Overview

Somebody ought to tell the truth about the Bible. The preachers dare not, because they would be driven from their pulpits. Professors in colleges dare not, because they would lose their salaries. Politicians dare not. They would be defeated. Editors dare not. They would lose subscribers. Merchants dare not, because they might lose customers. Men of fashion dare not, fearing that they would lose caste. Even clerks dare not, because they might be discharged. And so I thought I would do it myself-Robert G. Ingersoll

Picking up Ingersoll's book and knowing his reputation as one of the early atheist writers, you expect it to be on par with Sam Harris or perhaps David Mills. It is not. It is very much a product of the late 19th century. There is much in it that we now understand to be false. Ingersoll wrote on biblical scholarship using information that was, even then, outdated. Read this as a historical snapshot of where atheism was at the time, but do not read it expecting literary or intellectual gold. It is a period piece, nothing more.
