Monty Barker was born in Glasgow in 1934. After studying classics he qualified as a doctor, and in 1968 he was appointed as as a consultant psychiatrist to the Bristol United Hospitals. His junior staff and medical students found him an excellent teacher, although at times quite intimidating. He also taught theological students in the UK, Paris and India and was an advisor, counsellor and friend to many, leaving a lasting legacy to the Christian community in many parts of the world.

Montagu Barker was a brilliant Christian psychiatrist whose friends regretted that he did not publish more. The appearance now of some of his best papers is thus very much to be welcomed. 
Jim Packer, Professor of Theology Regent College Vancouver
This is a welcome collection of some of his writings and lectures which are still highly relevant today.
Michael Green, Senior Research Fellow Wycliffe Hall Oxford
I am most grateful to have received the benefit of his breadth of interests and his inimitable qualities of mind, personality and faith. This collection of his writings captures and expresses this for a wider readership. 
Richard Harvey, Senior Researcher Jews for Jesus
I owe Monty an incalculable debt and am delighted to commend this volume to a new generation.
Rico Tice, Senior Minister (Evangelism), All Souls Langham Place, London
Psychiatry has been a turbulent discipline for faint-hearted Christian medics. Yet Monty Barker navigated a channel through the cross-currents, which attracted many to follow in his wake. 
Peter May, Retired GP and Former Chairman Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship
I have carried the profound theological and psychological insights of Monty Barker’s teaching since my student days in Bristol in the 1970s. 
Helen Thorp, Diocese of Durham and Cranmer Hall Theological College
Monty Barker became a wise friend, advisor and counsellor for me as he was to so many. I’m delighted that this collection of his writings is being published.
