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.
