A more provocative argument you may not find. Hitchens pours it on fast and heavy in building a case for the reexamining of world religious faiths and the harm caused. This is an extremely eloquent treatise well thought out and apparently researched. Anyone of faith will most likely find most of the book unappealing and contentious in the least and an outright assault to their personal beliefs in the large. Having said that I still highly recommend this book for amongst main reasons, but mainly for the depth of the argument that lends itself to “The Emperor with no Clothes” analogy. What do we do with our traditions that, after close examination, no longer give comfort and may warp our future behavior.
