I found the book fascinating and engaging. However, Mr. Hitchens has not convinced me to abandon my faith in God. I don't expect that I'd convince him to give up his atheism, either. While I was listening to the book, nevertheless, I found something we agree on. Mr. Hitchens quoted Philippians 4:8 (He recited it at a funeral)
Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
I'd love to have a conversation with Mr. Hitchens -- not for either of us to convince one another in any way about faith or atheism, but instead to look for whatever is true, honorable, just, pure, pleasing and commendable. I think we have and would continue to find common ground with which to be friends.
