Rare Book While this book is on a subject that I find interesting it is unfortunate that it fails to live up to the expectations I had of it Christopher Hitchens has in general written several thought provoking articles and books on the existence or non existence of God and as such I was surprised to read this and find it filled with the sort of poorly thought through arguments that plague the theological discussions of 13 year old children Throughout reading the book I had to occasionally put it down in surprise that both authors had put forward points that could so easily be torn to shreds by anybody with a rudimentary knowledge of the subject matter On the plus side my annoyance was short lived as this book can be read in around an hour or less due to it's extremely short length It is really of a pamphlet than a book and certainly not worth the ridiculous asking price of £451 The price is especially criminal when you consider that many books which are far it's superior in both length and uality are of a similar priceOver all I would definitely not recommend buying this book

Is Christianity Good for the World Rare Book 'Our current 'morals' are therefore just a way station on the road No sense getting really attached to them right? When I am travelling I don't get attached to motel rooms I don't weep when I have to part from them So in the future after every ferocious moral denunciation you choose to offer your reading public you really need to add something like 'But this is just a provisional judgment Our perspective may evolve to an entirely different one some years hence'or 'Provisional opinions only Morality changes over time''POOMCOT for short' ' Douglas WilsonThis is just one of many clever uips that Christian Apologist Wilson provides in his debate with the famous Atheist writerspeaker Christopher Hitchens in Is Christianity Good for the World? A Debate Originally published in the Christianity Today magazine this written debate has these two electrifying personalities engaging in the issues concerning the moral claims of Christianity whether they hold up to the scrutiny of proponents of the New Atheism and whether Atheists can provide a non supernatural explanation for morality and human dignityIn this book Hitchens lays out the most popular Atheist arguments against Christian faith and piety arguing that Christian ethical principles are 'as well as being incredible and mythical immoral' p 22 that such laudable teachings as the Golden Rule and loving one's neighbour exist prior to and apart from the revelation of the Bible and that Christianity has resulted in its share of atrocities that neutralize its moral claims Wilson responds by pointing out that Christianity explains how these ethical teachings could be known by non Christians by pointing to the biblical teaching that even the Gentiles have the law written on their hearts Rom 214 as well as pointing out that from a Naturalistic Evolutionary perspective not only does Hitchens and other Atheists have no grounds for making expressions of moral outrage but that our moral concepts are subject to evolutionary processes which means that our morality could evolve to the point that what is considered moral today would be immoral tomorrow and vice versaI highly recommend this to readers because it shows what the common Atheist arguments against Christianity as well as to show how these arguments can be defused and shown to be absurd and incoherent from the Atheists' own worldview
