical knowledge, publishing experience and team building skills that he has portrayed while part of our Bible publishing program has prepared him for this role. We are excited for Daniel to fulfill this critical role within our organization.”

Marrs will be replacing Robert Sanford, incumbent associate publisher, who announced his plans for retirement earlier this year.
