Now, Grant is back in “Root of All Evil?”

If conservatives and Christians are looking for a hero they can appreciate in the world of fiction, then the Pastor Stephen Grant novels are for them. Keating, a longtime conservative columnist and commentator, has served up Stephen Grant, who is a principled, faithful man of action.

This latest novel is a breathtaking thriller involving drug traffickers, politicians, the CIA and FBI, a shadowy foreign regime, the Church, and money. In this page-turner, plots are hatched, lives are lost, accusations are made, friends need and provide help, and relationships change. Money is used and pursued for both good and ill. Charity, envy and greed are on display. Throughout, action runs high.

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.”
