Publisher's Description

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 “the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.”

Author Bio

Peter Hitchens is a British journalist, author, and broadcaster. He currently writes for the Mail on Sunday, where he is a columnist and occasional foreign correspondent, reporting most recently from Iran, North Korea, Burma, The Congo, and China. A former revolutionary, he attributes his return to faith largely to his experience of socialism in practice, which he witnessed during his many years reporting in Eastern Europe and his nearly three years as a resident correspondent in Moscow during the collapse of the Soviet Union. He lived and worked in the United States from 1993 to 1995. Hitchens lives in Oxford with his wife, Eve. They have three children.

    "Why do the nations rage" asks the Psalmist (2:1). Against whom are they so filled with fury? Mankind displays a fundamental hatred towards the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The nations rage because they seek to usurp him; drag him through the streets as though conquered; and leave him to a gruesome death.

    Sometimes the militant become the adherent. Christopher Hitchens is well known as a militant atheist. He believes that there is no God. But, what makes him militant is his resolve to demonstrate the corruption of religion and the hope of atheism. You may have already known that. But, you may not be aware the Christopher has a brother, Peter. Peter is a Christian.

    Peter Hitchens has written a book describing his proverbial prodigality - his rejection of Christianity and subsequent return. Hitchens is a professional journalist. He's a man who knows how to write well. His book The Rage against God is well written and easy to read. It may not be the kind of book you expect. He describes his journey but not in the typical, bear-all, American manner you might expect. He is thoroughly British and maintains his scruples. It was not the book I expected. The book I found was better than that.

    The Rage against God is an exploration of history and ideas. It is a profound reminder of the power of ideas to shape history by shaping lives. He was a product of the pessimistic, post-WWII British childhood. It is the grace of God which delivers us from the age in which we find ourselves. It was God's grace which delivered Peter Hitchens from the desperate, hopeless world in which he lived and moved for so long. Through exploration of history (some personal, some not) and ideas he shows that he came to see Atheism as a hatred toward God - specifically Christianity.

    Rage robs a man of his distinctive trait. A man so filled with fury loses his ability to think or reason. Rage-filled men are the werewolves of our day. So filled with bloodthirsty urges they lose a right view of themselves. Our therapeutic age is quick to diagnose "rage-a-holics" and even quicker to prescribe antidotes. Could it be that the rage destroying so many homes and lives is really just the manifestation of a deeper, more concealed, socially acceptable rage? The Rage against God.
