In comparison with the fame of their son, Bernard, Viscount Montgomery of Alamein, Henry and Maud Montgomery, leaders in their own right, are largely forgotten. Henry, fourth Anglican Bishop of Tasmania, 1889-1901, proved a dynamic force in the national church, still relevant today. Always energetic, he regularly left Hobart to care for remote West Coast mining communities and the aboriginal people consigned to exile on Cape Barren Island. Maud was an able partner, pioneering ministries in support of vulnerable women and children and Christian education. "Montgomery embodied a new paradigm of 'energetic episcopacy', as this well-researched and thorough study demonstrates, one very different to the prevailing norm in England and Australia." Bishop James Grant, Melbourne. "If only I'd had this fascinating book when I started! I couldn't put it down! 'Leadership' is much in vogue, if too little assessed, but here is a sustained assessment of leadership, both gifted and learnt. We learn of Episcopal leadership in its success and failure, engaging Gospel and culture." John Harrower, 11th Bishop of Tasmania.
