"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.

“Ingersoll has done the sociology of religion an enormous service by providing a more nuanced description of the ongoing personal and institutional struggles of the minority of conservative Protestants who identify themselves both evangelical and feminist.”
-Sally K. Gallagher,Oregon State University
“It is the trend in scholarship these days to argue that women find empowerment in restriction. Ingersoll argues, however, that an alternative interpretation may be that subordinate living may empower a form of relational power.”
-Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion
“The feminist resistance [Ingersoll] documents, if able to assert itself, could have profound consequences not only for evangelical women but for the rest of us as well, by opening up the door for a detente in our current culture wars.”
-The Women's Review of Books
“Especially valuable for religious studies and women’s studies scholars and sociologists of religion interested in gender and/or women in religious movements.”
“These war stories from women in the evangelical subculture are fascinating. What did they do? How do they survive? Why do they stay? And what is going on in that subculture anyway? Part history, part ethnography, part cultural criticism, Ingersoll has made an important contribution to our understanding of religion and gender in our time and in our culture.”
-Betty DeBerg,author of Ungodly Women: Gender and the First Wave of American Fundamentalism

The chapter on Albert Mohler's rise to power at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary was disturbing, but not surprising. It has largely gone unread by most evangelicals part of the Gospel Coalition club, crossway publishers, and conservative denominations - not surprisingly, of course, the same institutions and groups that produce similar domineering figures besides Mohler like Tullian T, Mark Driscoll, and others. Because the author no longer identifies as Christian, people have swept this book under the rug, but it remains a valid study nevertheless.
The interviews were absolutely eye-opening.
