Description"God Is Not Great" is the ultimate case against religion. In a series of acute readings of the major religious texts, Christopher Hitchens demonstrates the ways in which religion is man-made, dangerously sexually repressive and distorts the very origins of the cosmos. Above all, Hitchens argues that the concept of an omniscient God has profoundly damaged humanity, and proposes that the world might be a great deal better off without 'him'.

What we have waited for
Christopher Hitchens 'God is not great' IS a great book!Intelligently set out, and covering the major, (and some minor) religions. I found it riveting, and my own thoughts on this hugely divisive subject put into a cogent argument for all free thinkers.My own experience as a four year old, dragged to my father's church, and screaming with terror at seeing the large life-like Jesus on a cross, with the mandatory bleeding head and wounds, I now view as child abuse. Yes, Hitchens covers ALL the blood sacrifices required by the various religions, and the history of non-believers, going back further than Socrates is informative. Indeed he also puts forward the view that throughout the ages, many people pretended to go along with the major religions in order to survive!
I recommend this book to all who wish to avail themselves of the argument that such a fine mind as Hitchens has written here. No doubt the many religious of all differing faiths, may be too fearful to do so.
Vale Christopher, you are sadly missed! by Janice Margaret Warne
