AMERICAN ATHEIST PRESS P.O. Box 140195, Austin, TX 78714-0195 Telephone: (512) 458-1244 Telephone/FAX orders: (512) 467-9525 The eloquence of Robert G. Ingersoll in three American Atheist Press reprints ******FAITH OR AGNOSTICISM:****** The Field-Ingersoll Discussion Henry M. Field, a famous and powerful minister, addressed "An Open Letter to Robert G. Ingersoll" in the August 1887 edition of the _North American Review_. The "Great Agnostic" replied in the January 1888 issue. What resulted was one of the most important and widely publicized religious controversies of the nineteenth century. The fight was over evolution vs. creationism, the existence of evil in the world, and the doctrine of free will. Ingersoll ably defends the Atheist position on these ageless questions. Paperback. 75 pages. #5168. ******THE GREAT INFIDELS****** by Robert G. Ingersoll How often have you been asked, "What would the world be like without religion?" Ingersoll answers this old chestnut by pointing to the lives of a few great -- and nonreligious - - men, including Julian, Bruno, Voltaire, Diderot, Hume, Spinoza, Paine, Franklin, and Jefferson. Paperback. 64 pages. #5197. ******INGERSOLL THE MAGNIFICENT****** Joseph Lewis, Editor In 1957, Joseph Lewis, editor of the Atheist magazine _The Age of Reason,_ decided to research all of the writings of Robert Ingersoll to cull out his principal statements, especially in respect to religion, and assemble them into a single volume. This is Lewis's selection divided into 24 chapters. Each concerns a special subject that Ingersoll treated, including "The Holy Bible," "Christianity," "The Gods," "Origin, Design, and Destiny," "Myth and Miracle," "The Great Infidels," and "The Natural and the Supernatural." These essays have often been printed separately because of their beauty and eloquence. Ingersoll's was the most famous name on the lecture circuits when this was an art known as elocution. And he battered religion. His favored method of assault was to strip the Bible down to its most absurd premises and the ministers to their illogical positions. But he did all with the utmost grace and elegance, politely cutting the Falwells of his day to the quick. Lewis has done an excellent job; this is Ingersoll at his best, in a very easy to read, excerpted form. Paperback. 342 pages. Stock #5216. ************************* ************************* Postage and handling not included.
