More About the Author

Richard Paul Evans
When Richard Paul Evans wrote the #1 best-seller, The Christmas Box, he never intended on becoming an internationally known author.

Officially, he was an advertising executive, an award-winning clay animator for the American and Japanese markets, candidate for state legislature and most importantly, husband and father. The Christmas Box was written as an expression of love for his (then) two daughters. Though he often told them how much he loved them, he wanted to express his love in a way that would be timeless. In 1993, Evans reproduced 20 copies of the final story and gave them to his closest relatives and friends as Christmas presents. In the month following, those 20 copies were passed around more than 160 times, and soon word spread so widely that bookstores began calling his home with orders for it.

His quiet story of parental love and the true meaning of Christmas made history when it became simultaneously the #1 hardcover and paperback book in the nation. Since then, more than eight million copies of The Christmas Box have been printed. The Emmy award-winning CBS television movie based on The Christmas Box starred Maureen O'Hara and Richard Thomas. Two more of Evans's books were produced by Hallmark and starred such well-known actors as James Earl Jones, Vanessa Redgrave, Naomi Watts, Mary McDonough and Academy award winner Ellen Burstyn. He has since written 10 consecutive New York Times bestsellers and is one of the few authors in history to have hit both the fiction and non-fiction bestseller lists. He has won three awards for his children's books including the 1998 American Mothers book award and two first place Storytelling World awards. Evans's latest book, The 5 Lessons a Millionaire Taught Me About Life and Wealth, is now available.

Of his success, Evans says: "The material achievements of The Christmas Box will never convey its true success, the lives it has changed, the families brought closer together, the mothers and fathers who suddenly understand the pricelessness of their children's fleeting childhood. I share the message of this book with you in hopes that in some way, you might be, as I was, enlightened."

During the Spring of 1997, Evans founded The Christmas Box House International, an organization devoted to building shelters and providing services for abused and neglected children. Such shelters are operational in Moab, Vernal, Ogden and Salt Lake City, Utah and Lucre, Peru. To date, more than 16,000 children have been housed in Christmas Box House facilities.

As an acclaimed speaker, Evans has shared the podium with such notable personalities as President George W. Bush, President George and Barbara Bush, former British Prime Minister John Majors, Ron Howard, Elizabeth Dole, Deepak Chopra, Steve Allen, and Bob Hope. Evans has been featured on the Today show and Entertainment Tonight, as well as in Time, Newsweek, People, The New York Times, Washington Post, Good Housekeeping, USA Today, TV Guide, Reader's Digest, and Family Circle. Evans lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, with his wife, Keri, and their five children.

Richard Paul Evans has tugged at the heart again with "A Step of Faith", the latest installment of his amazing "The Walk" series. This time we find Alan Christoffersen in the midst of another personal crisis that threatens his journey across the country to Key West. Alan is joined by those he needs most but circumstances and emotions get in the way and he eventually returns alone to continue his Walk.

Alan heads from St. Louis through the deep South tasting the culture and amazing food along the way. He meets some very interesting people including a woman tied to a tree that leads to an encounter with a "religion" that is out of this world he never expected. All of them have Alan pondering what he really needs and wants most. When Alan comes to the realization about what to do, he hits another speed bump in his path.

Like many of Richard Paul Evans fans I could not wait for this book to come out. I really enjoyed reading it and found it impossible to put down. Mr. Evans is an incredible storyteller and this book is the best one of this series yet! Now begins the agonizing wait for the final part of this incredible adventure due out next year. "The Walk" series puts readers through an emotional wringer and we are better for the ride.

It started out with "The Walk" and now after many "Miles to Go" down "The Road to Grace" take "A Step of Faith" and join the journey. Life's road will never look the same.

Evans delivers a novel that reads like a real life experience. Most everyone can relate to the challenges faced in the book. The main characters life experiences leaves the reader with a better understanding of how to overcome obstacles in their lives and how keeping the faith will lead to a better life. A Step of Faith is exciting, up-lifting, at times sad, and healing in a powerful package called a book.

Books 1 and 2 in this series were amazing and I couldn't put down. Book 3 was so so. I bought book 4 thinking this was the end and I would see how Alan was going to get on with life, but not so. I did read this book in a day because it was basically a list of him walking, where he was and what he ate. Not too many interesting characters until he hits Alabama/Florida. I was so disappointed to find there is a book 5, which I will buy because I'm hooked on him and his travels now, but I hope that's it and it doesn't keep dragging on in this little books. Books 1 and 2 just made you think and were so wow, as the series goes on it is losing steam.

I very much enjoyed the first 3 books in the series, even encouraging my friends and family to read them. I struggled to get through this 4th book, and don't feel I can recommend it to anyone. I feel Mr. Evans missed the mark on this one. For example, I don't understand why we have to read what Alan eats at every meal when it doesn't even relate to a particular part of the country he is traveling through. What is the deal with Pop Tarts? I feel like he is just filling space with words that don't matter. I was very disappointed he even included the section about the religious cult he encountered-didn't even seem like something Mr. Evans would write about-not his style. As I read the book, I kept waiting for my heart to be touched like in the first 3 books but it never happened. I don't understand why it took so long to write the 4th book. I don't mean to be rude or cruel, but it just seems to me there was less effort put into making "A Step of Faith" an interesting story-it felt more like he was just fulfilling a commitment he had made to write it. The wind has really been taken out of my sails as far as being excited about book 5. On a positive note, I have read many other Richard Paul Evans books and found them hard to put down-he is a beautiful, talented writer. I just wish I could say that about "A Step of Faith". I feel so let down...... it's like thinking a good friend is going to come visit you, but they never show up.

I feel abused at needing to spend so much money to complete one story. It was fun at the beginning, but the plot has grown a little thin. So much time is wasted in each of the last three books filling in information for new readers, that it becomes annoying. I feel like the entire coss-country trip could have been presented in one book with more momentum and less sap. I don't like being teased, and I don't like waitng for months or longer for the next segment. Please finish it already!

This book was a bit of a disappointment. Not compelled to anticipate the next dragging sequel in twelve months. Wish it had been better.

I was very excited when I learned this copy was in the mail. However, I found after a while that I was just waiting to see where he would stay and what he would eat. He did more Inns and hotels than in the other books and focused on meals that were popular in the areas where he was walking. I was reminded of travel books I have read - of what you'll eat when you stop somewhere. Sorry. I love his writing and the previous books in this series were great. I still read this book in two days but I think I kept looking for the plot to pick up. Alas, it was not to be. I'll look forward to the next book but with all the reading I've done in my life I really have a sense that I know what will happen.
