Currently reading Chris Hitchens’ “God is not great”, and really enjoying it, although his vocabulary is rather extensive, resulting in regular visits to websters online.
He revisits many of the key arguments against religion which have already been made by Dawkins et al, but adds significant historical context. While I’m generally not a fan of historical filler, it does help clarify some issues for me.
He is also surprisingly witty, even cheeky, and I have found myself laughing out loud – something one would never expect from his work.
In summary, I have found myself itching to get to back to the book, rather than having to ‘slog’ through it as I imagined. Go read it.
