A very personal book,
This review is from: The Rage Against God: Why Faith is the Foundation of Civilisation (Hardcover)
A very personal work this from Mr Hitchens. It is rooted in his own journey from childhood belief, through adolescent skepticism, and then to adult faith. Hitchens is now a Prayer Book and Authorised Version Anglican!
This book is also rooted in his disagreement with his atheist brother, Christopher.
In this book, Hitchens tackles the arguments usually put forward by atheists against (essentially) Christianity. He does a good job.
However, for me, his most interesting observation is why totalitarian/atheist states are so aggressive towards Christianity. The answer being is that Christians have a higher allegiance than simply to the state.
As militant atheism assumes greater political influence in the UK: the slide towards totalitarianism becomes much greater.
A timely book on the British scene.
