"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 highly recommend The Glimpse; I found it to be a spellbinding novel whose ramifications I cannot stop considering. I had a hard time putting it down as it not only was gripping, but it also resonated with truth that is eerily prophetic." Scott Steinman- Junior High Teacher and Youth Group Leader

"This book is a must read. I could say it is well written; and it is. I could say it has a great plot; and it does. If you don't remember the message, you will remember the story..The message in the book goes beyond any ranking system." Gabrielle Poplar- Author

"This is a well written book for anyone interested in the gradual decline of the world in general and the area of Christianity specifically. I give it five stars and recommend without reservation!" Reba Ponder Weiss- Christian Author

"The Glimpse made me seriously ponder certain things about my christian walk. For one it showed me how I wasn't really taking God's word as seriously as I should be. It also showed me how there is so much more I could be doing to help spread God's word and his love." Daniel W. 16 year old

"This is one of the best books that I have read. It was very well done and kept my attention to the very end. The end took me completely by surprise" Amazon Reviewer

"My husband, who usually doesn't share my enthusiasm for Christian books, devoured this book in one day and highly recommended it." Jo Ann Blackwell -Amazon Reviewer

"By far the best fiction book I have read. It is very hard to find a book that challenges your Christian walk from cover to cover in the way that this book does." Rachel Stoltzfus- College Student

From the Author

Growing up, I never saw myself writing Christian books, much less Christian fiction, but I've learned that sometimes God gives us dreams we never could have imagined ourselves. For most authors, a book starts off as an idea that grows over time into a storyline. For me, it was quite different. Early one morning, my wife woke me up saying she had just experienced the most vivid dream in her life, and she went on to tell me every detail. Her dream went on to become the outline for The Glimpse. I feel that I am just as much a scribe as a writer in this instance. While this story is not intended to give predictions of the future, the Lord has shown me several reasons why this story is so important and relevant to the American church right now.

  • 70-80% of Christian youth leave the Church once they reach college age. The result is that the American Church body is slowly dying out.

  • For those in the Millennial generation  (born from 1982 to 2002) fewer than 1% hold to a biblical worldview. God's Word is no longer seen as absolute truth.

  • There have been several instances in recent news where Christians in America were persecuted for publicly preaching the Gospel.

My prayer is that this book will make an impact on Christianity in America, and around the world for the sake of Christ's Kingdom. It's a big goal, but with God all things are possible.
