This book is a classic; it is the best critical analysis of Christianity and other organized religions I have read. Anyone contemplating a career as priest, preacher, rabbi or other practitioner of the 'pious fraud' (Paine's term) should read this book because he or she should have answers to Paine's argument before spending (or wasting)a life proclaimig mythology as truth.
