"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

"I don't care if you're not a conservative Presbyterian; you still need to read For a Continuing Church. It tells an important yet often neglected story in the history of American evangelicalism—combining original research and outstanding engagement with current scholarship. . . . It should be read widely, not only by historians, but by anyone who wants to think carefully about the intersection of faith and culture." --Matthew J. Hall, Vice President of Academic Services, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"This is about far more than the PCA. This book is nothing less than a history of Presbyterianism in the twentieth century—with all its theological wrangling, all its political maneuvering, all its failings, and all its faithfulness. This is certainly a story worth telling, and Sean tells it very well." --Kevin DeYoung, Senior Pastor, University Reformed Church

"Full of both inspiring moments and cautionary tales. . . . A faithful and engaging retelling of the church's past in the service of her present and future calling." --Stephen J. Nichols, President, Reformation Bible College; Chief Academic Officer, Ligonier Ministries

About the Author

Sean Michael Lucas (PhD, Westminster Theological Seminary) is senior minister at the First Presbyterian Church in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and associate professor of church history at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi.
