Here, for the first time, in his new book The Rage Against God, Peter Hitchens, brother of prominent atheist Christopher Hitchens, chronicles his personal journey through disbelief into a committed Christian faith.
With unflinching openness and intellectual honesty, Hitchens describes the personal loss and philosophical curiosity that led him to burn his Bible at prep school and embrace atheism in its place. From there, he traces his experience as a journalist in Soviet Moscow and the critical observations that left him with more questions than answers - and more despair than hope for how to live a meaningful life.
With first-hand insight into the blurring of the line between politics and the church, Hitchens reveals the reasons why an honest assessment of atheism cannot sustain disbelief in God. In the process, he provides hope for all believers who, in the words of T. S. Eliot, may discover, "[T]he end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time."

Although the recording leaves a lot to be desired it is nice to listen to a pin sharp intellect pierce some holes in what have always seemed to me the simplest and most dogmatic of the 'new wave aethist' argument's. This book is a welcome break if you want a different point of view to what the cult of atheism declaring, although it is not brave enough to tackle anything particularly new or hard.
Made something that could be made very complex, very clear and easy to understand, credit to both the writing and he performance
This is a very helpful book in understanding the ideological impulses of the left. If you are wondering why the left has such huge blind spots, it's for you.
