The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything - Christopher Hitchens - A Short Summary and Review


A short summary of God is Not Great:

An atheist's collection of religious mishaps.

My favorite Christopher Hitchens quote from the book:

"And it seems possible, moving to the psychological arena, that people can be better off believing in something than in nothing, however untrue that something may be."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Does a failure of humans to worship God correctly mean that God doesn't exist?

Can God use scientific means for His creations?

My review of God Is Not Great:

Oh, so very snarky!

Great examples of what not to do.

Ironically, the book that started me on conversion to Christianity.
