Pastor Stephen Grant?

Stephen Grant is the pastor at St. Mary’s Lutheran Church on eastern Long Island. Grant is one of the more unique second-career clergy around, as he once worked for the CIA. Besides theology, his interests include archery, golf, writing, classic films, the beach, poker, baseball, and history. Grant also knows his wines, champagnes and brews. Oh yes, he generally dislikes politicians, and happens to be an expert marksman with a handgun and a rifle, while being pretty handy with a combat knife as well.

Reader/Reviewer Quote of the Day

Reader/Reviewer Quote of the Day:

Espionage, romance, murder, Islamist terrorism, environmental extremists, church suppers, New York cops, revisionist theology, adultery, religious reactionaries, divorce, papal missions, organized crime, the press conference Mrs. Spitzer did not give, every congregation's usual suspects, conspiracy, the obligations of chastity, sleazy politicians, the geography of Long Island, police procedural, camaraderie among the clergy, obnoxious news media types, Christian ethics, the new ecumenism, and the real housewives of the Suffolk County suburbs… all in one single novel? Well, yes. Veteran business journalist (and, let us mention in the interest of full disclosure, an ALPB board member) Ray Keating has combined them all in his first work of fiction, Warrior Monk, a trail of tears and laughter up and down the Long Island Expressway.
