eBookOf Mice and Ministers eBook • $8.99
Guns N’ Roses. Jaws. The Statler Brothers. A dead Trappist monk and a living Baptist heretic. With stories about pains, joys, and everyday life, Of Mice and Ministers finds Jesus in some unlikely places and challenges us to do the same. From tattooed women ministers to saying the “N”-word to the brotherly kiss, Bert Montgomery takes seriously the lesson from Psalm 139—where can one go that God is not already there?
No one listens better for the voice of God in the noise and clatter of life than Bert Montgomery.
—Michael A. Smith
Senior pastor, Central Baptist Church of Fountain City and Co-author of Mount and Mountain
With wry humor and ridiculous puns, Bert Montgomery’s writing delivers a chuckle, but you may also find yourself surprised by the sharp edges of the gospel poking through his stories and deflating your pipe dreams of what it means to be a follower of Jesus. . . . He spins every tale in the light of God’s mercy and grace and leaves his readers with lots to ponder.
Practical Theologian and Co-director of the Learning Pastoral Imagination Project
For Bert Montgomery, revelation is not confined to domesticated readings of popular Bible verses. In Of Mice and Ministers, he invites complicated biblical characters and earthy people into conversation with contemporary issues and cultural icons. With both humor and poignancy, Bert shares his pastoral imagination and his keen eye for seeing the holy all around us.
—Dalen C. Jackson
Academic Dean and Professor of Biblical Studies
Baptist Seminary of Kentucky
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.”
Lead singer, Dead Artist Syndrome
[Bert’s] wit and insights are as refreshing as hand-churned ice cream—a delight to savor.
