Michael Brendan Dougherty (The Slurve, National Review) and James Martin (America Magazine, Jesus: A Pilgrimage)

On The Score, Michael talks to the Rev. James Martin, author of the new book Jesus: A Pilgrimage. They discuss how Jesuit scholarship deepened Jim’s faith, and Jim’s experiences on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Michael asks about lessons from the life of Jesus for those opposed to authorities within the Catholic Church. Is Christianity moving towards a synthesis of Sunday School and modern scholarship? They discuss the vagaries of Biblical translation, and Michael argues that internal discrepancies in the Bible can be seen as evidence for divine inspiration. Plus: Do you have to be a nerd to become a Christian?
