Product Description

Two brothers. Two beliefs. Two revolted. One returned.

Here, for the first time, Peter Hitchens, brother of prominent atheist Christopher Hitchens, chronicles his personal journey through disbelief into a committed Christian faith. With unflinching 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. 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."

Publisher's Description

What if notorious atheist Christopher Hitchens, bestselling author of God Is Not Great, had a Christian brother? He does. Peter Hitchens details a very personal story of how he left the faith but dramatically returned. And like many of the Old Testament saints whose personal lives were intertwined with the life of their nation, so Peter’s story is also the story of modern England and its sad spiritual decline. Peter brings his work as an international journalist to bear as he documents firsthand accounts of atheistic societies, specifically in Communist Russia, where he lived in Moscow during the collapse of the Soviet Union. He shows that the world’s bloodiest century, the 20th, entailed nothing short of atheism’s own version of the Crusades and the Inquisition. The path to a secular utopia, pursued by numerous modern tyrants, is truly paved with more violence than has been witnessed in any era in history. Hitchens provides hope for all believers whose friends or family members have left Christianity or who are enchanted by the arguments of the anti-religious intellects of our age.

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.

    This book is eye opening. Its not initially what I thought it was about. I kind of thought it would be a simple story about one mans return to faith but its much much more than that. Peter gives us insight into how a Socialist society actually works. Peter fully exposes the true intentions of Socialism. He also gives a view of life inside a completely secular society. I could write much more but the book is educational and well worth reading.

    My mom told me when I was a girl that even atheists are religious people who have their own god. This book makes my mom's statement all the more relevant on pg 214 where Hitchens argues "This utopianism relies for human goodness on doctrines of human rights derived from human desires..." As we are seeing now more than ever with people being forced to worship the earth because it's"good", live communally because it's"good" and defer to global powers because it serves the "greater good." And these desires for good without God render us worse off every time which Hitchens demonstrates especially in chapt. 11. He says "utopia can only ever be approached in a sea if blood." This is why apostasy is at such an all time high because Christians who don't know their Bible go along with the cult of "good" based in some version of utopia that will never happen until Jesus return. Socialism, humanism, scientism is what atheists have brought us...never peace, never love but murder & an unending attempt at taking away God.

    This book provides a clear idea at what a society looks like as it becomes increasingly secular (Britain), how one can easily see the logic in atheism (author's experience), and how the intellectualism of atheism becomes a god unto itself.

    Peter Hitchens is an eloquent, thoughtful writer who has seen firsthand the loss of Christian ethics in our Western culture. His portrayal of the former Soviet Union is chilling. His account of the rise to power of Marxism in the Russia, and its effect on Christian families, should be read by all Christian parents who are concerned about their children being led away from their parents' morals and ethics. There are many personal details about his early life, and even some illustrations included that played pivotal roles in bringing him to faith - the true, take-up-your-cross-and-follow-me faith.

    Peter Hitchens presents himself humbly and eloquently, with great wisdom as an example of someone whose life has ridden a rollercoaster of faith. One learns about his heart for his atheist brother and provides his view of the counterpoint between the two divergent views of Christianity and God. I found it very helpful to enter the stories of these two people a little, especially in the second half of the book where his arguments and examples are clearly articulated. He draws on his experiences living in atheistic countries to persuasively argue that the cultural impact of Christianity on a country is a gracious gift of civility and freedom, now being widely rejected in his own country, England as well as America. In his view, the reason for this is that the voice of the church has so involved itself with a particular aspect of the surrounding culture, that when culture changed, Christianity lost a profound battle for credibility.
