INDIALANTIC, Fla., Aug. 2, 2022 /Standard Newswire/ -- Colonel Ed Barr, an author and former intelligence officer, this week announced that his historical novel is officially available for purchase on all major book distribution sites. Barr comments that the "The Gray Apostle was based on several conversations I had over the years with friends who are both career intelligence officers and committed Christians. While the role of intelligence, particularly counterintelligence, is seldom considered regarding biblical events, those of us in the intelligence community know it played a role. The 'gray apostle' is an adaptation of the consummate Human Intelligence (HUMINT) professional, who is called the 'gray man' since he works behind the scenes and blends into the scenery. For those of you who have played 'find the spy' in the airport, I can assure you the person that looked like a spy wasn't a savvy HUMINT officer."

Barr combined his over 30 years in the intelligence community with his love of the bible to create a realistic, exciting, and mysterious portrait of the events surrounding the life of Jesus. Employing historical and biblical accuracy along with insight on intelligence and counterintelligence operations, The Gray Apostle: Mission of the Messiah offers a unique perspective of the drama that occurred behind the scenes of Jesus' ministry.

About the author:
Col. Edward J Barr is a career intelligence officer, a university faculty member, an attorney, and public speaker. He has master's degrees in theology and international affairs and lectures on both subjects for church and civic organizations.

The Gray Apostle: Mission of the Messiah is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other fine bookstores in paperback and eBook versions.
