‘The Rage Against God – How Atheism Led Me to Faith’ – Peter Hitchens

image

In The Rage Against GOD Peter Hitchens says he longs for an argument from atheists that “recognises the possible attractions to the intelligent mind of the religious explanation rather than denouncing all religious belief as stupid.” (p.151)

Of course many non-believers are not in that camp and he is no doubt thinking of his brother whose disdain for all religion remains intractable.

  1. I have always been fascinated by the two completely different spiritual viewpoints of the Hitchens brothers. I guess Christopher is experiencing the truth now that he is on the other side.

  2. I believe faith has ultimately been a matter of the heart and not the mind, perhaps that’s the issue here.

    As it is written:
    “But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7)
