A well-told story of redemption and the loving power of our living God. As interesting as your life was before knowing Christ, I loved learning about your life after you got saved. You described the works of our wondrous God in the life of a man who was willing to be made new. Very uplifting!

Monty’s story is truly a story of “every man.” His honest transparency draws you into his world and you begin to realize that, despite differing circumstances, his story could be your story. You see how God’s Holy Spirit orchestrated Monty’s life circumstances to bring him to a relationship with Christ, and you realize how God did the same in your life!

Monty’s first of three in The Cowboy Preacher Series is a nice, easy read that tells the story of a California cowboy whose life experience took him through great challenges before being redirected to his true calling in life.

Monty’s story is about trying to be a good husband and father, while providing for his family and following God’s path, all without the normal parental role modeling in his growing-up years. It’s an open and honest story of hard knocks and heartache before spiritual awakening sets in.
