Audiobook Summary: Thomas Paine's The Age of Reason; Being an Investigation of True and Fabulous Theology , published in three parts from 1794, was a best seller in America, where it caused a short-lived deistic revival. Promoting a creator-God while advocating reason in the place of revelation, Paine's controversial pamphlet caused his native British audience, fearing the results of the French Revolution, to receive it with more hostility than their American counterparts. This passionate and engaging recording of Paine's classic is as certain to provoke modern listeners to thought as it did his original audience.
