eBookElvis, Willie, Jesus, & Me eBook • $5.99
Elvis, Willie, Jesus, & Me is a collection of short observations and reflections on life, society, faith, and church, with a rock-and-roll attitude. These reflections and observations cover everything from pain to politics, from cursing to prayer and family board games. Oh, and a whole lot about God, love, Jesus, and grace.
Growing up outside the church in Washington, D.C., I had the typical stereotype of a Southern evangelical Christian—a stereotype that seems to have made quite a resurgence in the last twenty years. Having made my home in the South, it is people like Bert Montgomery who keep me from feeling like an outsider, and who remind me that evangelical doesn’t have to be a dirty word, but one that I can claim humbly for myself.
Bassist for the Allman Brothers Band
Bert Montgomery’s entertaining book ranges across pop culture: the music, the people, the contradictions, and the God who shows up. His perky, prickly insight will grab you by the throat and the heart.

I can imagine Elvis, Willie, Jesus and Me as the result of C.S. Lewis and Lewis Grizzard getting together to write essays about the religious implications of Scrubs, Beale Street, Sweeney Todd, LSU, The X-Files, Harry Potter, Killer Tomatoes, and Jungian Jambalaya. I wish Elvis was around to read it. Has someone sent Willie a copy?
