The Fair Haven
A Work in Defence of the Miraculous Element in Our Lord's Ministry Upon Earth, Both as Against Rationalistic Impugners and Certain Orthodox Defenders, by the Late John Pickard Owen, With A Memoir of the Author by William Bickersteth OweneBook - 2011
Purporting to be the work of the late John Pickard Owen (with a memoir by his brother), this 1873 satire set out to defend Christianity, but was written so subtly, that many readers, critics, and religious alike failed to recognize it as satire at all. While the first edition was written under a pseudonym, Butler revealed his authorship in the second edition, claiming he adopted a pseudonym for Fair Haven so as not to be suspected of satire.
