This review is from: The Age of Reason (Optimized for Kindle) (Kindle Edition)
This is an excellent and easily readable example of the out-pourings of a brilliant and critically thinking mind.
His criticisms of religion and the bible in particular are rapier sharp and have as much relevance now 200 years later as they did then.
He destroys the biblical claims to be the word of god and to infallibility, and points out the moral outrages in the Old Testament committed both by the "heroic figures" and by god.
The New Testament does not escape and Jesus gets the same treatment.
His arguments are germane and entirely rational, and completely contrary to the fundamentalist Christian brigade.
NB part III is not included in this edition which is a major oversight.
