    Thomas Paine's The Age of Reason; Being an Investigation of True and Fabulous Theology, published in three parts from 1794, was a best seller in America, where it caused a short-lived deistic revival. Promoting a creator-God while advocating reason in the place of revelation, Paine’s controversial pamphlet caused his native British audience, fearing the results of the French Revolution, to receive it with more hostility than their American counterparts.

    I love this work, particularly the second part where in Thomas Paine quotes specific passages to make his points. Robin Field did an excellent job narrating and you feel as if Paine were actually reading it to an audience. I have but one small critique and that is there is a delayed echo (by about 3 seconds) barely audible underneath the narration that can be a bit distracting if you are listening with headphones on. Otherwise this was a great buy.

    Most of Paine's criticisms against the christian scriptures are as compelling as they were in his time.
