Father Barron on a book I gotta read!

Father Robert Barron, the maestro of WordOnFire.org, gives us a book report on Peter Hitchens' The Rage Against God. (Hitchens, if you don't know, is the brother of the rabidly atheist journalist Christopher Hitchens. He's also a journalist and editorialist, and a high-church Anglican.)
 If anyone wants to buy themselves—or me (hint hint)—a copy, they can find it here at Amazon.com.
And, by the way, in the spirit of charity I want to offer prayers to both brothers on the revelation that "the Hitch" is dying of cancer. For Christopher, that he may finally embrace the truth he has denied so long, and for Peter that he may find comfort in his sorrow. I suggest the Divine Mercy Chaplet: For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
