Christopher Hitchens has been hailed as one of the most brilliant journalists of our time' (London Observer). Here he makes the ultimate case against organised religion. With a detailed 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. Hitchens frames the argument for a more secular life based on science and reason, in which hell is 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. With chapters entitled Religion Kills, The New' Testament Exceeds the Evil of the Old' One, The Koran is Borrowed from Both Jewish and Christian Myths, and Is Religion Child Abuse? Hitchens argues for a more secular life based on science and reason rather than the myths of a man-made wish. Christopher Hitchens is the author of Letters to a Young Contrarian, and the bestseller NoOne Left to Lie To: The Values of the Worst Family. A regular contributor to Vanity Fair, The Atlantic Monthly
