"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.

Mrs. Towriss is a very fine author and I have read all her books. Would like a #2 for this one as the characters are so engaging and well fleshed out. This is one I will read again soon. Thanks Carole for a delightful time with Othni and his "prize of war".
Prize of War is a well-researched Biblical fiction account of Acsah, the daughter of Caleb who was offered as a prize to the one who conquered the city of Kiriath-Sepher. I have read of her in the numerous times I've read through the Old Testament, but had never really taken much time to consider her story. I'm so glad that the author didn't just read through as I did.
The author did a great job of showing customs and daily life routines from this ancient time in a way that made them part of the story instead of a lesson in how to. Some of the many activities that were included in this way were farming, brick-making, cooking, and weaving.
Acsah struggled with the life change involved in moving from Hebron to her new city, she lost sight of the omnipresence of God and felt abandoned by Him. She also struggled with trusting Him instead of putting her reliance on men.
Prize of War is thought-provoking, interesting, and gives a better picture of the events, times and experiences of the people of the Bible, and a great reminder that God is always with us and will never leave us or forsake us.
I'm looking forward to reading more books by this author.
