Stars in God's Sky Paperback – March 1, 2009
"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.

If Faith Cook wrote a comic book, I would buy it! I love her tendency to bypass the all-stars and focus on the "dirt disciples" who simply slug it out in faithfulness to Jesus.....I hope preachers read her stuff - it'll both nourish their souls and improve their sermon illustrations!'--Dr Dale Ralph Davis
'Stars in God's sky' is just vintage Faith Cook. Don't miss out on this new treasure; instead, buy, read, enjoy, be blessed, and share with others!'--Roger Carswell

Unfortunately, these are very short biographies. There are about 17 pages per biography, with one of those being a "title page" with the person's name, a 1 paragraph summary, and then the back side is blank. So, 15 pages of real text per person. And what can do really do with that? Historical and cultural background needs provided. The person needs completely introduced since we know nothing of them. There's really only time left to hit the highlights in a very brief way. I didn't really feel like I "knew" the people I was reading about. They were shallow enough that I wasn't really engaged in each story. This sort of shallow overview might be helpful with "famous" people to have some familiarity with their name, but it doesn't really accomplish as much with an unknown.
This isn't a bad book. I could see someone getting some encouragement from one of the life stories, and the writing itself is capable enough. But, this is just too shallow for me to rate more than 3 stars, or as just "okay."
