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.

Interesting Take on an Age Old Story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Maybe to a religious friend, you definitely need some sort of Christian background to enjoy this story, though not all Christians will take kindly to this book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked the old caretaker.

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...

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!

Thought provoking

I found the plot difficult to follow with all the 'flashbacks' and the 'two ' worlds.. I did not feel there was enough clarification of things at the end. ( or beginning!) In some ways it had the same kind of pattern as The Shack although the plot was obviously different. I found some of the thoughts about what was used in the Garden of Eden for 'covering', fascinating in a way that helped to make sense of some things that had always puzzled me.

A 'treasure' to be stored up!

Wow!.......As a woman I am completely undone by this book. It fills in all the missing pieces that I have pondered over for years and I believe it was written for this very moment in time for many of us. Thank you William. You are a great blessing!

Deep

This is a deep book, and I tried a second time to understand it, but it can be a little confusing at times. Might improve by a woman's voice reading the women's parts, sometimes not sure who is talking.

Confusing yet profound

This book was well written and I loved it almost as much as the Shack. It has similarities but also lots of differences too. The book was extremely confusing for at least the first half and even bits of the second half however the concepts contained inside were fresh, insightful and profound, delving closer into the original fall from Grace and what it means for us, particularly for women. I would not hesitate to recommend his book and to persevere even through the confusion.

Brilliant storyteller!!!

Without a doubt William Paul Young is one of the most gifted storytellers around, as us evidenced by this intricate, layered and expertly woven story. Now that I’ve listened once, I will listen again to pick up the layers I missed the first time.
