"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Editorial Reviews

Review

A Conspiracy of Breath changed me, deepened my love for The Breath, and swelled my appreciation for those who sacrificed so much to ensure people like me--millennia later--could turn the parchment pages and read Truth for ourselves. I did not want to leave this story and fear Latayne has spoiled me as a reader. That's how thoroughly it captivated my heart and rearranged my definition of elegant and life-altering storytelling.--Cynthia Ruchti, Golden-Scroll winning author of 20 books, including A Fragile Hope and Song of Silence
 
Inspired by the New Testament's Epistle to the Hebrews, whose authorship is rooted in mystery, this biblical novel revolves around Priscilla, a gentile who witnesses the rise and fall of Yeshua of Nazareth's ministry and slowly converts from worshipping the Roman gods to becoming a Christian. Scott (coauthor,  Discovering the City of Sodom) vividly depicts life under Roman rule, capturing the terror of a time when Christians were subject to severe persecution. Drawing on contemporary detail is impeccable. Her absorbing prose style and skill in managing the many nuances of everyday life in the ancient world bring the historical events to life. --Library Journal, September 2017
 
Wonderful writing, characterizations that are precise and vivid, excellent historical detail, fabulous prose marked by fresh metaphors and great rhythm, and the description of romantic feelings--so hard to write--rock my world. Beautiful, lyrical.--Rosslyn Elliot, 2012 double Carol Award-winning author

Scott writes with a literary sensibility. Those who wonder who wrote the book of Hebrews (it's on my Questions to Ask God When I Get to Heaven list), and those intrigued by the person of Priscilla, will be fascinated with this well-researched, sophisticated read.--Tracy Groot, award-winning author of Madman and The Sentinels of Andersonville


If I've ever read more exquisite writing than A Conspiracy of Breath I don't know what it would be. Latayne's amazing novel inserts the reader into the ancient world of Rome and Corinth and Jerusalem and lets her feel what it would have been like to live at the time of Paul and Timothy, Aquila and Priscilla, and Latayne's unforgettable character, Cordelia--as an outlaw believer in the Name. The revelation of the book of Hebrews as received by Priscilla is
profound, such as I've never experienced it before. This story completely captures the reader. The first chapter is enthralling, hard to leave. Beautiful, mournful writing. Truly, truly unforgettable.--Sharon K. Souza, author of The Color of Sorrow Isn't Blue
