Martin Davis


Martin is currently a freelance journalist living in Fredericksburg, Virginia. He began as a ministerial student at Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary before transferring to the Graduate Theological Union. He earned his master’s from the university of Chicago under Martin E. Marty. Following a teaching stint at the University of South Carolina. Martin moved to Wasington, DC, where he covered religion and politics for National Journal magazine, and later served as managing editor of Philanthropy magazine. His writings have appeared in the Washington Post, New York Daily News, PGA Tour Magazine and a wide range of online publications.

This blog explores the phenomenon of the “nones,” a name that Martin both embraces and rejects. Despite efforts by religious organiZations and pollsters to name the growing group of people who are turning from organized religion, Martin looks instead to better understand not only what nones embrace, but what they moving away from, and toward. He does this introspectively, augmenting with interesting stories and examples from the culture at large that capture and better define what is really happening to faith in America.
