Atheist Manifesto: The Case Against Christianity, Judaism, and Islam

Front Cover
Arcade Pub., 2008 - 246 pages

Documenting the ravages from religious intolerance over the centuries, the author makes a strong case against the three religions for demanding faith, belief, obedience and submission, and for extolling the "next life" at the expense of the here and now. - Publisher.
