DAVENPORT, Fla. - Nov. 1, 2023 - PRLog -- Christmas Bells at St. Mary's: A Pastor Stephen Grant Short Story by Ray Keating is the perfect page-turner for the Christmas season. This is Keating's 20th work of fiction, and the 19th book in the Pastor Stephen Grant series.

If you appreciate the spirit captured by many classic Christmas films, then you're just like Pastor Stephen Grant … and you'll enjoy this latest adventure. From the pages of his own journal, Pastor Grant paints a picture of Christmas at St. Mary's Lutheran Church, emphasizing gratitude for family; for a new clergy friend; for a special handbell concert; and yes, for movies of the season. But danger also lurks, and sin, justice, forgiveness, suffering, sacrifice and salvation mix together in a rare way.

Ray Keating says, "Pastor Stephen Grant and I love classic films, including the tradition of watching certain movies at Christmas time. That becomes clear in Christmas Bells at St. Mary's, and I hope this book becomes something of a traditional read around Christmas."

Kirkus Reviews has called Ray Keating's Pastor Stephen Grant "an engaging and multifaceted character" and "a consistently entertaining hero." Lutheran Book Review calls Keating "the master of the theological thriller."

Matthew Heise, author of The Gates of Hell: An Untold Story of Faith and Perseverance in the Early Soviet Union, said, "Check out Ray's novels… They are action-filled and deeply thought out. His Stephen Grant is Jack Ryan in Lutheran clerical garb!"

In an article titled "If James Bond Became a Pastor" covering Ray Keating's Pastor Stephen Grant thrillers/mysteries series, author and columnist Gene Veith noted, "Mr. Keating knows how to tell an exciting story. And these books, like the James Bond novels, are ridiculously entertaining."
