Samuel Martin was born in England and is the youngest child of Dr. Ernest L. and Helen R. Martin, who are both Americans. He lived in the UK for the first 7 years of his life before moving to the USA with his family at age 7. He lived in the USA until 2001 when he married a native Israeli and relocated to live in Jerusalem. He and his wife, Sonia, have 2 daughters. His experience with biblical scholarship began at an early age. His father initiated a program in conjunction with Hebrew Univ. and Prof. Benjamin Mazar, where over a 5 year period, some 450 college students came to work on an archaeological excavation in Jerusalem starting in 1969. Since that first trip, Samuel has visited Israel on 14 different occasions living more than 16 years of his life in the country. He has toured all areas of Israel as well as worked in several archaeological excavations. Today, he has begun his academic career publishing three books dealing with biblical issues. He writes regularly on biblical subjects with a particular interest in children, families, nature, science and the Bible,and gender in the Biblical context.
