Ed DeVos’ Second Book Now Available

Recently published by WestBow Press, a division of Thomas Nelson and Zondervan, the world’s largest producer of Christian books, is The Chaplain’s Cross, the second historical, inspirational novel authored by Savannah Lakes resident Ed DeVos.

The Chaplain’s Cross is a thought-provoking story of two men – one an Army Air Corps chaplain and the other a Japanese fighter pilot – as these two men prepare for a battle that takes place over Truk Atoll on March 29, 1944, an epic air battle in which the 307th Bomb Group is awarded a Distinguished Unit Citation.

In this story DeVos weaves the actions of these two men, exploring their views of their faith as well as how they interact with those around them. As the battle reaches its climax, each man faces a crisis in conscience that exposes the moral and spiritual dilemma warriors have always faced in combat. This story leads to a surprise ending, one that continues to have implications for us today.

The characters presented in this work demonstrate how all decisions have consequences as they model what honesty, truthfulness, integrity, honor, and valor look like, words that are heard all too

infrequently in our society today.

The Chaplain’s Cross is dedicated to the chaplains of World War II and to the men they served. Comments by some of the reviewers have described the work as, “Excellent work” . . . “This book was written from the heart . . . a must read for all generations,” and “The narrative captures the historical accuracy of a major World War II air campaign in the Pacific. . . .”

The book is available in both hard- and soft- cover versions as well as in eBook through

Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Lifeway Christian book stores, Family Christian Book Stores and WestBow Press, as well at various local outlets, including The MACK, Books On Main, Strom’s Drug Store, Crawford and Breazeale Drug Company, White Hardware, and the Willington Bookshop. Ed’s first work, The Stain, is also available at these same locations. 
