Publisher's Summary

The Shack shattered our limited perceptions about God. Eve will destroy harmful misconceptions about ourselves.

From the author of the 25-million copy best seller The Shack comes a beautifully crafted, captivating new novel destined to be one of the most important and 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 misconceptions about who we are and how we're made. As The Shack awakened listeners to a personal, nonreligious understanding of God, Eve will free us from faulty interpretations that have compromised human relationships since the Garden of Eden.

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 man-defined rules or limitations.

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

Perfect for spiritual book clubs & revival of self

What made the experience of listening to Eve the most enjoyable?

I found myself going back to Genesis in the Bible and re-reading the Creation & the chapters on The Garden. I could see where the inspiration for the story came from; it was deeply moving and profoundly spiritual on so many levels all throughout the book, Oft was the time I found myself shouting into the air DON'T as the characters literally wormed their ways evilly about.

What did you like best about this story?

The story was redemptive. You understood the protagonists and how easily they plied their way into a good person. Weaving the Creation and The Garden into a story that had meaning today was done artfully and compassionately.

What does Roger Mueller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I personally feel more when the story is being read to me. I feel drawn into the book as if part of the scene unfolding as no printed words could attain.

Who was the most memorable character of Eve and why?

Lily Fields. Her journey of self-discovery and spiritual awakening and most importantly, love-dawning was inspiring. Despite all that had been done to her, the bad choices of trusting & hiding she made.. she was deeply loved. And loveable, despite herself.

Any additional comments?

This definitely belongs in your library if you love to re-visit books with spiritual inspiration in it. I am grateful for the person who told me William Paul Young wrote another book after how deeply The Shack affected me. Both his books bring tangible understanding to the explainable, indescribable faith that we cherish. There are aspects of both books you will listen to over and over and over again for the joy they instill as you imagine them unfold before you. Pure spiritual delight.

Amazing!!!

I love this book. I already can't wait to read it again. The characters are beautifully created and grow genuinely. The allegory is strong and powerful. There a few surprises, though. I feel like many ideas are borrowed from mythology, feminist ideals and new age ideologies. But even so, the the core message IS real to me and relevant. Some of the creative vehicles used to arrive at some of the more outlandish ideals are quite absurd, albeit interesting for imagery and thought provoking sake. I think that combining truth with fiction just might create a sense of openness that allows a person to be able to be able to say- "hey this is crazy! It can't be. Or can it?" And then possibly truly seek the Father for themselves.

Amazing story! Better than the shack. Especially after chapter 6.

A journey through time, hearts, souls, and reality

I absolutely love the perspective of this story. It is narrated very well and the voice change for the characters helped me keep up with the story. It was a little struggle to keep up with a few parts in the plot but a brilliant story nonetheless. Beauty, trust, and love blossom out of tragedy and chaos. I think Ill have to listen again...

Eve

Wow. What a disappointment. I understand the concept of taking God out of the box but this was a horrible example. I think some things should be left alone, including this book. Sorry. I tried to like it. It was just too far out for me to enjoy.

A challenging story

An engaging read, challenging my belief system, then reaffirming it. I could see the characters in my head the whole time!

Beautiful story

Quite thought provoking while intertwining the world we live in we can see and understand; with the invisible world of spirit rarely understood yet more real than what our eyes may see. While all the extraordinary - other world - the author carries us into seems illogical even impossible, who really knows... I loved it! I'll be coming back to this story again and again!

Enriching and hopeful.

There are so many noteworthy observations and historical clarifications that I had to start bookmarking to go back for contemplation. My most memorable moment was the meeting of the three at the end, and realizing that I am Lilly.

Surprised

I didn’t know what to expect when I first got the book, but I love Paul Young’s other writings so I listened. The story and the way it was narrated was great. It gave me a full picture of the story and because I believe a lot of the same ideas about God it was easier to follow along. The main thing to always keep in mind when listening to this story is the face to face relationship that God wants with all of us.
