Book Review: Owen Fiddler by Marvin D. Wilson

Author Marvin D. Wilson presents the man Owen Fiddler as average. So average, in fact, that the “one unique aspect of him is his absolute average-ness.” But, in fact, Owen Fiddler, in the book Owen Fiddler, represents the extremes of man. He reaches the lowest of lows, attains the highest of highs, and, like most of mankind, searches for redemption.

In Owen Fiddler, Marvin D. Wilson has written a modern-day religious allegory, a story of rejecting grace, walking God’s path, and accepting responsibility for one’s sins in order to be saved and returned to grace. Owen Fiddler’s life is not necessarily one that all people can relate to, but his struggles are. Until he reaches the bottom, he is happy to wallow in his life, not caring how it affects others. When the worst that can happy to Owen Fiddler does indeed happen, the question becomes can the best that ever happened to him show Owen the way out of his misery? And will he follow?

Marvin D. Wilson describes himself as a “spiritualist with a zeal for sharing inspirations and insights ….” In Owen Fiddler, he shares a story of opposites, of good and evil, of rejecting God and accepting grace … and he does it with zeal.

  2. We're all searching for reasons why things happen. Sounds like Owen Fiddler could be a good start in that direction.

  5. Owen! How wonderful of you to drop by. And I agree, Marvin should pay you more dough. I'd ask for cookie dough myself. Although you probably prefer self-rising bread dough.
