Beschreibung

In god is Not Great Hitchens turned his formidable eloquence and rhetorical energy to the most controversial issue in the world: God and religion. The result is a devastating critique of religious faith

god Is Not Great is the ultimate case against religion. In a series of acute readings of the major religious texts, Christopher Hitchens demonstrates the ways in which religion is man-made, dangerously sexually repressive and distorts the very origins of the cosmos. Above all, 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'.

Christopher Hitchens is a contributing editor to Vanity Fair and Visiting Professor in liberal studies at the New School in New York. He was named one of the world's 'Top 100 Public Intellectuals' by Foreign Policy and Prospect. His books include Love, Poverty & War and Blood, Class & Empire. Thomas Paine's Rights of Man and God Is Not Great were published by Atlantic Books.

"'If Hitchens didn't exist, we wouldn't be able to invent him.' Ian McEwan 'Do yourself a favor and skip the Dawkins and Harris; they're smug, turgid, and boring, with all the human feeling of a tax return. Read Hitchens instead... A tendentious delight, a caustic and even brilliant book... Thank God for Christopher Hitchens.' - Mark Warren, Esquire 'Dazzling... A campaign to put this glittering anti-theist tract on the national curriculum for "religious education" should begin here.' - Johann Hari, Independent 'Hitchens is a grand rhetorician, and his double-barrelled shotgun of a book is high entertainment... As with Voltaire, his scornful laughter is a powerful weapon.' - Christopher Hart, Sunday Times 'The anti-religion case has never been put so well, so comprehensively or so definitively as in this razor-sharp book... Hitchens accumulates a devastating case... Outstanding.' - A.C. Grayling, Independent on Sunday 'Christopher Hitchens is a master craftsman of argument... God is not Great is undoubtedly the most boisterously entertaining contribution to the [atheism] debate.' - Siobhan Murphy, Metro 'God is not Great is easily the most brilliant and fascinating contemplation upon the role of religion in human society in recent times, the Das Kapital of a tolerant, if exasperated, atheism.' - Kevin Myers, Irish Independent"

God (god) is not Great
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Köln am 20.04.2019
Bewertet: Einband: Taschenbuch

The book is very informative, although who already was listening to his speeches, interviews and all that, probably already knows atleast 25% of the content. And it could be written a bit shorter, I give four stars to everyone that is not deep in such topics. For me it would be a 3 star rating.
