Eve by Wm. Paul Young takes an elaborate look at Creation and God’s unending love, grace, and mercy. Woven into a story of one girl’s search for meaning in her broken life, we find ourselves seeing a new side of God and His all-consuming desire of reconciliation with us. It did take a while for me not to focus on the characters titles: Collector, Guardian, Healer, Mender, Scholars, and Engineer just to name a few, but to focus on their jobs and accomplishments. As I neared the end of the story, I saw truths in my own life which were mirrored in the novel, Eve. This will be a story which will be revisited often – in book and in thought.
A few of the many nuggets gleaned from this story:
“Prayer is mostly about talking to God – about life and people and what is before us and who matters to us in that moment” (p. 101). ~ Gerald
“… trust is about relationship, not power. When two dance, each is always respectfully attuned to the other. There is a timing of relationship, and that is Ruach’s (the Holy Spirit) playground” (page 257). ~ God / Adonai
I received a free copy of Eve from NetGalley and Howard Books for my honest review.
