Overview


John Warwick Montgomery is considered to be one of the foremost living apologists for classical, biblical Christianity. A renaissance scholar with a flair for controversy, he lives in France, England and the United States. His international activities have brought him into personal contact with some of the most exciting events of our time: not only was he in China In June 1989, but he was In Fiji during its 1987 bloodless revolution, was involved in assisting East Germans to escape during the time of the Berlin Wall, and was in Paris during the revolutionary ""days of May"" 1968. He has had personal contact with world leaders such as President Anwar Sadat of Egypt and English Prime Minister Tony Blair. He has been centrally involved in evangelical and Lutheran church affairs such as the Wenham conference on the authority of Scripture and the inerrancy controversies in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. His public debates with atheist Madalyn Murray O'Hair, Bishop James Pike, death-of-God advocate Thomas Altizer, and situation-ethicist Joseph Fletcher are historic. His wife is the internationally-celebrated orchestral harpist Lanalee de Kant. Dr. Montgomery is the author or editor of more than fifty books in five languages. He holds ten earned degrees, Including a Master of Philosophy in Law from the University of Essex, England, a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago, a Doctorate of the University in Protestant Theology from the University of Strasbourg, France, and the higher doctorate in law (LL.D.) from the University of Cardiff, Wales. He is an ordained Lutheran clergyman, an English barrister, an avocat au Barreau de Paris, France, and is admitted to practise as a lawyer before the Supreme Court of the United States. He obtained acquittals for the ""Athens 3"" missionaries on charges of proselytism at the Greek Court of Appeals in 1986 and won the leading religious liberty cases of Larissis v. Greece and Bessarabian Orthodox Church v. Moldova before the European Court of Human Rights. Professor Montgomery's autobiography offers an opportunity for the reader to meet one of the most fascinating figures in the contemporary church--to understand how he attained his influence in so many diverse areas of modern life--and to comprehend the Christ-centered philosophy of life that has motivated all of his activities. This autobiography manifests the author's willingness to speak frankly about those with whom he has agreed and disagreed and is lightened with his well-known sense of humour Readers have a remarkable--and unique--treat in store for them.
