I have been fortunate to share a planet with great writers, speakers, and teachers - from Tony Campolo and Ron Sider to the late Mike Yaconelli.  Bert Montgomery has the same skills and gifts of bringing alive a message of life, love, faith, and culture as the above mentioned men.  With humor and insight, Bert connects the person in the pulpit to the person in the pew, auditorium or classroom, and does so in a way that sends one out the door thinking, "I can make God's creation a better place with my life."
