He has taught sociology both at Hanover College and at Bowling Green University. He has written several books on teaching and writing for the sociology discipline.

Review:

“Roberts and Yamane have written a book which has the clearest presentation of sociological concepts of any sociology of relgion text I've read. It is comprehensive in scope, has a clear, lively, and interesting writing style, and is sensitively presented in a "non-preachy" way.”

(Matthew Vos 2011-04-27)

“I have looked at a number of other texts for an introduction to the sociology of religion. Roberts continues to be the best one out there.” (Samuel Inuwa Zalanga 2011-04-27)
