Summary:

The Age of Reason written by legendary author Thomas Paine is widely considered to be one of the top 100 greatest books of all time. This great classic will surely attract a whole new generation of readers. The book was a bestseller in America, where it caused a short-lived deistic revival.

British audiences, however, fearing increased political radicalism as a result of the French revolution, received it with more hostility. The Age of Reason presents common deistic arguments; for example, it highlights the corruption of the Christian Church and criticizes its efforts to acquire political power. Paine advocates reason in the place of revelation, leading him to reject miracles and to view the Bible as an ordinary piece of literature rather than as a divinely inspired text. The Age of Reason is not atheistic, but deistic: it promotes natural religion and argues for a creator-God.

    The reader isn't Carl. It's apparently a guy named Steve Brown, who was terrible. The reader mispronounced several Biblical names, and the audio quality was awful. Definitely not worth a monthly fee. Sorry to give the book a bad review, but it was the worst one I've heard on Audiobooks. It should have been a free book like audio books from Libra Vox. And frankly I didn't even agree with Thomas Paine's analysis of the Bible.
