Inhaltsangabe: "The Masked Saint" follows the journey of former professional wrestler Chris Samuel, who retires from the ring to settle down as a small town pastor. When the pastor witnesses rampant problems in the community, he decides to moonlight as a masked vigilante fighting the injustice. While facing crises at home and at the church, the Pastor must evade the police and somehow reconcile his secret, violent identity with his calling as a pastor. Inspired by true events in the life of Pastor Chris Whaley, "The Masked Saint" is based on the highly popular book of the same name by Whaley. It was filmed entirely in Northern Ontario, and features icons of the screen like Diahann Carroll and 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper alongside stars Brett Granstaff and Lara Jean Chorostecki. "The Masked Saint" is slated to open in theaters nationwide on January 8, 2016. through P23 Entertainment. For more information, visit http: //themaskedsaintmovie.com/.

Rezension: As a kid growing up my heroes in life were the Lone Ranger and Tonto, "The Masked Rider of the Plains!" I just discovered another lone ranger---Chris Whaley. If you re in need of encouragement and you love it when truth overcomes evil and when the underdog rallies to pull out a win, you re going to love "The Masked Saint." It s a good one. --- Dr. Kevin Leman, author of Have a New Kid by Friday

Having read "The Masked Saint" by Chris Whaley, I can commend this book to you as an enjoyable and sometimes humorous recounting of a young pastor s life and ministry even though that life and ministry follow a different path than most. His style and presentation encourage believers to put away prejudices and to accept the life transforming power of our Lord Jesus Christ. I commend this book to you and pray you will enjoy it as I did. --- Dr. Frank Page, President, Southern Baptist Convention, 2006 2008

Body-slamming a deserving criminal? Now that is a fleeting image to which almost every pastor can confess. Whaley, a former professional wrestler turned Baptist pastor, gives us an entertaining and fictional peek at what might happen if pastors actually did some of the things they wished they could do. Many a pastor will sympathize readily with this shrouded champion who rights wrongs and defends the defenseless though the Scriptures prevent us all from imitating his costumed combat in real life. --- Dr. Paige Patterson, President Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas

For his maiden voyage as an author, Chris Whaley has done a superb piece of work. He has a vocabulary that is readable and a style that uses review and preview to perfection. Writing as a minister he captures great truth in a pragmatic way. This is an excellent read for parents and young people. He brings tributaries of ethics and experience together and forms a river of moral truth. I like it! --- Dr. John Sullivan, Executive Director-Treasurer, Florida Baptist Convention

Growing up watching professional wrestling and fulfilling my own dream of wrestling for WCW and the WWF you always somehow knew the good guy wins in the end! Everyone has a little Chris Whaley in them! Who would have ever thought of combining a wrestler with a superhero could be so entertaining. I thoroughly enjoyed this book; he says and does what many of us wish we had done. His honest look at himself and his life is a testament to a stand up guy that loves God and his family. You inspire me! --- Marc Mero, WWF Intercontinental Champion/Johnny B. Badd/WCW World Television Champion

Everyone has a story. My friend Chris Whaley tells his with humor, transparency, honesty and insight. His is a unique story of God s grace and faithfulness. He shares both the joys and challenges of serving Christ. I believe spiritual seekers, committed believers, and church leaders will all be encouraged by his story. There are lessons to learn and principles to glean from this journey of faith. Thanks, Chris, for pulling off the mask and letting us inside. --- Dr. Willie Rice, President The Florida Baptist Convention, 2007, 2008

A novel about a wrestler turned Baptist preacher brought to mind a few non-fiction church business meetings I ve unfortunately witnessed where the pastor may have wished he could have employed the moves of the Masked Saint! Although "The Masked Saint" exposes the sinfulness that is all too common in churches, Chris Whaley s entertaining novel intersperses those sad episodes with encouraging lessons of God s grace---often from the lips of a common while profound elderly woman. It turns out, the Masked Saint is no superhero; like the rest of us, he is a sinner saved by grace seeking to share that message of hope with other sinners in need of a Savior. That s what makes "The Masked Saint" a novel all can enjoy. --- Dr. James A. Smith, Executive Editor, Florida Baptist Witness

Chris Whaley reminds us that pastors, like many of us, have previous lives of varying backgrounds. His first book, "The Masked Saint," blends, in a fictional account, the unique perspectives of a professional wrestler, now pastor, as he confronts right against wrong and good versus evil. When the final bell rings, we find ourselves in his corner. --- F. Robert Radel, II, J.D., Butler Pappas, Tampa, Florida

Chris Whaley has written a fascinating adventure of a man coming to grips with who he is, and who God is. It is challenging, entertaining and heart warming. Every pastor and every man should read this book! --- Patrick Moody, Former Hollywood Actor/Director, Senior Pastor, The Village Baptist Church, West Palm Beach, Florida

A fascinating story with colorful characters and a story theme that warms the heart. --- Dr. Paul R. Corts, President, Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, Former Assistant Attorney General"
