John W. Martens, an associate professor of theology at St. Thomas University, is well known to readers of "The God Word." In our latest podcast Prof. Martens reflects on the question, what is the Bible? The answer depends on whether you are Jewish, Catholic, Orthodox or Protestant. Even among English speaking Catholics there is disagreement about which Biblical translation is the best. Professor Martens shares his favorite translation and his favorite book of the Bible. He also explores the deeper question of what it means to say the Bible is inspired by God.
