Robert G. Ingersoll, known as the Great Agnostic, was making many of the same arguments as Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, and Sam Harris in the late 1800's. Some of his arguments are a little dated but he's still really good.

I wish this book was as well known as books written by Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens or Sam Harris.
