Episode 61: Monte Sahlin, Part 2

As I explained in the introduction to Part 1, I used to work for Monte Sahlin at Adventist Today magazine, and when I heard he was retiring from the publication at the end of 2020, I knew I wanted to have him on the podcast to explore his lifetime of service. If you missed the first hour of our conversation in Part 1, I encourage you to listen to it first before moving into this portion of the interview.

Monte Sahlin is an ordained minister who has worked in community development, disaster relief and family counseling for more than 45 years. He is the author of 26 books and more than 120 research monographs. For more than a decade he was an adjunct faculty member in urban studies at Eastern University in Philadelphia and in the Doctor of Ministry program at Andrews University” (Google Books).

He was also the CEO of the Adventist Today Foundation from 2012 until his retirement in December 2020 (AToday).
