Having spent most of his life in the academic world of theology and administration, Robert Sloan has written numerous articles on New Testament content, and, among many contributions to various articles and volumes, he was a contributor to the New Living Translation of the Bible, I and II Corinthians. His dissertation, The Favorable Year of the Lord, was a text that has often been quoted and also used as a textbook. Though it is out of print now, there are plans to revise and reprint this popular text. A more complete list of contributions may be found in his curriculum vitae.

With many colleagues, Sloan was an author of two highly regarded, visionary documents in higher education. At Baylor University he facilitated Baylor 2012, a visionary plan that mapped the future progress of Baylor, and at Houston Baptist University, he, with colleagues, produced The Ten Pillars, another visionary document focused upon the future.
