At a young age, Peter Hitchens, brother of prominent atheist Christopher Hitchens, burned his Bible and repudiated Christianity, later becoming a Trotskyist. While serving as a journalist in Moscow, Hitchens witnessed the spiritual bankruptcy of an atheistic state which tried to destroy Christianity. Troubled and disillusioned, Hitchens eventually returned to Christianity. The Rage Against God—Hitchens' successful attempt to debate religion with his brother—gives a somber warning to Christians in the West, especially his native Britain, to guard and nourish their spiritual heritage.
