"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.

About the Author

Chele thrived in youth groups, teaching Sunday school and Vacation Bible School into young adulthood in various churches.
In the 80s, she organized a pre-adolescent group at the church when she realized activities for kids that age fell between the cracks. 
"We had a fun behind the scenes tour of a new Chuck E Cheese in town," she recalled. "And unfortunately, there was one time an Easter party got out of hand when a few boys got into a jelly bean fight."
 After that, the group dwindled to just girls. "We organized a bowl-a-thon when the pastor challenged each member of the congregation with a twenty dollar bill each and asked them to grow funds for charity."
Even with her Sunday school class, Chele kept kids motivated by thinking outside the box.
At 19, she had her first-grade class over to bake cookies when each class was to present during a service what they had been learning. 
"We had just learned about mezuzah boxes, which are fixed to doorways in Jewish homes and hold scripture. So we made square sugar cookies and bagged them separately with a strip of Bible verse."   The project was a lot of fun and the congregation was surprised with treats.
 Later, with her small pre-teen class, she thought it would be nice to go out for breakfast at a nearby diner. "I had the parents' permission, of course," she laughed. "And since there were only two students, we enjoyed a casual chat. The kids liked the change of scenery."
