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.

Character Named After You in Pastor Stephen Grant Novel!

Would You Like to Be Immortalized in a Pastor Stephen Grant Novel?

Well, “immortalized” might be a bit much, but you can have a character named after you or a loved one in an upcoming Pastor Stephen Grant novel by Ray Keating.

We’re running a special event from now until New Year’s Day. If you order TWO signed sets of all seven Pastor Stephen Grant novels – perhaps a set for yourself and a gift set, or two gift sets – then Ray will name a character after you or a person of your choice in an upcoming book. Might be a good guy or a bad guy – but it’ll be fun and exciting.

Remember, orders have to be for TWO signed sets ordered on or before New Year’s Day (you can buy the two sets in one order or in separate orders between December 1 and January 1) at

Reading for the Advent and Christmas Season? Perfect Time for Ray Keating’s AN ADVENT FOR RELIGIOUS LIBERTY, and a Perfect Time for a Kindle Sale!

Price slashed by more than 40%

It’s supposed to be a special season for Christians. But it’s different this time in New York City. In AN ADVENT FOR RELIGIOUS LIBERTY: A PASTOR STEPHEN GRANT NOVEL, religious liberty is under assault.

Praise has come from many corners, including…

"This series is a more edifying and Christian-oriented spy/adventure series with a similar pace (and sometimes the vocabulary of the bad guys) as books by C. J. Box, Craig Johnson ... and the work of Tom Clancy... Ray Keating has a knack for writing on topics that could be pulled from tomorrow's headlines. An atheist mayor-elect of NYC? I could envision that. Pastor Grant taking out a terrorist? I could see that." - Lutheran Book Review
