Eve

Wm Paul Young

$22.99

Paperback
The Shack shattered our limited perceptions about God. Eve will destroy harmful misconceptions about ourselves.
When a shipping container washes ashore on an island between our world and the next, John the Collector finds a young woman inside-broken, frozen, and barely alive. With the aid of Healers and Scholars, John oversees her recovery and soon discovers her genetic code connects her to every known human race. She is a girl of prophecy and no one can guess what her survival will mean. No one but Eve, Mother of the Living, who calls her "daughter," and invites her to witness the truth about her story-indeed, the truth about us all.
Eve is a bold, unprecedented exploration of the Creation narrative, true to the original texts and centuries of scholarship-yet with breathtaking discoveries that challenge traditional misconceptions about who we are and how we're made. Eve opens a refreshing conversation about the equality of men and women within the context of our beginnings, helping us see each other as our Creator does-complete, unique, and not constrained to cultural rules or limitations.
Thoroughly researched and exquisitely written, Eve is a masterpiece that will inspire readers for generations to come.

Meet the Author

Wm Paul Young

Paul was born a Canadian and along with three younger siblings was raised among a stone-age tribe by his missionary parents in the highlands of what was New Guinea (West Papua). The family returned to Canada where his father pastored a number of churches for various denominations. By the time he entered Canadian Bible College, Paul had attended a dozen schools. He completed his undergraduate degree in religion at Warner Pacific College in Portland, Oregon. While in Oregon, Paul attended seminary and worked on staff at a large church where he met and married Kim. Together they celebrate the wastefulness of grace with their six children, two daughters-in-law, and now two grandchildren. His worldwide phenomenon, The Shack, was written for his six children, with no thought or intention to publish. He says "It is as much a surprise to me as to anyone else that I am now an author. And a best-selling author at that!

Wow! Very Much Enjoyed This!
5 stars By Matthew Poole, Apr 07 2017
I really enjoyed this novel, so much so I tried to read slower so it wouldn't end! So many words come to my mind to describe this. It is evocative, imaginative, emotional, primal, futuristic, mystical, surprising and a joy to read. 
It really adds to the tradition of writing and singing about Adam and Eve, like C.S. Lewis, Neal Morse, Milton and George MacDonald have done before. George MacDonald is even thanked by Mr Young in the acknowledgements, and I feel the influence, though "Eve" is a very different style and substance to MacDonald's stories.
I liked this book much more than "The Shack", and the elements that I liked about "The Shack" like the evocative language of landscape and sensation are even more vivid and sweeping here. The parts I struggled with in "The Shack" like the differences in orthodoxy are still here sometimes in Eve, but they're presented as story, as opposed to being statements out of the mouth of God in the Shack without much wriggle room. In fact, in the back of the book Mr Young gives his address so you can write to him about his work. I could have used that sort of wriggle room with "The Shack".
Thank you Koorong for supplying such an enriching work in your fiction section. God bless.
