More than 500 years ago, two men tried to bring about change in the Catholic Church. They suffered, with one burned at the stake. Could a modern-day pope transform these reformers from heretics to heroes in the eyes of the Catholic Church? Shadowy figures inside and outside The Vatican oppose Pope Paul VII’s efforts, and stand willing to do anything to stop him. For help, the pope turns to Stephen Grant, a Lutheran pastor, former Navy SEAL and onetime CIA operative.
On the Pastor Stephen Grant thrillers and mysteries by Ray Keating…
“…exhilarating… ” – Kirkus Reviews
“I miss Tom Clancy. Keating fills that void for me.” – Lutheran Book Review
“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.” – The Washington Times
“Here is a fun adventure romp… Stephen Grant is an ex-CIA agent with notches on his pistol who, with a little bit of angst, turns his back on his secret life and becomes, get this, a pastor of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. We first meet Grant as he dispatches an opposing agent within the nave of a French Catholic church (because for discreet meetings between rival spies, the empty churches of Europe are ideal).” – FirstThings.com
“This is a fun read, though the embedded theology is real and salutary.” – Touchstone magazine
“Pastor Grant continues to be one of the most entertaining heroes in the political thrillers and suspense genre.” – Self-Publishing Review
“Ray Keating is a great novelist.” - Pastor Rod Zwonitzer, host of KFUO radio’s BookTalk
