"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

"Francine Rivers puts readers right into the history of the moment..." -- Romantic Times
"Franicine Rivers without a doubt is one of the finest storytellers of our generation. She transports the reader to another time another place with such skill that one feels every emotion, every trauma, every life. Her adventures captured me from the first page until I breathlessly closed the book in absolute awe of her God-given talent. Francine unlocks the longing in each one of us to connect to God in a deeper, life-changing way. No one reading her books will ever be the same again." -- Debbie Macomber, New York Times Best-selling Author
"The Mark of the Lion series was my first introduction to Francine Rivers, and since its introduction I've been reading everything Francine writes. Her stories are not only gripping entertainment, they are life-changing adventures. As we `watch' Hadassah and Atretes struggle through first-century trials, we learn how to handle similar situations in the twenty-first century. The `costumes' may vary, but our Victorious Lord does not change." -- Angela Hunt, Award-Winning Author of Doesn't She Look Natural
"Francine Rivers writes from her heart to touch the hearts of her readers. Her books are essential reading for all who love Christian Fiction..." -- Bodie Thoene, winner of 8 ECPA Gold Medallion Awards for Christian Fiction
"More than a dozen years ago, a bookseller urged me to read the Mark of the Lion trilogy. I devoured each novel, drawn into Hadassah's world and challenged by Hadassah's faith. Page by page, I walked the streets of Jerusalem, of Rome, of Ephesus, led by a sure hand. Not only did Francine thoroughly research her setting; she also plumbed the depths of God's Word and the desperate corners of the human heart to create a story so gripping, so spiritually and emotionally satisfying, it could only come from a pen wholly dedicated to God. In a word, Francine redefined Christian fiction--honest, unflinching, powerful, life-changing--demonstrating why storytelling is the most effective way to communicate God's truth. Every Christian novelist writing today owes a debt of gratitude to Francine Rivers for lighting the way." -- Liz Curtis Higgs, author of the best-selling Lowlands of Scotland series --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
About the Author
Francine Rivers began her literary career at the University of Nevada, Reno, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and journalism. From 1976 to 1985, she had a successful writing career in the general market, and her books were highly acclaimed by readers and reviewers. Although raised in a religious home, Francine did not truly encounter Christ until later in life, when she was already a wife, a mother of three, and an established romance novelist.
Francine and her husband, Rick, live in Northern California and enjoy the time spent with their three grown children and every opportunity to spoil their grandchildren.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book, in particular, is my very favorite. Such a deep, thought provoking story that leaves you breathless (literally). It is NOT recommended that you finish this book without the second one readily available.
A classic book I will read again and again for the rest of my life!
And Hadassah, if we could all be like her, trusting God, even in the hard times. I love the example Rivers has given us here, not throwing Christianity in the reader's face, but perfectly illustrating who Christ is. Rivers gives us a lovely character in Hadassah. She quietly faces all that comes at her: death, life, persecution, illness, even love, with a bold strength. Knowing she is covered by the blood of Christ and she is never alone.
If you are looking for a way to get excited about reading the bible, Rivers presents a visual launching pad. A Voice in The Wind, is set in a very bloody time period, so this book is not meant for the squeamish. However, Rivers does historical fiction with class; telling the story without dwelling on the violence.
But the reason you read this story is because of a little girl named Hadassah. She vaults herself beyond it all. It is because of Hadassah that I recommend this book to all. You will read this book more than once. Read it. Allow it to inspire you as it did me. And buy it for someone else to enjoy. May we all be able to have the faith and strength of Hadassah in the world ahead.
