The Rage Against God

Full Product Description

In a fascinating account, Peter Hitchens describes his autobiographical and spiritual journey from atheism to faith in God through the power of reasoning. Peter Hitchens lost faith in his teenage years. But eventually finding atheism barren, he came by a process of logic and poetry to his current affiliation to an unmodernized belief in Christianity. Hitchens describes how he returned from the far political left- and from Bohemia. Familiar with British left-wing politics, it was traveling in the Communist bloc that first undermined his leftism and then replaced it, a process which was more or less completed when he became a newspaper's resident correspondent in Moscow in 1990, just before the collapse of the Communist Party. He became convinced of certain propositions. That modern western social democratic politics is a form of false religion in which people try to substitute a social conscience for an individual one. That utopianism is actively dangerous. That liberty and law are attainable human objectives which are also the good by-products of Christian faith.Faith is the best antidote to utopianism, dismissing the dangerous idea of earthly perfection, discouraging men and women from acting as if they were God, encouraging men and women to act in the belief that there is a God and an ordered, purposeful universe, governed by an unalterable law.

The Rage Against God by Peter Hitchens was published by Continuum in March 2010. The ISBN for The Rage Against God is 9781441105721.
