Almost every morning on the way to work I listen to John Michael Talbot. He is one of the great Catholic voices of our times - not just as a musician, but through his speeches and writings. I highly encourage you to seek him out and engage him to inspire your parish or group. Matthew Kelly NY Times Best Selling Author, Founder of The Dynamic Catholic Institute

I first saw John Michael Talbot in concert 37 years ago. It was truly a life-changing experience. And I was able to see him LIVE again. I truly believe God is using JMT in new and powerful ways... RIGHT NOW. Go and see for yourself. This is a rare and unique time to see a rare and unique musical talent - and a true minister of the gospel. A Troubadour for the Lord!  Tom Booth Dove / Grammy Award Nominated Recording Artist / Oregon Catholic Press
