From the internationally bestselling author of "The Shack" and "Crossroads" comes a rich and enthralling retelling of the story of Adam and Eve - in which Eve is not to blame. In an absorbing and artistic narrative, William Paul Young explores the gaps in the original creation story of Genesis, painting Eve as a beautiful, wise heroine, rather than the unreliable woman history has cast her to be.

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.

This novel is very different. I would call it an allegory. It made me realize just how much God loves His children as well as just how broken we are. I noticed some of the reviews were negative. I perceive that those who don't like the book either don't know the Lord or have a religious spirit. The author, I don't think means for us to take it literally as the Word of God but as a better way to understand God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
I came away with the feeling that if we look upon His face and don't turn away, we will be in the light and there will be no darkness in us. We have to know, that we know, that we know that He is God and that He will never let us down.
