Letters Addressed to Col. Robert G. Ingersoll, or Infidelity Rebuked and Truth Victorious (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Letters Addressed to Col. Robert G. Ingersoll, or Infidelity Rebuked and Truth Victorious Sir: You will not, I am sure, expect from me any apology for addressing you on this subject. Your frequent and furious attacks of the Holy Scriptures on the public platform have placed you in the front of their boldest and bitterest opponents. As reported in the press, you have not hesitated even to sneer at the Bible, and unqualifiedly denounce it as a fable and a fraud. It could not reasonably be expected that those who regard the volume as the citadel of their faith and hope should remain silent under these violent and vicious onslaughts upon it. I prepose, therefore, as a believer and minister of the truth which you repudiate, with 'as much thoroughness as necessarily condensed discussion will allow, to offer for your calm and candid consideration a few thoughts in favor of the super human origin of the grand old Book - the Book of our Redeemer's gift and our fathers' faith. I assume that you are not an atheist. The oaths which you have taken at your induction into public' ofiice clearly warrant this assumption. Surely, as an honest and honorable man, you would not have pre tended to take upon you a religious obligation when you regarded such a ceremony as a farce, God a figment.
