"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.

On her website, the author describes her work as “offbeat fiction for clever readers,” and Shattered Walls is absolutely that. To me, it comes off as ultra-original and yet ultra-familiar, and though Shattered Walls is set about twenty years after the Resurrection, it also reads as ultra-contemporary with the book’s microscopic attention to psychological, technological, and scientific realism.
Now you might think, is a book going to work where angels make offhand references to neuroreceptors, or say things like “Your stress hormones are pegged”? You might say to yourself, shouldn’t angels be saying King James things like “Be not afraid, for behold I bring you tidings of great joy?”
But on the other hand, why shouldn’t angels be scientifically advanced? After all, they aren’t limited by the understandings of humans of any age. They are beings who have spent thousands of years in the presence of God, honing their organization, hierarchies, roles, and effectiveness. Why shouldn’t they behave with the technical expertise and teamwork of a Google project team, and the bravery, fury, and service ethos of the US military, while exhibiting the love, care, insight, and consideration of social workers and clinical psychologists?
All this, of course, along with a genuine, heartfelt dedication to God and God’s plan for the world. And the cherry on top: they all have sparkling senses of humor and a penchant for a quip, especially during the worst moments of a crisis.
I’ll tell you what: I like these angels. And I haven't even gotten to the humans, who hold their own as well.
Now, about plot and characters: the two leads are Remiel and Zadkiel, female angels (yes, these angels have gender) who are investigating a super-secret weapons project in Hell being organized by a higher-up in the infernal hierarchy, an aptly-named demon named Hastle.
Of course, the infiltration of the weapon’s workshop goes awry and both angels find themselves in unfamiliar circumstances. The race is on to figure out what exactly happened, how it is related to the weapon, and what consequences there will be from the initial snafu. Hint: potentially enormous for individual angels and the angel realm as a whole.
Big kudos to Jane Lebak for unraveling and weaving back together this highly entertaining and intricate ball of yarn. Good stuff
This one only gets a four because it's confusing to me on the,details of the weapon, but I won't SPOIL the book .
I LOVE the interaction with Mary and the Christian community .
Keep writing more . I confess I'm almost afraid of Book five after reading about it a bit.
But I will read it .
What's scary is as always is the power the evil one has . We must ALWAYS PRAY TO CHRIST to protect us and to love Him in all things.
I can't wait for Mrs. LeBak to release her next work!
