Best-selling novelist Paul L. Maier said, "ROOT OF ALL EVIL? is an extraordinarily good read... Ray Keating writes brilliantly and convincingly. Violating all rules of physics, he can turn novels of paper into iron magnets that you cannot put down."
Keating said, “Since I wrote WARRIOR MONK, I’ve received surprising feedback from members of the clergy who once were in the intelligence community or know fellow pastors who did such work. It’s been fascinating. In ROOT OF ALL EVIL?, Pastor Grant, his family and friends, and some former co-workers have to deal with the consequences of how money, politics and religion mix, for better or for worse.”
Consider praise from assorted reviewers...
"ROOT OF ALL EVIL? is an extraordinarily good read. Only Ray Keating could come up with a character like Pastor Stephen Grant... As trouble mounts in this page-turner, Grant will need both skills - martial and theological - to punish evil and save the good. Even though the Bible says that it's the love of money which is the root of all evil, Grant will find that even a casual appreciation of the U.S. dollar is enough to corrupt church men, government officials, and foreign agents. Yet Grant can also save souls in whatever den of inequity he finds them." - Paul L. Maier, author of A Skeleton in God's Closet, More Than A Skeleton, and The Constantine Codex
"Well written, fast paced, it held my attention well while merging drama, adventure, theology, and economics." - Mary Moerbe, author of Blessed: God's Gift of Love and Family Vocation
"Ray Keating's second Pastor Stephen Grant novel, ROOT OF ALL EVIL?, is a fantastic follow up to Warrior Monk. It's a well crafted political thriller full of intrigue and theological truth. Keating's world has proven profitable for contrasting good theology with bad." - Tyrel Bramwell, author of The Gift and the Defender
"I loved every second of it... This is well done. The character development ... is very nice. The story flows. It's multi-themed... I'm a fan. I'm hooked." - Rod Zwonitzer, host of KFUO's "BookTalk"
"... storylines converge in D.C. with Stephen Grant's CIA past. He is called back into service as an expert shot and has ample opportunity to provide pastoral care." - Lutheran Book Review
