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.
