Piper died Jan. 18, 1989 when a semi-tractor truck crushed his car. Declared dead by the first rescue workers to arrive on the scene, Don’s body lay under a tarp for the next 90 minutes. Don’s soul, meanwhile, experienced love, joy and life as he’d never known before. Don was in heaven.

When another pastor’s prayers helped bring Don back to life, he became a living miracle. Yet this is one miracle Don wished never happened. Heaven’s bliss was replaced by excruciating pain and emotional turmoil. With the support and prayers of his beloved wife, their three kids and friends near and far, Don clung to his faith in God and fought to regain a semblance of his previous life. The Piper family’s incredible true story of perseverance and overcoming the challenges of life—and death—brings hope and encouragement to all who see it.

No one but Eve, Mother of the Living, who calls her “daughter,” and invites her to witness the truth about her 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 misconceptions about who we are and how we’re made. 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.

Eve opens many doors by creating a forum that discusses the equality of men and women from the beginning. This point of view further helps others look at men and women as true equals and brings forth view points that our Creator possesses.

“We live in a world where ‘normal’ does not truly exist except as a concept or wishful thought. 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,” said Young.  And his novel Eve is a direct result of that belief that there is so much more in our beginnings and if we examine those times, instead of always over analyzing the present, we could create real change for the future.

woodlawnimageThe highly-anticipated film, ‘Woodlawn’ is a powerful story of courage, strength, and football in the midst of impassioned racial tensions in Birmingham, Alabama in the early ‘70s.

New football coach, Tandy Gerelds was struggling to put together a winning football team at Woodlawn High School –one of the last schools in Alabama to integrate. After being handed a struggling team, Coach Gerelds knew he didn’t have the caliber of players he needed to win, until he saw Tony Nathan run.

Coach Geralds knew that putting an African American in as running back would come with considerable backlash, but he saw something in Tony that couldn’t be ignored. The decision was about more than football. It was about doing what was right. With the help of a new school chaplain, Tony is able to look beyond himself and realize there was more at stake than winning a game.

In the face of adversity in the midst of a spiritual awakening, a once-struggling team stands together as brothers, and makes an astounding run at the playoffs, leading to the largest high school football game ever played in the city of Birmingham and the rise of its first African American superstar –Tony Nathan. Through these events, a once divided city finds healing.
