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.” Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chiara | 2/14/2014

    " This is a very interesting book by a former atheist who returned to the Church after years of unbelief. The author (Peter Hitchens) also happens to be the brother of the renowned New Atheist Christopher Hitchens, and this book is not only a detailing of Peter's return to faith but a rebuttal to his brother's book 'God is Not Great.' An interesting, thought-provoking read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barry Parham | 2/10/2014

    " More of a personal history than a point-by-point attack, I recommend this insight-filled book by Mr. Hitchens, beautifully written by someone self-described as "a former atheist with some skill at words." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roger | 1/25/2014

    " deep and good. Fascinating to read and understand the other side. Would highly recommend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy Rabe | 1/23/2014

    " So many lessons for Americans in this book about where we seem to be headed and where Godlessness leads. A great book and an easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Douglas Wilson | 1/16/2014

    " This was a very fine book. Peter hit it out of the park, or whatever it is you do in cricket. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Serge Boucher | 1/15/2014

    " Last few chapters are very interesting, especially if you've read his brother. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 1/14/2014

    " This book didn't meet my expectations exactly, but was still an interesting read. It certainly provides a counter argument to "god is not great". In hindsight, I wish I read both books back to back. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 1/11/2014

    " This was a fascinating book from the Christian brother of famous atheist Christopher Hitchens. It is personal and autobiographical and explores why he and Christopher took different paths. It also is an interesting work of apologetics and provides a response to New Atheism by recounting the history of the atheistic movements of the 20th century (Peter is a journalist). The only fault I would cite is his tendency at times to do more ranting than actual arguing (this is after all the brother of Christopher Hitchens). Overall, I highly recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah | 1/8/2014

    " This book is as much an apologetic for Christian faith as it is an intriguing look at the cultural and spiritual deterioration of post-war England and the societal collapse of the conscientiously godless Soviet regime. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurele | 12/30/2013

    " Excellent articulation of the journey of a life and an age. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dean Henderson | 12/27/2013

    " Interesting. Not totally satisfying, I don't totally follow how his atheism lead him back to faith. Still, totally worth your time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephen Cruver | 12/21/2013

    " Great book! I thoroughy enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hessam | 12/5/2013

    " Full of fascinating experiments and insights into how the brain works and what that means for faith issues. Well structured and well-written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter | 9/6/2013

    " If there is no God and if Christianity is no more than fairies at the bottom of the garden then why do some people get so angry about it? he stands in complete contrast to his brother Christopher and although he dissagrees with him he never puts him down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike Brand | 2/20/2013

    " I liked what the author had to say, especially in the last half of the book. The earlier part didn't seem to get to the point very well, and I'm not sure I fully grasp how the full story of how atheism let him to faith. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ryan Williams | 12/1/2012

    " When a polemic is written without skill, intelligence or flair, the result might approximate something like this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brett | 8/21/2012

    " Hitchens does a splendid job emphasizing the role of aesthetics in the Christian's apologetic efforts. If the church returns to seeking truth, beauty and goodness in every area of life we would see our pews begin to fill. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Doug Payne | 3/7/2012

    " An interesting story made all the more interesting by the author's brother. Peter Hitchens writes well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brett | 4/23/2011

    " Hitchens does a splendid job emphasizing the role of aesthetics in the Christian's apologetic efforts. If the church returns to seeking truth, beauty and goodness in every area of life we would see our pews begin to fill. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chrissy | 4/19/2011

    " So far, SO BORING! It's a lot about the history of the Church of England and war, but I am intrigued enough by the subject matter to finish it. The brother of the world's most outspoken atheist is a Christian? WHY?! I need to know. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 12/22/2010

    " good book. Not the most illuminating, but interesting take on the new atheists from Christopher's brother. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andy | 11/5/2010

    " I enjoyed it, though not for the reasons I imagined I would. "
