Helen H. Gardener was part of the freethought movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Men, Women, and Gods is a series of freethought lectures particularly addressing the position of women in the church. She does not hold back, and her wit makes me chuckle at times.

One complicating factor if this work were to be adopted is that it has copious references to appendices and other footnotes throughout the text, including asterisks in the middle of sentences linking to lengthy footnotes. I imagine that that situation has been dealt with before for other works though.
