Wenzel: I have read ... ‘Caught in the Winds’ with a great deal of
interest. I must say that it is not like anything else that I have
read, which is a compliment since I read many hours every day ...
Philosophy, theology, mysticism and the quirks of evangelical
subculture filter throughout its pages.

seems to have a writing gift: his sentence structure, his way with
adjectives and sense of timing hold the reader’s interest. The
characters come alive, and the overall plot hangs together and is
neatly resolved. He takes on engaging philosophical issues." (2005) see

love the imagination and heartfelt realism of this we need more fiction
representing the values we wrestle with daily. I think any person from
any religion would enjoy this book and I hope to see many more books by
this gifted author.

found the characters interesting and believable – and when you get to
the point in the book where things really take off, you’ll know it.
That’s when you won’t be able to put it down. And the best part is that
it wasn’t just entertainment – it really named some issues for me that
I don’t think I had ever named so succinctly, even after an M.Div.
These topics won’t interest everyone, but if they do, you know who you
are. Wenzel has written an unassuming, quietly profound coming-of-age
book that was a delight to discover and share. Full review
amazing novel. As an evangelical Christian, pastor, and professor I
hope many many people enjoy reading this novel.
