Wayne W. Martin holds the Bachelor of Arts Degree from Wheaton College, Illinois; and the Masters of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees from Boston University. He taught in public schools and was a language arts specialist for four years prior to beginning his graduate studies. It was his work in the educational system that sparked his interest in a Bible translation for young readers.
Dr. Martin has also served pastorates in Washington, California, and Massachusetts. He is now pastor of St. Luke's United Church of Christ in Philadelphia, where he lives with his wife, Nancy, and their four children. (biography from the 1984 edition of The Gospel of Mark)
