With a close and erudite reading of the major religious texts, Christopher Hitchens makes the ultimate case against religion.

Christopher Hitchens has been hailed as 'one of the most brilliant journalists of our time' (UK Observer ). Here he makes the ultimate case against organised religion.

In God is Not Great , Hitchen tweezes through the major religious texts with forensic shrewdness. With chapters entitled Religion Kills', and Is Religion Child Abuse?', he fearlessly argues for a secular life based on science and reason, tarring religion as man-made wish-thinking. He documents the ways in which religion is a cause of dangerous sexual repression and a distortion of our origins in the cosmos; in Hitchen's vision, hell is replaced by the Hubble telescope's view of the universe, and Moses and the burning bush give way to the double helix. Principally, 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'.

God Is Not Great
An excellent piece on religious criticism, God is Not Great is probably the most famous work by Christopher Hitchens. Standing alongside Richard Dawkin's The God Delusion and Sam Harris The End of Faith, this book crashes down on religion full force. Completely unforgiving and entirely informative, God is Not Great shines the light on religious horrors and circular reasoning, causing apologists everywhere to scuttle away like cockroaches. If you enjoyed The God Delusion, Hitchens' book approaches religion from a less scientific and more political angle, containing powerful vitriol and unflinching examination and ultimately, shocking and enlightening.
