Back to Meet the Authors

Richard Paul Evans has sold more than 17 million books worldwide, and his books have been translated into more than 25 languages. His book “The Christmas Box” reached the top of The New York Times best-seller list and was later made into a movie. In 1997, Evans founded the Christmas Box House International, which is devoted to building shelters for abused and neglected children. His new book is “A Step of Faith” (Simon & Schuster), about a man who endures extraordinary tragedy and sadness only to recover after alienating nearly everyone around him.
