"Here is a fun adventure romp, a first novel by former Newsday columnist Ray Keating. 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." - FirstThings.com
"The first of Ray Keating's Pastor Stephen Grant novels, Warrior Monk, catches your attention from page one. It reads like one of Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp adventures, dishing out details and action at a fast pace. And in the midst of that action Keating manages to brilliantly present the reader with thought provoking truths, seemingly little things that aren't pondered nearly enough, such as a note about church architecture or a relational reality particular to men who hold the pastoral office. At other times he deals with larger topics such as church doctrine and practice... It's a spectacular ride steeped in theological intrigue! As a fan of G.K. Chesterton I delighted in the similarities between Keating's Pastor Stephen Grant and Chesterton's Father Brown. In the 20th century, Chesterton, a journalist (among other things), gave the world a detective priest. In the 21st, another journalist (among other things), Keating, gave the world a spy-turned-pastor." - Tyrel Bramwell, author of The Gift and the Defender
"It's got it all: action, intrigue, character development, etc." - Mary Moerbe, author of Blessed: God's Gift of Love and Family Vocation

Thank you, Ray, for your beautifully-written Pastor Stephen Grant novels that are real, enjoyable, thoughtful and extol a growing, sometimes struggling, but very real faith in Christ that we treasure.
I compare Keating to Clive Cussler, Tom Clancy, Larry Bond, and David Baldacci. WARRIOR MONK is very readable, with realistic dialogue, great plot pace, surprising and twists and turns, complex and endearing characters all with a respectfully un-cheesy Christian undertone.
Ladies - Please share these books with your Christian husbands, fathers, sons, and brothers. Bravo!
Oh, and let's not forget a potential love interest.
Good guys, bad guys, looks. They're all here with action to boot.
Did I forget to mention that God and his Son, Jesus run throughout the book in a most delightful way!

Keating does a wonderful job of balancing the theology and actions of the story.
