"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.

Disclaimer: I purchased this book and workbook via Kindle with my own money right before Lent in 2014. Ms. Camealy gave free copies right as Lent started in 2015 and I downloaded those pdf copies just to have them in a different format and bevause I had thought about printing the journal pages for my own personal journaling use this year (last year I just kept a journal and copied down the questions/prompts from my Kindle). I was asked to leave a positive review only if I thought the book deserved it, which I do. I do not know Kris Camealy (nor anyone who does know her) nor am I affiliated with her ministry, any affiliate of her ministry, the publisher or any affiliate of the publisher. I was not compensated in any way for this review. The thoughts and words in this review are solely my own.
That was my initial thought on cracking its cover.
I was floored to find words that not only pierce the soul, but also heal it. Kris writes in living color, each sentence bursting with meaning and image, while avoiding the dry, crusty theology that can smother even the finest flame. She offers her own spiritual journey at our disposal, as we, the readers, are encouraged to plumb the depths of one of the oldest practices in church history: Lent.
The meditations she provides pair well with her Scriptural references and other quotes throughout the book. Even the artwork seems to be more of a whispered prayer than a belligerent shout, causing readers to tip-toe, as it were, up to Holy Week -- encountering Christ in every page.
My only critique is that this book should be sold with candles. It lends itself so well to the quiet, living flicker of a dancing flame that you can feel heaven's exhale. As your own heart burns within.
Through this process, I discovered anew that our brokenness leads us to a place where God will receive the glory in what He is able to accomplish in us. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is seeking to change and to allow God to work out the refining process that only He can do. And while it was wonderful to use this book as a preparation for Easter, this is a book that can be read any time- and one that I will read again. I hope that Kris Camealy will continue to share her gift of writing, because I know that many will continue to be blessed by her words.
