Author of Hubble Reveals Creation by an Awe-Inspiring Power
From troubled teen to a successful entrepreneur and author, Paul Hutchins' story began when, as a terrified 19-year-old, he found himself cowering in a passenger seat, covering his head and silently praying the rural Kentucky sheriff's bullets would miss their mark and he would make it out alive. As his friend pursued an escape,the teens flew down a country road at potentially lethal speeds. Scared for his life, the high-speed chase was the beginning of a personal life change and the catalyst that would change the course of his life, eventually leading him to write Hubble Reveals Creation by an Awe-Inspiring Power.
Following his father's death at age 13, Hutchins, one of 10 siblings, lacked guidance and motivation. With his mother working full time to support the large family, he was left without a father figure and adequate parental guidance. As a teenager, Hutchins became involved with illegal drugs, petty crime and delinquency. It wasn't until he found himself in the high-speed chase, riding passenger to a prison-bound friend that he realized something needed to change. Unable to sync his thoughts with reality and lacking a sense of purpose, he considered suicide.
On drugs at age 19
Hutchins began to evaluate his life and resolved to go in a new direction, which saved him from following his brother to prison – who was later shot and killed. His friend from the high-speed chase was later featured on "America's Most Wanted" for double murder.
"Many of the friends I ran with in those days are dead from either a drug overdose or suicide," Hutchins says. "A good majority went to prison."
Today, Hutchins is a successful entrepreneur and says he's fortunate to be alive. A patented inventor and amateur astronomer, he began to notice the role imagination played in every major discovery in man's history. As he set out to explore the imagination of man, his search led him to consider the universe and its design: stars, galaxies, nebulas, planets—all of which Hutchins says are the result of one supreme imagination.
After researching the images and data from the Hubble and Spritzer space telescopes, collected since their launch, Hutchins was compelled to write about the universe as a product of intelligent design, fueled by superior imagination. In his new book, Hubble Reveals Creation by an Awe-Inspiring Power, Hutchins stitches together a photographic drama of the creation of the universe, examining the intricacies of the universe and invoking a "Grand Architect" as the creative force behind our world. With full-color photos, scientific data and a user friendly format, Hutchins takes readers on an awe-inspiring journey as he considers what lies beyond imagination.
Hutchins has been a businessman and entrepreneur for more than three decades, and has owned five companies. He is a recipient of the Lee County Community Development Award and has been a disaster relief volunteer. The parents of three adult daughters, Hutchins and his wife currently reside in Orlando, FL.
