Read an Excerpt from The Host

“Talk about intrigue, this story has it, along with a strong spiritual message.  The Host is a page-turner with believable characters.  Some you will love, others you will hate.  Crumley brings a magical freshness that draws you into the story right from the start.  If you like drama and fast action, this book is a must read.”

           “Though I read four to five books a month and have an undergraduate degree in English Literature, I usually find fiction to be a waste of time.  Ed Crumley’s work is a glorious exception.  His style of writing captivates my mind, and his message instructs my heart.  When I speak to audiences, I want to turn their ears into eyes so they can see what I am saying.  Ed does the same with the printed page.”

 “Ed Crumley is a remarkable man with a unique faith and a gracious approach   to getting the principles of Christianity to people through fiction. I warmly commend his novel, The Host.”
