Currently Reading: Letters from the Earth by Mark Twain

The first section of this book is the ‘letters.’ Twain wrote them as from an exiled Archangel Lucifer on Earth to his colleagues back in heaven.

He picks apart the hypocrisy and cruelty of religion with skill and the ferocity of outraged humanity. Science blogger and atheist PZ Myers would approve.

This book was not published until 1962.
