"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

About the Author
In 1993, a friend stacked $250,000 on Dan's desk and dared him to open another restaurant. However 90 days later, Dan purchased a $500,000 restaurant with funding he procured from a different investor. He recalls how desperately he needed the $250,000 challenge. Hank Montague, the protagonist in "1 Week" is modeled after that experience of being provoked to action. Two characters in 1 Week pick up the challenge of recouping the five to eight trillion dollars Americans lost in the 2008 recession. In recent years Dan has worked as a union teamster constructing power plants and pipelines. He finds that God often uses those daily interactions with up to 4000 men to usher in that next threshold of faith. He finished "1 Week" in June 2013 and soon found himself on a bus for two hours a day with six fellow pipeline workers. It took five months to connect with each of those men in faith. Dan recalls how the spirit instructed him to use his faith to believe for each of these individuals. Praying for these men changed Dan's perception of faith. It became impossible to see these men as they were. After that five month walk in faith, God brought along a fellow believer and restaurant manager in Rangeley Colorado who encouraged Dan to publish "1 Week"
