The Rage Against God

Peter Hitchens has published an insightful book, drawing on his own experience as former atheist and brother of a famous New Atheist. The Rage Against God is interesting both 1) for its discussion of atheism and atheism's links to intolerance, violence, and totalitarianism and also 2) for its portrait of the disintegrating world of postwar England in which he and I and also Roger Scruton grew up. (See Scruton's Gentle Regrets and England: An Elegy.)

Amazon has a brief clip in which Hitchens talks about the book at:
