The book "The Abominations of Modern Society" explores the abominations or the evil practices prevailing in this modern world. It is a Christian book which explores and talks in great details about the topics of drinking, fashion, sexuality, pornography, adultery, prostitution, incest, fornication, night clubs, gambling, blasphemy, gambling, and administrative taxes imposed on the common people. The most striking point that the book eloquently asserts is: The best being that God ever made is a good woman, and the worst that the devil ever made is a bad one. The author has written the book with a view to contribute to the society which he seems is rapidly degenerating. The insight is very deep and highly ingenious. Reverend Dr. Thomas De Witt Talmage (7 January 1832 - 12 April 1902) was a preacher, clergyman and divine in the United States who held pastorates in the Reformed Church in America and Presbyterian Church. He was one of the most prominent religious leaders in the United States during the mid- to late-19th century, equaled as a pulpit orator perhaps only by Henry Ward Beecher. He also preached to crowds in England. During the 1860s and 70s, Talmage was a well-known reformer in New York City and was often involved in crusades against vice and crime. During the last years of his life, Dr. Talmage ceased preaching and devoted himself to editing, writing, and lecturing. At different periods he was editor of the Christian at Work (1873-76), New York; the Advance (1877-79), Chicago; Frank Leslie's Sunday Magazine (1879-89), New York; and the Christian Herald (1890-1902), New York. For years his sermons were published regularly in more than 3,000 journals, through which he was said to reach 25,000,000 readers.
