A Brutal Condemnation of a Cruel Diety
Samuel Clemens is the unsung hero of anti-theism. In these letters, he presents a compelling case for the rejection of Christianity and shines the light of reason on the abhorrently cruel god of the bible.
This edition of the book is poorly typeset. The publisher uses double and single primes instead of proper quotation marks and apostrophes, and double hyphens instead of em dashes. There are two or more typos as well.
