About Wm. Paul Young
Wm. Paul Young is the author of the world-wide bestsellers, The Shack, Cross Roads and Eve. With more than 25-million copies sold and 49 consecutive weeks at #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list, The Shack - soon to be a major motion picture, starring Sam Worthington (Avatar, Clash of the Titans, Terminator Salvation), Octavia Spencer (The Help) and country music superstar Tim McGraw (The Blind Side, Friday Night Lights) - has inspired conversations about God around the world.
Paul's latest novel, Eve (Howard Books, 2015), also a NY Times Bestseller, explores harmful assumptions we have about ourselves and the relationship initiated by God with us in the Garden of Eden. It is a book about the healing mercies available to all.
We live in a world where ‘normal’ does not truly exist except as an idea or concept. For each of us, where and how we grew up plays a foundational role in our sense of ‘normal’, and only when we begin to experience the ‘bigness and diversity’ of the world are we tempted to evaluate our roots.
I thought the way I grew up was ‘normal’ but I think most would probably agree that my history and journey have been a bit unusual.
