Challenging the Bible:: Selections from the Writings And Speeches of Robert G. Ingersoll May 25, 2008
Ingersoll thinking were clearer than crystal. A courageous man. He shows us how much rubbish remains alive for such a long time. A book I recommend to be read.
Quick read... some excellent points May 22, 2008
Honestly, I can't imagine how any religious person could read this book and walk away still being a believer. And keep in mind that Ingersoll was presenting his views in the late 1800s. My only criticism is that I wish it was a little longer and Tipton could have done a better job at catching some of the typos before the book went to press. Give it a read and see for yourself. I also recommend "What's God Got To Do With It?" by Ingersoll.

If you haven't read Robert G. Ingersoll and you are a freethinker then you need to get some of his books. He was a man way ahead of his time and so easy to read he was an excellent speaker and it shows in his essays.

This book is not for believers in the Christian Bible. But if you are a Christian Fundamentalist who likes to argue the subject of the Bible and want to bone-up on arguments that need to be defeated, this is a good guy for you to bone-up on. I have been indoctrinated and instructed on the Christian side of these arguments all my life. I bought this book to take a peek at the opposition point of view. Both sides on this argument know more than I do. But Mr. Ingersol has got to be one of the toughest, most informed, apologist for the heretics that there is out there. This guy is "bad". If you're a "believer" this is a guy you have to beat! This guy would have been burned at the stake in the 1640's.
