COMING SOON – PAUL’S NEW BOOK…
ESCAPING FROM EDEN
The familiar canon of stories in the book of Genesis affirm that God made the universe, planet earth, Adam and Eve, and you and me. However the presence in those stories of the Holy Name of God – not revealed until the time of Moses – clues us that we are not reading the original version of these stories.
So what was “wrong” with the original versions that they had to be changed? Just what were the original stories and what did they say about who we are and where we all came from? What was the earlier story of human origins, almost obliterated from the Hebrew canon in the 6th century BC, and suppressed from Christian writing in the 2nd century AD? And why was that suppression finally lifted in 2009?
ESCAPING FROM EDEN probes the Biblical texts and wrestles with these questions, arriving at some deeply controversial conclusions. The book lifts the lid on a nearly 2000 year old taboo and points to truths about ourselves, the universe and everything that you may have long suspected but not dared to speak!
“Paul is doing a courageous service by looking at the Bible with the perspective of other traditions & religions to give us a new perspective on the creation and engineering of man.”

UPDATE MARCH 2019
A great time interviewing with Filmmaker and Media Host Sean Stone this week on the topic of my upcoming book, “ESCAPING FROM EDEN.” The conversation went some places I didn’t expect and was a lot of fun. A pleasure talking with a man whose work holds faith and exploration together so creatively. Here is a little excerpt to whet your appetite…

THE STORY OF US?
In “Sapiens – a brief history of humankind” Yuval Noah Harari from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem traces the history of humanity beginning 70,000 years ago. It is a state-of-the-art iteration of the story I learned in school, beginning with a randomly mutated ape and culminating in glorious us. “ESCAPING FROM EDEN” digs a little deeper and finds an ancient and widespread narrative, sometimes at odds with Harari’s story-line, and equally at odds with the familiar Sunday school counterpart. “Stay tuned” and there will be more to share in a couple of weeks as the book goes into production…
