Not only is the book excellent... but the reading and narration are superb! I love audio books, especially of non-fiction, but I have put some down after not being able to get past some peccadillo of the reader. I forgot this was Rick Henzel reading, which is the greatest compliment I can give..! (I'd love this to be required reading/listening for our many and various fundamentalist brethren)..."
--Rev. David Weber, elder, North Texas Conference United Methodist Church

"I just completed your enormously entertaining, intellectually intoxicating, extremely balanced exploration of Mark Twain's religions principles and prejudices. What an invigorating journey it's been..."
--Lawrence Bommer, theatre critic, The Chicago Reader

MARK TWAIN'S VIEWS OF RELIGION by Caroline Thomas Harnsberger

Listen to the Preface HERE

This examination of Mark Twain's religious views, by Caroline Thomas Harnsberger (Everyone's Mark Twain, Mark Twain Family Man, Mark Twain Loved Cats, etc.) is an excellent and personal review of Mark Twain's religious philosphy. Ms. Harnsberger enjoyed a twenty year friendship with Mark Twain's lone surviving offspring, Clara Clemens Samossoud, from 1942 until Clara's death in 1962. In Mark Twain's Views Of Religion, Ms. Harnsberger presents Mark Twain's most personal and considered opinions on the full range of religious thought, including Catholicism:"If I ever change my religion, I shall change to that," Christian Science: "The very best part of the Christian Science philosophy brings healing to the spirit and is estimably valuable...," and The Bible "To trust the God of the Bible is to trust an irascible, vindictive, fierce and ever fickle and changeful master..." Harnsberger also includes many heretofore unpublished comments which Clemens penciled into the margins of his personal library of philosophical writings--such gems as: "Statesmanship and assmanship are spelt different;" "Heaven for climate--Hell for society;" and "...of all the delights of this world man cares most for sexual would never guess--he has left it out of his heaven! Prayer takes its place." 87 minutes. Available only from
