Author Marvin D. Wilson is today's Featured Author. Marvin is a friend, and like the best of your friends, you never know what he'll say. To kick off his visit, I thought I'd re-post a review I did back in September of his latest book, Owen Fiddler.
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.
Now it's time to let Marvin take over so you can meet him in person. You won't want to miss this visit to Straight From Hel.
