In the tradition of Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not a Christian and Sam Harris's, The End of Faith, Christopher Hitchens makes the ultimate case against religion. With a close and erudite reading of the major religious texts, he documents the ways in which religion is a man-made wish, a cause of dangerous sexual repression, and a distortion of our origins in the cosmos. With eloquent clarity, Hitchens frames the argument for a more secular life based on science and reason, in which the heavens are replaced by the Hubble Telescope's awesome view of the universe, and Moses and the burning bush give way to the beauty and symmetry of the double helix.

A good audiobook
That improves on the original book by being easier to digest.
A triumph for the rational mind!!
Concerning the 'review' by Migsteele - This audio book is classified as non fiction because it deals in the truth. I believe the work of fiction you are looking for is called 'The Bible' which was written and collated by various dubious authors.
Speaking the Truth
Well written and read by Christopher himself. I remember as a child sitting in Religious education class thinking what a pile of rubbish. They should replace the bible and teach this book.
