Godsmacked, A Souljourner’s Guide to the Heart of God is a true and candid account of Wendell's own personal ourney of discovery, which took him through a A maze of new age religions and sects, culminating in a trip to India, seeking enlightenment and what the Hindus call "anubhava", or truth directly experienced. Along with some fellow seekers he travelled the sub-continent meeting many famous and not-so-famous swamis, gurus, lamas and even a living “avatar” named Satya Sai Baba. The journey was indeed enlightenting, as well as incredibly fascinating. At times, bizarre and even humorous. But it all ended in a surprising (at least for him) discovery about ultimate “truth” that changed his life forever. As Wendell says about the response to the book, "I gratified that so many have found the account engrossing and inspiring. I hope you will too."

     "Deep down inside, everyone longs to know the answers to life’s most important questions. Like “Who am I?”  pageand “What am I here for?” But not many of us take that search to the lengths that Wendell Burton has. “Godsmacked!” is an honest, informative and revealing account of his own personal quest to find the answer to those questions. It’s a one of a kind adventure. And a great read!"

     "As a teen who loved movies, I vividly remember The Sterile Cuckoo starring the great Liza Minnelli and a relatively unknown, but terrific young actor, named Wendell Burton.  Burton’s honest and transparent account of his own “magical mystery tour” is seasoned with humor yet has an urgency that makes it both enjoyable and compelling.  I felt I was on the journey with him, asking the same questions and discovering answers to some of life’s core issues.  It is fashionable to be searching for truth and meaning, but it is transformational to discover it.  Loved it!"

We all long for answers to the questions life asks of us. I can think of no better sage to help answer those questions . Wendell's account of his own journey is a fresh, fascinating and thought-provoking adventure. expressed in a style that is totally Wendell… You will love how this book makes you feel and the destination to which it takes you."
