Arnold Palmer, RIP

I feel tremendously sad at the passing of Arnold Palmer. My grandfather instilled the love of golf in me, and watching Arnold Palmer as a youngster only enhanced that love. He not only was a great golfer, but a man of integrity and character. He made golf what it is today. He will be missed. Prayers for his family and friends.

BIG SALE ON SIGNED COPIES OF RAY KEATING’S PASTOR STEPHEN GRANT NOVELS!

BIG SALE ON SIGNED COPIES OF RAY KEATING’S PASTOR STEPHEN GRANT NOVELS!
Up to 47% off award-winning novelist Ray Keating’s Pastor Stephen Grant thrillers – MURDERER’S ROW, THE RIVER, AN ADVENT FOR RELIGIOUS LIBERTY, ROOT OF ALL EVIL? and WARRIOR MONK. These exciting, thoughtful novels focus on a onetime Navy SEAL and former CIA operative who is now a pastor. 
Previously each book sold for $12.99-$17.99. Now each is only $9.99 for a limited time, with the author’s message and signature. And all five can be purchased as a set of only $44.99 (previously sets were $75.99).
With Keating’s next thriller coming soon, this is the perfect time to see why these books have received widespread praise…
Not only was MURDERER’S ROW: A PASTOR STEPHEN GRANT NOVEL named “Book of the Year 2015” by KFUO’s “BookTalk,” but Kirkus Reviews says, “Action fans will find plenty to love here, from gunfights and murder sprees to moral dilemmas.” For good measure, Kirkus Reviews gives a big thumbs up to THE RIVER: “A gritty, action-stuffed, well-considered thriller with a gun-toting clergyman.”
And consider from a Washington Times review 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.”
Lutheran Book review declares, “I miss Tom Clancy. Keating fills that void for me.”
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.”
Finally, Marvin Olasky, editor-in-chief of WORLD magazine, lists Ray Keating among his top 10 Christian novelists.
