Until the publication of this annotated edition, Thomas Paine's third part of "The Age Of Reason" was extremely rare and almost unknown. Titled "Examination of the Prophecies," the book examines all the supposed prophecies of Jesus in the Old Testament alleged by the evangelists of the New Testament. With great wit and penetrating logic, Paine showed that not one of the Old Testament passages cited had anything to do with the Christian's would-be Messiah. Paine appears to have been the first writer in English to suggest that Jesus was not an historical figure.
Frank R. Zindler's marginal notes and commentary examine the Greek and Hebrew texts of the verses being discussed. They show that Paine, who knew no ancient languages and knew of none of the important biblical manuscripts that would be discovered after his death, was astonishingly correct in his critique.

The "filthy little atheist" whose memory Theodore Roosevelt reviled was no less than the man who first uttered and printed the name "The United States of America." The object of Roosevelt's scorn was Citizen Thomas Paine — born an Englishman at Thetford, on January 29, 1737, died an American on June 8, 1809. His three-part "The Age of Reason" had the purpose of liberating the human mind from the bonds of servitude in which priestcraft had held it since the dawn of civilization.
Frank R. Zindler, formerly a professor of biology and geology in the SUNY system, has been the managing editor of American Atheist Press since the brutal murder in 1995 of American Atheists' founder Madalyn Murray O'Hair and her family. His most recent book is "The Jesus the Jews Never Knew," which demonstrates that the ancient Jews never heard of Jesus of Nazareth. In fact, they had never heard of Nazareth either.
