Hitchens & Hitchens


“I set fire to my Bible on the playing fields of my Cambridge boarding school one bright, windy spring afternoon in 196. I was 15 years old. The book did not, as I had hoped, blaze fiercely and swiftly.” 

So begins Peter Hitchen’s article, “How I found peace with God and my atheist brother,” from which I quoted Sunday morning. I am relatively unfamiliar with Peter Hitchens’ views in general, but this article in particular I encourage you to read as a thought-provoking tale of wrestling with the “defense of the faith” in a relational context.
