LitWits' next meeting will be October 18. The book the group has selected is An Advent for Religious Liberty: A Stephen Grant Novel by Ray Keating. This will be the second "Stephen Grant Novel" the group has read. The first one, Warrior Monk, was so well received by us that a second one easily received enough votes to get on our reading schedule. Amazon.com says, concerning "Advent:"
"KFUO radio’s “BookTalk”: Ray Keating is a “great novelist.” Advent and
Christmas approach. It’s supposed to be a special season for Christians.
But it’s different this time in New York City. In AN ADVENT FOR
RELIGIOUS LIBERTY: A PASTOR STEPHEN GRANT NOVEL, religious liberty is
under assault. 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 and violence
trying to undermine faith during the Advent and Christmas season.
Amazon.com readers have compared Ray Keating’s thrillers to the works of
Clancy, Ludlum, Grisham, and Cussler. Keating’s previous books include
WARRIOR MONK: A PASTOR STEPHEN GRANT NOVEL and ROOT OF ALL EVIL? A
PASTOR STEPHEN GRANT NOVEL."
Anyone who enjoys a good book and talking about it is welcome to come to our LitWits meetings.
