Meet Jerry Martin | Hear His Story
God: An Autobiography tells the story of Jerry's mind-opening conversations with God.
The voice announced, “I am God.” For Jerry Martin, that encounter began a personal, intellectual, and spiritual adventure. He had not believed in God. He was a philosopher, trained to be skeptical— to doubt everything. So, his first question was: Is this really God talking?
There were other urgent questions: What will my wife think? Why would God want to talk to me? Does God want me to do something?
He began asking all the questions about life and death and ultimate things to which he—and all of us—have sought answers: Love and loss. Happiness and suffering. Good and evil. Death and the afterlife. The world’s religions. The ways God communicates with us. How to live in harmony with God.
Jerry L. Martin was raised in a Christian home. By the time he left college, he was not a believer.
But he was interested in the big questions and so he studied the great thinkers. He became a philosophy professor and served as head of the philosophy department at the University of Colorado at Boulder and of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
In addition to scholarly articles on epistemology, the philosophy of mind, and public policy, he wrote reports on education that received national attention and was invited to testify before Congress. He stepped down from that career to write this book, following divine guidance.
A philosophy professor, he had a naturalistic worldview that had no place for a divine dimension of any kind.
But one day he had occasion to pray. To his vast surprise, God answered – in words -- with a voice that was “real, benign, and authoritative.”
God: An Autobiography, As Told To A Philosopher
The true story of philosopher Dr. Jerry L. Martin and his conversations with God.

Supported by a global audience and diverse community of seekers, the podcast launched the dramatic adaptation with actor Scott Langdon, producing a continued discussion on spiritual development and God beyond religion, including interviews, dialogues, reactions, and special episodes.
