Overview

From the author of the twenty-five-million-copy bestseller The Shack comes a captivating new novel destined to be one of the most talked-about books of the decade.

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 beliefs 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 by cultural rules or limitations.

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 that her genetic code connects her to every known race. No one would 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 own story—indeed, the truth about us all.

As The Shack awakened readers to a personal, non-religious understanding of God, Eve will free us from faulty interpretations that have corrupted human relationships since the Garden of Eden.

Thoroughly researched and exquisitely written, Eve is a masterpiece that will inspire readers for generations to come.

The beginning of this book starts off like a cross between a childs story & a bible story. Don't let that stop you...keep going as it's well worth the effort. Wonderfull story that I couldn't stop reading.

I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. John the Collector retrieves a ship that is washed ashore, everyone is presumed dead until he finds a body hidden in a compartment. This is the story of Lilly Fields. Lilly has been brought to be a witness, but more importantly, heal her heart and soul from the traumatic childhood she has endured. William Paul Young takes a fascinating look at the days of creation and the fall of man. He shows how easily we can turn from God, starting from a tiny inkling of doubt or feeling alone. The story started off a bit confusing, but as you read on the story begins to come together. It's filled with lots of heartbreaking moments as Lilly comes to terms with her past, so be sure to have your tissues ready. All in all, a great story about trusting God's goodness and love through all circumstances.

Wm. Paul Young in his new book, “Eve”published by Howard Books brings us into the life of Eve. From the back cover: From the author of the twenty-two-million-copy bestseller The Shack comes a captivating new novel destined to be one of the most talked-about books of the decade. 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 that her genetic code connects her to every known race. No one would 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 own 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 beliefs 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 by cultural rules or limitations. As The Shack awakened readers to a personal, non-religious understanding of God, Eve will free us from faulty interpretations that have corrupted human relationships since the Garden of Eden. Thoroughly researched and exquisitely written, Eve is a masterpiece that will inspire readers for generations to come. Mr. Young has taken on the story of creation. Adam, Eve, The Garden Of Eden all the familiar elements that we have grown up with. He has added new thoughts from other parts of The Bible so that we get the story between Genesis One, Verse One and Genesis One Verse Two. Didn’t know there was a whole story between these two verses? Well have no fear it are presented here. Mr. Young has done a marvelous job of bringing his characters to life on the page. I am not so sure I agree with the theology that is presented. I guess this is something the reader will have to determine for themselves. Otherwise the book is interesting.

I know a lot of people took issue with The Shack and even though I didn’t agree with everything in the book I found it very interesting and deeply moving. When I saw WM. has come out with a new book, Eve, I had to read it to see what he came up with this time. The first couple of chapters I really wasn’t sure if I would finish the book. My mind seemed to have no place to land and I couldn’t get a hold of the story. But I pressed on. I am so glad I did. This book touches such a deep place in the heart of man and why we have turned away from our one true love. Lilly is a tough cookie, but she is so broken like all of us until she sees the beauty that is awaiting her. And she learns to trust. This is key. My words really can’t do justice to this book. It goes far beyond a review, it has moved my heart and I am still pondering the words I read. With that being said, there were some things in the book that made me go, “Not sure I think that really happened.” But it is fiction and should be read as such. Also, there was at least one “D” word in there and I am pretty sure Lilly used the Lord’s name in vain. So I wanted to give you a heads up on that. But if you want a different and deeper understanding of the heart of man and woman from the beginning I believe you will find it within these pages. Soul-achingly beautiful. A copy of this book was given to me by the publisher through Netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.

Eve was just in an okay read for me. I was really excited to be able to read it after hearing how good The Shack was. I have to say I was a little disappointed and not completely sure it was a book for me. There were some good elements of the book but I was confused through half of it. Three stars I received this book from Howard Books in exchange for my honest opinion, which was given.

Although a work of fiction “Eve” invites you to perceive God, the Trinity, Creation and our very existence in this universe in a new way. Believing in an omnipotent God allows be to believe all things are possible through a him. Wm Paul Young has invited us to glimpse just how amazing and wonderful that is.

This is a tough review for me. I'm torn with what to say because I don't want to disparage Mr. Young but I also don't want to be false in my assessment of the book. I went into the reading of this book with the knowledge that Mr. Young was a talented writer. I've read some of his previous endeavors and enjoyed his writing style. In Eve I once again enjoyed his mastery of words and story. But unfortunately I couldn't separate the fiction from the Biblical account. If Eve truly were a work of fiction based solely upon the authors imagination I would rate it higher and say that it was a good story just not quite to my liking. However, the story crosses over into Biblical fiction and that takes it to another level of scrutiny for me. Even though Mr. Young proclaims extensive research into the original texts the story of Eve deviates from it over and over in quite extreme ways. Mr. Young also states that he wishes to take a look at gender equality in a new way but I perceived it as more of a shifting of blame onto Adam rather than Adam and Eve equally disobeying God. Many of the themes throughout the book lean to an ultra feminist agenda that just don't sit well with me and seem to be contrary to Scripture. Eve is a book that I would personally recommend skipping. While the author is quite talented the subject matter in this book make it impossible for me to recommend it to anyone. It is my hope that Mr. Young will continue to use his talents but in areas that aren't as controversial. I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

Overly flowery writing mixed with unnecessarily too much details makes for a boring read.
