Item description

Steve Allen On the Bible, Religion, Morality by Steve Allen This 428 page hard cover book is in Very Good condition. Price clipped. Inscription on inside, no other writing, torn, or folded pages. Spine and cover boards are clean and straight, binding is tight, corners are sharp. Dust jacket has light shelf/reading wear.
