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.

2. MURDERER’S ROW: A PASTOR STEPHEN GRANT NOVEL by Ray Keating named “Book of the Year 2015” by “BookTalk” on KFUO Christian radio.
3. On MURDERER’S ROW, Kirkus Reviews says, “Action fans will find plenty to love here, from gunfights and murder sprees to moral dilemmas.” 
4. Kirkus Reviews also gives a big thumbs up to THE RIVER: “A gritty, action-stuffed, well-considered thriller with a gun-toting clergyman.” 
5. THE RIVER: A PASTOR STEPHEN GRANT NOVEL was a “Book of the Year” finalist in 2014.
6. From a Washington Times review of THE RIVER written by a pastor and former CIA officer: “What Ian Fleming's 007 series has probably done for ex-MI-6 agents and Tom Clancy has done for retired CIA officers, Mr. Keating has done for the minority of former CIA agents who have served their country by working in the intelligence community, but now wish to serve God.” 
7. The host of KFUO radio’s “BookTalk,” calls Ray Keating “a great novelist.”
8. A Touchstone magazine review of MURDERER’S ROW says: “This is a fun read, though the embedded theology is real and salutary. There is death and life, adultery and commitment, friendship and betrayal, violence and victory over violence… Perhaps the best part of the book for the reviewer is that the clergy are good at helping people bring Christ into their vocations.”
9. Marvin Olasky, editor-in-chief of WORLD magazine, lists Ray Keating among his top 10 Christian novelists.
10. Lutheran Book Review says: “I miss Tom Clancy. Keating fills that void for me.”

Celebrating the Anniversary of Publishing THE RIVER #6

Celebrating the Anniversary of Publishing THE RIVER

To celebrate, the Kindle price has been slashed nearly 60 percent – from $6.99 to $2.99. This anniversary sale celebration only lasts for this week, so take advantage right now!

From a Washington Times review of THE RIVER: “The book also highlighted my own inner search for truth in having made the transition from being a former active member of the U.S. intelligence community to being a Lutheran pastor. Undeniably, ‘thou shalt not kill’ is an important part of the Bible, but during my own spiritual journey, those words took on a heightened level of contemplation. Mr. Keating's writing does not gloss over how things are and the responses we often hear, and that made the story richer for me because it wasn't neat and sexy like a shaken martini in a James Bond thriller. It was a great blend of so many elements that actually happen in the intelligence community.”

Celebrating the Anniversary of Publishing THE RIVER

To celebrate, the Kindle price has been slashed nearly 60 percent – from $6.99 to $2.99. This anniversary sale celebration only lasts for this week, so take advantage right now!

From a Washington Times review of THE RIVER: “To me as a pastor, one of the interesting points of this story was the accuracy in the complexity of serving God as a Christian leader today. Apart from the espionage and action-oriented references to guns and tactics, there were real life, tear-jerking moments in a couple of instances that reminded me of some struggles that ministers face in sharing loss, grieving families and anger.”
