Smashwords Interview

What has Fr. James Martin—as seen on Colbert Report and is a New York Times bestselling author—said about The Gospel of Mark:
“John Martens reminds us that the Gospel of Mark is a dramatic book—with an energetic Jesus moving rapidly from one exciting moment to the next. Martens’ book is a terrific invitation to en-counter Jesus of Nazareth in all his immediacy and excitement. Bringing together deep learning with his trademark flair for clean, clear, direct prose, Martens offers us one of the most creative and innovative books on the Gospel that I've read in years.”
James Martin, SJ (Author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage and editor at large of America magazine)
