This is a massive collection of the so-called "miracles," found in the history of Christianity; or, as I would call it, this is a "Dictionary of the Lies of the Christian Religion."
Quoted from the author's "Introduction."
"It is no part of this book either to maintain or to deny the historic truth of the miracles recorded, but simply to reproduce, in a compact and handy form, sufficient data to show a mode of religious thought. The truth or untruth of the statements has nothing to do with the subject, the only questions being, are the extracts here made fairly faithful, and do they represent the religious opinions of a large section of the family of man?
If a writer wished to show the religious opinions of the ancient Greeks and Romans, he would have nothing to do with the absurdity or wisdom of their myths, but only to collect them carefully, and reproduce them correctly. If, again, his object is to show the state of Assyrian art, his plain duty would be to reproduce, as faithfully as possible, the drawings to be found on Assyrian relics; but whether those drawings are in proportion or not, whether their perspective is correct or faulty, whether they are to be blamed or praised according to the rules of modern art, would be matters quite beside his business; and he would deserve the highest censure, if he omitted those specimens which seemed to him the most faulty, or attempted to improve others by correcting palpable errors. So, when a mode of religious thought is to be shown, the primary duty of the author must needs be to get together sufficient data, and leave those data to tell their own tale."
