About The Book
THOMAS PAINE
In 1774, Thomas Paine, thirty-seven years of age, landed unknown and penniless in the American colonies. Born at Thetford, Norfolk, England, Jan. 29, 1737, of poor Quaker parents, he had tried many occupations, and had succeeded in none. Within two years he had become an intellectual leader of the American Revolution. Beginning his literary career with an attack on slavery, he continued it in 1776 by publishing his pamphlet "Common Sense," which gave an electric inspiration to the cause of separation and republicanism among the colonists. After serving the new commonwealth in office and with his pen, he went to France on an official mission in 1781; then returned to his native England, intent on furthering his views. In 1793 Paine wrote the first part of "The Age of Reason," which aroused a storm of indignation, but undaunted, he added a second and a third part to the work, consisting mostly of amplifications of some of the contentions advanced in the first part, in the writing of which Paine had no Bible to consult. The book, the first part of which was published in 1794, the second part in 1795, and the third in 1801, is an exposition of Deism on a purely scientific basis; the visible creation was everything to Paine in his reasonings, the religious hopes, fears and aspirations of men were nothing at all--this universal human phenomenon was curtly dismissed by him as a universal human delusion. Many of his comments on the Bible were rather crude anticipations of the modern Higher Criticism. But in dealing with the Bible, Paine showed the animus of a prosecuting counsel rather than the impartiality of a judge. His stormy life ended on July 8, 1809. (See also ECONOMICS, Vol. XIV.)

Thomas Paine did a terrific job on letting people know the truth about God. Christianity and organized religions are nothing but concoctions and systems that draw from cults and pagan religions that went on at the time. Paine offers irrefutable arguments against the veracity of the Bible on ethical, chronological, and historical premises. This is the ultimate test any Christian should take to challenge their faith: read this book. It's not just about dismantling obsolete and flawed theology--it's about becoming more ethical and evolved. I wholeheartedly recommend and endorse this book.

If your pious, read it. Don't worry nothing can shake the need to believe. If your not pious, its a treat to read! Such a great book for the time period. Regardless of your belief system, I highly recommend it.

I haven't read the whole book yet but it has brought up very good arguments so far. I also have researched Thomas Paine and the reason i wanted to read this is because he spent the remainder of his life (falloween the publishing) in poverty becuase of the arguments in this book. No one would excepted them so he was outcast. This book is definetly revolutional.

The harmful effects organized religion has had on the world may be obvious to us in hindsight, but Paine was able to point them out at a time when the churches still had absoulute power over the world, and for this the world owes him an enormous debt of gratitude.

In this outstanding book, Thomas Paine lets the reader know that you do not have to limit yourself to either Christianity and the other various 'revealed' religions or to atheism. You become aware that a great alternative to both is the natural religion/spiritual philosophy of Deism! Paine exposes the Bible for what it is - the ranting and ravings of superstitious fanatics. He shows how the Bible portrays God as a jealous, violent idiot! It's very shocking at first. Then you realize what you've been fed all these years! Reading THE AGE OF REASON is very spiritually liberating. It's not for the religious, but it is for the spiritual! I'm proud to say that I'm a Deist and belong to the World Union of Deists, thanks to Mr. Paine's great book! Robert L. Johnson
