Stephen Colbert’s Favorite Bible Verse

I am a huge fan of Stephen Colbert. I think he’s incredibly smart and incredibly funny. Along with John Stewart, Colbert has elevated satirical humor to the level of art form that Mark Twain would have admired. Plus, you’ve got to admire – or, at least I marvel at – how he has maintained a three-dimensional media persona – and a completely different private (i.e., real) life – for years on end. I can’t wait to see what happens when he goes to the Late Show.

In the meantime, it’s also interesting to know that he’s a faithful Christian. And – if you’ll watch the six-minute interview with Father James Martin below – you’ll hear the bearded Colbert name his favorite saint, favorite Scripture passage (and notice how he whips it out), and favorite hymn. And then you’ll even hear him riff on contemporary hymns. Enjoy.
