Religious Liberty Under Attack in an Advent-Christmas Thriller

Religious liberty is under assault in the world of politics. It’s also under attack in the latest exciting thriller from Ray Keating titled AN ADVENT FOR RELIGIOUS LIBERTY: A PASTOR STEPHEN GRANT NOVEL.

Advent and Christmas approach. It’s supposed to be a special season for Christians. But it’s different this time in New York City. The Catholic Church has been called a “hate group.” And it’s the newly elected mayor of New York City who has set off this religious and political firestorm. Some people react with prayer – others with violence and murder.

Stephen Grant, former CIA operative turned pastor, faces deadly challenges during what becomes known as “An Advent for Religious Liberty.” Grant works with the Cardinal who leads the Archdiocese of New York, the FBI, current friends, and former CIA colleagues to fight for religious liberty, and against dangers both spiritual and physical.

AN ADVENT FOR RELIGIOUS LIBERTY: A PASTOR STEPHEN GRANT NOVEL is a thriller torn from today’s headlines. It’s a different, fast-paced, action-packed story of politics trying to undermine faith during the Advent and Christmas season.

Keating’s previous books include ROOT OF ALL EVIL? A PASTOR STEPHEN GRANT NOVEL and WARRIOR MONK: A PASTOR STEPHEN GRANT NOVEL. In addition to being a novelist, Keating is a newspaper columnist with the Dolan Company and formerly with Newsday, economist, entrepreneur and adjunct college professor.

Regarding Keating’s thrillers, reviewers and commentators have used phrases like “fun adventure romp,” “a fun, intriguing read,” and “a good read, both as pure thriller entertainment and for pondering the Christian mind.” readers have compared Ray Keating’s thrillers to the works of Clancy, Ludlum, Grisham, and Cussler.

Review copies, interviews for the media, and author appearances are available upon request.

Religious Liberty and Forthcoming Pastor Stephen Grant Novel

Sure, last night (October 16) was the second Romney-Obama debate (and at Hofstra University, where I earned my MBA), but it also was the night I finished the first draft of An Advent for Religious Liberty: A Pastor Stephen Grant Novel.

Very excited about this forthcoming Advent/Christmas novel that, hopefully, is fun and entertaining, while also getting at the issue of government attacking our religious liberty.

Of course, news on its publication date will be spread.

In the meantime, enjoy the first two exciting Pastor Stephen Grant novels.
