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

From the Publisher
The Wisdom of James Allen II is the second volume in a projected 6-volume set of The Complete Works of James Allen published by Laurel Creek Press. (The first volume in this series is titled: The Wisdom of James Allen: 5 Classic Works including, As a Man Thinketh, The Path to Prosperity, The Mastery of Destiny, The Way of Peace, & Entering the Kingdom ISBN: 1-889606-00-6 $9.95) Each Wisdom of James Allen volume in the Laurel Creek James Allen Wisdom series groups 3 to 5 of James Allen's short works into one book. Edited for contemporary readers by Andy Zubko (compiler and editor of The Treasury of Spiritual Wisdom), the works contained in each volume are complete and unabridged. For clarity, Zubko's editing features dividing each chapter into subcategories, and rendering obscure or archaic words, phrases, and punctuation into modern usage. James Allen often used the generic masculine, as was the common practice of his time. This was retained in order to remain true to his voice.
The next volume in this series, The Wisdom of James Allen III, contains 4 more Classic Works, including: Out from the Heart, Byways of Blessedness, From Passion to Peace, and The Heavenly Life. Volume 3 will be available by Spring 2003.
From the Author
"I looked around upon the world and saw that it was shadowed by sorrow and scorched by the fierce fires of suffering. And I looked for the cause. I looked around, but I could not find it. I looked in books, but I could not find it. I looked within, and found there both the cause and the self-made nature of that cause. I looked again, and deeper, and found the remedy. I found one Law, the Law of Love; one Life, the life of adjustment to that Law; one Truth, the Truth of a conquered mind and a quiet and obedient heart. And I dreamed of writing books which would help men and women, whether rich or poor, learned or unlearned, worldly or unworldly to find within themselves the source of all success, all happiness, accomplishment, all truth. And the dream remained with me, and at last became substantial; and now I send forth these books into the world on a mission of healing and blessedness, knowing that they cannot fail to reach the homes and hearts of those who are waiting and ready to receive them."
