Editorial Reviews

Review

"...the star of the book is the author's crisp writing and believable characters."  ~ Reviewer Charles H. H. Murphy

"...you have the building blocks of greatness." ~ Reviewer K. I. Kellison

"I hope if you are reading this review you will give this a try, it has mystery, drama, comedy, and romance!" ~Reviewer D. Waid

From the Author

The 'last chapter' Epilogue that reviewers refer to below is no longer present in the current version. Based on reader demand, a new ending was added on June 29th, 2012.

The Two Crosses, as a clean thriller novel, minus some language, could fall into a number of categories.  Some readers say it's Christian Paranormal and others say it's Christian Suspense, so there's a little bit in there for a variety of tastes.  You be the judge, have fun with it, and happy reading.  You may want to buckle up, because it is not your mama's Christian Fiction and it does have some rough-around-the-edges language.  The characters question their faith in where a supernatural ability like this could come from, but as a whole, the novel is not overwrought or preachy, as one reviewer kindly states below.  If you have questions or comments about the book, feel free to get in touch with the author over at ErnieLindsey.com.

He is the author of thirteen mystery, thriller, and suspense books, along with numerous short stories. When he's not writing or reading the works of other thriller writers, you can find him chasing a toddler, feeding a toddler, or cleaning up after a toddler. He remembers non-toddler things, but they're flimsy, gauzy mysteries.

Ernie and his family live in Oregon, along with a multi-fingered Hemingway cat named Luna.

I'm a Christian who doesn't read much Christian lit. It is usually trite, overwrought, predictable, and preachy. This is none of those. It discusses God and miracles without any of the need to smack you over the head. The characters were real, intricate, and well written. The author knew these people. They had their own views and perceptions. They were written with insight and subtlety. I cared for all of them, even the secondary characters. Too much of modern fiction is story driven so that the people that populate them are ever changing to fit the plot. This was character driven. The story went where the characters did. Don't get me wrong, it's not slow or a character study, it is full of happenings, all of which made sense because the characters made sense. I enjoyed the three different responses to healing miracles. I liked that two were slight variations with the third as a total contrast. I liked the exploration of faith. I liked the exploration of the purpose of miracles. Is it the physical healing that is important? Or the faith of the healer and the healed? Perhaps it is the bestowing of gifts by a benevolent God, a kind of reward? All thought provoking questions.

Then I got to the last chapter. Suddenly, the characters weren't remaining faithful to who they were. They suddenly and without much explanation and no hints, were totally different people. They didn't grow and change with or in response to events. They just did a 180 and went the other way. And I felt like I'd been punched. I had been really interested to see how these three people would effect each other. I wanted to explore what happens when three differing beliefs come into contact. It would have been interesting to see how the lives of the three could be healed by each other.

I must say, I'm impressed with this book. The author's style is far from boring, the pacing is just right and the story won't allow you to put it down. You've got two men who possess the same ability that can't be explained. One chooses to go public with his power while the other keeps a low profile. Both suffer terrible heartache as a result of it. Each man has a negative opinion of the other, and little does one of them know that a religious nut is out to get him.

Read this book, and you'll ask yourself what you'd do if you were in either man's shoes.

This was a good book, however, I was a bit surprised with some of the "language" used in a "Christian book." It was very realistic and fast-paced. I read it very quickly and it kept my interest all the way. There was not a lot of excess or fluff with this book. The book was to the point with all details, and did not keep you wondering what the author meant. Sadly, each character in this book had their own personal unfair losses, because they gave so much to others. Definitely worth reading.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for review.

I really enjoyed reading this book, up until the very last chapter. It almost seemed like the author got tired of writing and just wanted a quick ending. It didn't flow with the rest of the book. I was very disappointed.

When two different men, living very different lives, both suddenly acquire the ability to heal people it's interesting to see how each man handles the situation. It makes you think. How would you react? Which path would you take? Would you remain humble, and heal out of compassion for your fellow man, or would you tell the world, and heal for profit? It was enjoyable to see both sides of the dilemma.

I really did enjoy reading this book. The characters were great. I felt like each one was well written. But, like I said, the ending left me very dissatisfied.
I received a complimentary copy of this book to review.

....the end!

This is the first time I've written a review on here about a book but I literally just finished the last page and felt the need!!

ARGH!! I really enjoyed this book - it was a very good read. I was bawling at one point (didn't like that part at ALL) and I didn't like the changing of the tense in which the writer wrote based on the character - but the storyline was so good.

But when I got to the last page (didn't know at the time it was the last page) and anxiously turned to see what happened and found "The End" - I couldn't believe it.

Because of that, I only gave it three stars. It most definitely had the makings for 5 stars but your ending blew it for me.

This book rocks from the beginning to the end. Two very different men with very different ideals in the same situation. It amazes the mind the way they handle this at such opposite ends of the spectrum. This is most definitely a must read.

It's obvious that Ernie Lindsey is from the south. Not just because he is effortless in recreating accents; he is a writer who loves his characters and seems to write from inside them. Add that to the striking imagery that brings to every scene a nearly tactile quality and you have the building blocks of greatness. All you need is a story and a gripping premise...what happens when you get what you pray for? Not everyone is ready for that, and Lindsey shows us why. At a time when religion is on everyone's tongue, it's good to explore what's really at the heart of it. Can't wait to read his second book.
