Christopher Hitchens Has a Christian Brother, Peter Hitchens
I recently taught a class on Nietzsche and Christianity. I showed a film called Collision on the final day of class. The film follows three public debates between Reformed Pastor Douglas Wilson and prominent writer/atheist Christopher Hitchens. I had a student in my class who grew up with J.R.R. Tolkien, and many of the other Inklings. He also knew Peter Hitchens, the brother of Christopher Hitchens, and former atheist turned Christian. I was poking around Doug Wilson’s blog recently and came across this video.
Apparently, Peter has written a book analyzing the New Atheists entitled, The Rage Against God. It looks interesting. Daily Mail has an excellent read chronicling Peter and Christopher’s relationship.
