The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 1

D. M. Bennett's Works

D. M. Bennett's Works.

A Truth Seeker Around the World. Four large volumes. With a steel plate engraving of the author in Vol. I. and each volume illustrated with forty-seven cuts. By D. M. Bennett. Late editor of The Truth Seeker, author of "A Truth Seeker in Europe," "Gods and Religions of Ancient and Modern Times, "The World's Sages, Thinkers, and Reformers," "Champions of the Church," etc., etc. Handsomely bound in red cloth, $6.50; in leather, red edges, $9.50; in morocco, gilt edges, $10.50.

Readers of The Truth Seeker know the circumstances under which this work was written. The last words penned by the great author were for the fourth volume, which was nearly completed at his death, and which contains an account of his world-lamented death and burial. Mr. Bennett was a very patient and faithful chronicler of the habits and customs of the different peoples of the many places he visited. The every-day life of all nations is laid before the reader by one who has visited them and beheld them with is own eyes. Particular attention Is paid to the progress of Free thought in the various countries he visited, and the morality of so-called pagan nations is contrasted with the morality of Christian countries, much to the detriment of the latter. The work Is a "Freethinker's History of the World." This Work and "A Truth Seeker in Europe" should be in every Liberal's library. Besides its intrinsic worth it is a memento of one or the greatest Freethinkers the world has known—of one who ranks with Voltaire and Paine in the force and clearness of his writings.

What Objections to Christianity? A discussion between D. M. Bennett and G. M. Mair, divided into the following theses: 1. Christianity is neither new nor original, being borrowed or copied from much older systems of religion, (a) The belief in an offspring being begotten by a god upon a human virgin is nearly a thousand years older than the mythical story of Jesus and his virgin mother. (b) Other so-called saviors and redeemers have been believed in and reported to have been crucified and to have died on the cross many hundreds of years before the same was said of Jesus, (c) There is not a dogma, rite, sacrament, or ceremony in Christianity that did not exist in pagan systems from five hundred to two thousand years before Christianity was known in the world.

2. Miracles and supernatural achievements have been as fully and truly ascribed to other teachers and founders of religion as to Jesus.

3. The story of Jesus and his mission in the world is unhistorical; it is not corroborated by contemporaneous history.

Bennett affirms; Mair denies. This is an exhaustive discussion. Price,-$1.50.
