This is a 908 page tome. And while the contents are dated at times (very dated indeed at times) it is still a really worthwhile read. Not for the easily bored however. Also it is a bit discouraging to find that so many people are no more religiously enlightened today than they were in the 1860's when the author was remonstrating against their position.(He is a Christian, but a liberal one.) I have never seen so much on this subject in one place before, however. And he truly does try to show all sides to the best of his ability. I highly recommend this tome.

Author of the Day

Matthew Bayan
Matthew Bayan is the only person in the world to die and be brought back to life 72 times. He is best known for his book, Eat Fat Be Healthy that describes this experience. Bayan however also had a very adventurous childhood and felt inspired to write down some of those memories after a high school reunion. This formed the backdrop for his coming-of-age mystery, The Firecracker King. As our Author of the Day, Bayan tells us all about it.
