The Bible According to Mark Twain

by Mark Twain

Book review

In this brilliant and hilarious compilation of essays, letters, diaries, and excerpts—some never before published—Mark Twain takes on Heaven and Hell, sinners and saints and showcases his own unique approach to the Holy Scriptures including
*ADAM AND EVE'S DIVERGENT ACCOUNTS OF THEIR DOMESTIC TROUBLES
*SATAN'S TAKE ON OUR CONCEPT OF THE AFTERLIFE
*METHUSELAH'S DISCUSSION OF AN ANCIENT VERSION OF BASEBALL
*ADVICE ON HOW TO DRESS AND TIP PROPERLY IN HEAVEN

Behind the humor of these pieces, readers will see Twain's serious thoughts on the relationship between God and man, biblical inconsistencies, Darwinism, science, and the impact of technology on religious beliefs. The Bible According to Mark Twain is vintage Twain and is sure to surprise, delight, and perhaps shock modern readers.
