Listening to God is Not Great by Christopher Hitchens via CD, I could not pause the book long enough to catch up on my other favorite podcasts. I was captivated by the arguments brought to the forefront by Hitchens. His scholarly manner laces his intellectual objections to religion, which are solidified in reason and world history.
I could not explain the book better than the chapter-by-chapter synopsis listed on Wikipedia. If you are interested in the authenticity of religion and its effect upon modern culture, I would highly recommend this book.
As for my personal belief system, I became more grounded in the truth based upon poignant evidence from secular scholars, scientists, apologists, and like-minded freethinkers. Hitchens provided another viewpoint for my budding worldview.
