Overview

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Walk and The Christmas Box, Richard Paul Evans has met hundreds of thousands of people and heard many of their stories in his travels over the past two decades. Most of the people he meets are hungry for inspiration; they love his novels because his characters are also searching for meaning and understanding.

The Four Doors is Evans’s message to those who seek inspiration in their lives. It began as a talk he gave on the spur of the moment, and over the course of ten years, it has evolved into a message he has shared with successful business people, students, and even addicts and prisoners. It includes stories his readers have told him, stories about great achievers who overcame hardships, and stories about his own struggle growing up in a large family with financial difficulties and a suicidal mother, and about his diagnosis of Tourette’s Syndrome later in life. These inspiring stories are woven through his identification and careful explanation of the four doors to a more fulfilling life:

BELIEVE THERE’ S A REASON YOU WERE BORN

FREE YOURSELF FROM LIMITATION

MAGNIF Y YOUR LIFE

DEVELOP A LOVE-CENTERED MAP

Evans believes that we all want to know the meaning of our lives. In The Four Doors, he shows how even the most quiet life can be full of purpose and joy, if we choose to take that first step over the threshold.

    A Must Read!!      I have always looked forward to Richard Paul

    A Must Read!!

         I have always looked forward to Richard Paul Evans Christmas novels, but this year I was intrigued by  Mr. Evans’ choice to share his non-fiction book  “The Four Doors”.    Richard is an engaging speaker so I knew that this book would be a fascinating read.    I must admit I had some trepidation when I started reading.  By the time I was finished, I was awestruck and had to immediately read it again.
    This book gently prods the reader to examine their own thinking and views on the world.   I was surprised at how faulty my internal dialogue can be and how my own thoughts shape how I perceive experiences and grow in life.  I really appreciated his use of “Mental Maps” and found his analogies throughout the book profoundly thought provoking.   Richard’s personal experiences and stories of others that he conveys in this book are heartwarming and eye opening.  The many quotes and affirmations he shares are relatable to everyone.  There is so much depth in this book and yet it is easy to read and understand.   I was particularly inspired by the lessons on Love I learned in the chapter on the fourth door.
    This is book will speak those who read it.  I think it will touch each person who reads it in a different personal way. I know several people I will be sharing this book with and I will be recommending it to all who will listen to me!   Richard Paul Evans wisdom will give you pause to ponder and his down to earth insights are written in a heartfelt way.   His words are a gift.  This book is a treasure!

    Very inspirational

    When I ordered the book I assumed it would be another "Christmas story" by Mr. Evans and I was disappointed when I discovered it wasn't. However, when I read the book I found it to be equal to his other books and very encouraging and inspiring. It certainly caused me to have a new perspective on issues in my life. I highly recommend it.

    Not one of his best

    Four Doors was a very short audible book and was not as good as his other books. This book is more about times in his life. More of a self-help book versus a story.
