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.

Review of THE GIFT AND THE DEFENDER (THE LUMEN LEGENDS SERIES – BOOK 1) by Tyrel Bramwell, Grail Quest Books, 2016

As one begins to move through Tyrel Bramwell’s THE GIFT AND THE DEFENDER, the reader is pulled in, wondering how the two timelines or worlds the author offers could possibly relate. We are introduced to a familiar, modern-day world via a character bestowed with a staggering power. But we also get to know another individual and his allies in a Medieval-like, fantasy setting.

Bramwell does not disappoint. Without spoiling anything, the reader discovers the truth, and is set on a fascinating path. The book serves up a great deal about human nature, as well as being rich with biblical allegories. THE GIFT AND THE DEFENDER manages to be both thought-provoking and a true page-turner. The reader will be delighted, especially, for this reader, over the second-half of the book. In the end, Bramwell offers the rare combination of imaginative, substantive, and fun. Well done!
