"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

From the Inside Flap

"In this fresh, reworked edition of The Forgotten Ways, Hirsch continues to engage, challenge, and inspire us as we explore what it means to fully be God's church in an ever-changing cultural landscape. A must-read."
--Jo Saxton, chair of the board, 3dmovements; church planter, author, and speaker

"The Forgotten Ways has been a road map for missional movements. The map is now updated with even more insight and ten more years of learning."
--Neil Cole, Movement Catalyst; author of Organic Church, Church 3.0, and Primal Fire

"I referred to the first edition of this book as a 'full-blooded and comprehensive call for the complete orientation of the church around mission,' and that is no less true for this updated version. With the benefit of ten years of experience in teaching these concepts around the world, Hirsch has freshened his groundbreaking work for a new generation of readers."
--Michael Frost, author of Road to Missional and Surprise the World

"I heartily recommend The Forgotten Ways to church planters and ministry leaders around the world. This significant text's fresh recovery of and call to a dynamic missional movement paradigm has shaped my thinking and practice."
--Mark Reynolds, vice president of leadership programs, Redeemer City to City

"The Forgotten Ways was a catalytic force of God in my own life, and it remains on my must-read list for anyone interested in the church and mission. Prophet, priest, teacher, and leader, Hirsch is an essential voice to our generation."
--Danielle Strickland, speaker, author, and Salvation Army officer

"A navigational chart for pastors and churches willing to brave a journey of faith, courage, and sacrifice beyond the safety of comfortable shores for the sake of the gospel."
--Mark DeYmaz, directional leader, Mosaic Church of Central Arkansas; author of Building a Healthy Multi-Ethnic Church

"In this rebel camp we call the church planting community, The Forgotten Ways has long been one of the great fires around which we have gathered to dream. Now, with fresh and important fuel for a radical rethinking of church, this fire is spreading a new hope for apostolic movement within every part of the church."
--Graham Singh, executive director, Church Planting Canada; pasteur, St. James Montréal

"Reading The Forgotten Ways when it was first published revolutionized the way I understood God's mission, the essence of the church, and my participation in both. I didn't think it was possible, but with this second edition, Hirsch provides even greater clarity and challenge."
--Brad Brisco, coauthor of Missional Essentials and Next Door as It Is in Heaven

"Hirsch revisits The Forgotten Ways like a jackhammer revisits concrete. This book shatters our narrow vistas, revealing the broad panorama of Jesus's mission."
--Ralph Moore, author of Starting a New Church and Making Disciples

"Hirsch has gone on a quest with this latest work. There is nothing more important than seeking to rediscover our identity and purpose as established by the Lord of the church; it truly is a journey, but one that is essential and well worth it."
--Tammy Dunahoo, Foursquare Church

"The church, even new versions, needs to be constantly re-formed. Hirsch offers a comprehensive and illuminating guide for the task."
--Michael Moynagh, author of Church for Every Context; Wycliffe Hall, Oxford

"Hirsch does what he does best: he helps us remember our past so that we can reimagine our future. Read the book and become part of this emerging future; too much is at stake to settle for anything less."
--Dave Rhodes, pastor of discipleship and movement initiatives, Grace Fellowship Church; lead team director, 100 Movements

From the Back Cover

A Fully Revised Edition of the Paradigm-Shifting Classic

"No book has influenced my thinking about leading a church and a church planting movement more than The Forgotten Ways. Alan Hirsch is the leading missiologist of our day and his genius is on display in this work, which helps us rediscover what the church of Jesus Christ was always meant to be. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to every church leader!"
--Dave Ferguson, lead pastor, Community Christian Church; lead visionary, NewThing

"Alan Hirsch will ignite your imagination, challenging you to dream bigger and experience the kingdom more fully. The Forgotten Ways is a focused yet comprehensive book that beautifully and effectively moves us forward as God designed. Simply put, this book continues to be a game changer."
--Jen and Brandon Hatmaker, authors, humanitarians, and church planters

"A seminal book that has changed and continues to change the landscape of church multiplication. It challenges our current paradigm of church growth and unleashes the power of the early church's initial advances. This book is a critical tool in the arsenal of anyone seeking to multiply the church."
--Todd Wilson, director, Exponential

"The Forgotten Ways is one of those few books that I find myself revisiting again and again and again. It is foundational for understanding mission and irreplaceable as a guide for the church's new situation in the West--a landmark book for our missional movement. This new edition speaks to the power and vision of Alan Hirsch. I could not be more grateful for this book."
--David Fitch, author of Faithful Presence; Northern Seminary

"Hirsch has discovered the formula that unlocks the secrets of the ecclesial universe like Einstein's simple . . . formula (E=mc²) unlocked the secrets of the physical universe. There are some books good enough to read to the end. There are only a few books good enough to read to the end of time. The Forgotten Ways is one of them."
--Leonard Sweet, theologian, author, and futurist

"For a decade, Hirsch has simmered on the revolutionary ideas he presented in the first edition of The Forgotten Ways. In this new edition, he develops his thoughts further and recommends ways to apply them and move confidently into a hopeful, vibrant, movemental future. Stunning."
--Linda Bergquist, church planting catalyst and coach; coauthor of Church Turned Inside Out

"Hirsch has been a major influence in the way I think about the mission of the church and more importantly, the way I live church. The Forgotten Ways must be remembered, must be read, must be integrated into your life, leadership, and local church context."
--Greg Nettle, president, Stadia

"An amazing work of analysis, synthesis, and application. Hirsch provides a timely, well-informed overview of the range of current thinking and writing on movemental Christianity and draws rich insights that, if ignited by the Holy Spirit, can revolutionize many churches today."
--Howard A. Snyder, author of The Problem of Wineskins; visiting director, Manchester Wesley Research Centre

"Only a handful of books have set the stage for God to have a conversation with the whole church about his mission. The Forgotten Ways is one of those books, now available with critical updates."
--Hugh Halter, author, church planter, and director of Forge America
