This review is from: Reason, Faith, and Revolution: Reflections on the God Debate (Terry Lectures) (The Terry Lectures) (Paperback)
Eagleton seems to be annoyed by the fact that Hitchens was a gifted orator and Dawkins claims to find happiness in science and facts. Much energy is spent giving negative personal statements on "Ditchins", a term obviously ment for ridicule. Eagleton is also trying to construct a revolutionary Christianity by removing most of the negative aspects of religion, the ones that "Ditchins" focuses on, using only the "cozy" parts of the Bible, those that we unbelievers call human values. If Eagleton had lived in the old Greece, he would probably also rejected Socrates on basis of his eloquence.
