"I know of no book that contains more real and valuable information upon the origin of Christianity." -R.G. Ingersoll

BIBLE MYTHS, and their Parallels in other Religions: Being a Comparison of the Old and New Testament Myths and Miracles with those of Heathen Nations of Antiquity. Considering also their Origin and Meaning. With numerous illustrations. 1 vol. royal, 8vo, cloth, 600 pages, Price $4.00.

"The author of "BIBLE MYTHS" has succeeded in showing that our bible is not the great central fire giving light to the world, but a collection of candles and tapers and sparks borrowed by the "chosen people" from those whom Jehovah, according to the Scriptures, had left in the darkness of nature." R.G. INGERSOLL.

THE APOCRYPHAL NEW TESTAMENT. A Literary and Theological Curiosity. 1 volume, royal 8vo, cloth, $1.50.

"Every freethinker ought to have the Apocryphal New Testament, so that he may judge of the intellectual condition of the men who made our religion." R.G. INGERSOLL.

A SHORT HISTORY OF THE BIBLE: Being an account of the Formation and Development of the Canon. By Bronson C. Keeler. Price cloth, 75 cents. Paper. 50 cents.

"I have read Mr. Keeler's book with great pleasure and profit. He gives, in my opinion, a clear and intelligent account of the growth of the bible. He shows why books were received as inspired, and why they were rejected. Every minister, every college professor, and every man who really wishes to know something about the origin and growth of the bible, should read this book." R.G. INGERSOLL.

MODERN THINKERS, WHAT THEY THINK, AND WHY. By Prof. Van Buren Denslow. With an introduction by R. G. Ingersoll. With eight portraits; Comte, Swedenborg, Adam Smith, Jeremy Bentham, Paine, Fourier, Herbert Spencer, and Prof. Ernst Haeckel. Price, $1.50.

"It should be read by every Freethinker and student; it is one of the great Liberal books of the day, and will make a sensation." - Truth Seeker.

SUPERSITION IN ALL AGES. Price $1.50; paper, $1.00. This powerful work, which has attracted so much public attention of late years, is an arraignment of the Christian Religion by that heroic old priest, Jean Meslier, who, after being many years within the Church, yet had the courage to denounce its superstitions, and of whom it is related by Voltaire that on his death-bed he asked God's pardon for having taught Christianity. The work is well written and convincing.

THE MARTRYDOM OF MAN. By Winwood Reade. Cloth, $1.75.

"The Martrydom of Man is a wonderful book. It is written with tenderness and truth - a mingling of pity and indignation - of love and hope. Every leaf is alive, and there is not a dead word in the book. In a succession of pictures, vivid as life, he tells the great tragedy of the crucifixion of man. Every lover of intellectual liberty should become acquainted with one of her bravest sons - Winwood Reade." R.G. INGERSOLL.
