"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.

He coaxes her through take offs and landings and she marvels at his knowledge, strength and relationship with God. She went on this two week trip to forget her past yet he has dedicated his entire life to his calling.
But the mission field changes Camille. Helping the sick gives her new purpose as she beings to wonder if she could live her life here, too. When their plane is hijacked and Luke becomes ill with malaria, she misses not one, but two flights home. Her state side job is in danger and when she returns to Alabama, she quickly finds out her life is in danger, too. She’s in more peril at home than in the jungles of Brazil.
Luke who has also flown home for the winter months and to recuperate under his mother’s care rushes to Camille’s side. Is he just looking for someone who will return to the mission field with him or someone who will be his lifelong partner? Will Camille manage to untangle herself from her past?
From Anaconda bites to broken bones to malaria, all cared for under impossible conditions, this inspirational look at the mission field leaves the reader with a deep appreciation of their own more fortunate circumstances. Ms. Carver’s amazing ability to paint the scenery as well as the development of her character’s emotions using her poignant words touches the heart.
dedication to the work they do is hard to imagine. I liked the characters and the story line.
I thought it would have been a better book if the scrapes the characters ended up in had been fleshed out more. They overcame the problems so easily, except the episode of Malaria.
I would recommend the book.
They were so real that it was easy to feel like you knew each one. It felt like a true story and may have had some similar stories of trips made to different places where both medical and evangelistic work was done by the teams. It is clear that the purpose of all the work done was to share Jesus with as many people as possible. The love story enhances the real motivation behind the work on the Amazon. I highly recommend this book.
