Publishers Description
ODYSSEY (noun) an extended wandering or journey Set within the conservative religious subculture of the Amish, 'The Odyssey of a heart' is a searing examination of the author's heart as he struggles with intense doubt and fear brought on by his own youthful insecurities. Fueling his anger and confusion is a double standard born of an eroding conscience. At a young age he compromises the convictions of his heart and is inevitably drawn into a pool of moral ambiguity. Choosing to live solely from the mind, he is ultimately forced to confront the result of his many decisions - a rapid downward spiral into the dark underworld of drug abuse. Written with authority and compassion, 'Odyssey' is a piercing call to defy the destructive tendencies that lie within all of us, and to live from a deep and full heart. Mervin Wagler puts his relationship skills to practice in the classroom, where he has taught at the elementary level for the past four years. He enjoys writing and public speaking. This is his first book.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Odyssey of a Heart?

Good book.  Aug 12, 2008
This is a good, short read. Very informative on the world of drugs- the grip they can get on a person. If you're familiar w/ the Amish it's very easy to follow. the author doesn't spend a whole lot of time trying to explain the amish life, etc. it's mostly about his journey. Definitely recomend this book.
The Odyssey of a Heart  Aug 11, 2008
Confession. I am the author. But I will review it for you anyway. This is my first published work. The foundational conflict begins with uncertainty, climaxes with drug use and God's intervention, and then levels out with an attempt to maintain a righteous life. In this book you will find brutally honest looks into a heart, with the confusion and clarity that fight for space there. Two points of interest are: I grew up Amish. In the book you will come to understand more of the Amish way of life, as well as some of the subtle undercurrents of the group that no outside writer can cover. Also, a natural drug user, I quit cold one day and have been clean for six years. The inner conflict this created is detail well.
