Recommended for: Mark Twain enthusiasts

I think that rather than the Biblical references, the real selling point of this book is it's collection of unpublished and obscure works by Mark Twain. It's a must have for any collector.

This is a collection of Mark Twain's satirical writings on the Bible. Some of them are unfinished and others are relatively unknown. They range from clever mockery (Letters From Earth) to romantic tragedy (The Diaries of Adam and Eve).

My one complaint about this book is that it tries to do too much. Mark Twain addressed the Bible and Christianity in almost every work he produced, so the title of this book is a little drab. Mark Twain mocking the Bible? So what else is new?
