Brilliant. It's great to see clearly stated arguments and a grasp of what evidence is. A pleasure to read. The public discourse has slipped badly since his time.

This is an eloquent discussion of the atheistic point of view. This book covers nearly all the arguments against religion.

This is just the first column of Ingersoll's works. It is a fine example of the application of critical thought, reasoning, and logic to religious doctrine. The author has the mind of a scientist, the memory of an historian, and the pen of a poet!
The only criticism I have so far is that the reader will have to keep in mind that Ingersoll lived in the 1800s, and some of his thinking is a product of his time, or as the author puts it; "He was breathing the air off his time". That being said, the main thrust and ideas in this volume are still very applicable today. If you're someone who has always been a non-believer but never really stopped to question why... This volume of work can spell it out for you, and what the heck... it's public domain, so the price is right, and his writing is excellent. Can't wait to dive into the next eleven volumes!

This is not for the faint of heart nor for those who refuse to hold both faith and religion up to the cold light of day.
As a fellow atheist, I applaud his application of logic and critical thinking, although I doubt he ever converted anyone away from their chosen faith.
Right-wing fundamentalists of all faiths would probably put out a hit on him were he speaking and writing today.

Mark Twain a contemporary of Ingersoll, said as beautiful as his writings of they paled by delivery. I have read all twelve volumes. He is a rare phenomenon and in my opinion, unequaled in brilliance and mastery of the written word. John Burton

I have been an atheist for years. I've read many books during this time and have never felt so connected. Ingersoll is amazing in thought and extremely articulate. This is a must read for ALL.
