Taking up the shield of Faith: A Christian reads “god is not Great” by Christopher Hitchens

I was reading some reviews of this book and one review went like this, “it is likely that Christians will not read this book.” I guess that would make him wrong. I have finally received the book after a mix up on my debit card number from amazon but it is here and I look forward to read what Christopher Hitchens has written. Be encouraged.

 ImageMen can win battles, and they may also be won by wit. It is also said that the side with the most money will have the advantage. However nothing can be true of certain victory if one knew exactly what the other team was doing. In all strategy games and (lets face it, some) gambling games, if I know what the other person is thinking (like Chess) or what cards the other person had in a game of Texas hold’em there is no doubt of victory. Well reality is no game but a real battlefield. There are the good guys and the bad guys. The victory has already been won but the battle for lost souls remains in the balance. In a culture today where Christians are leaving there shields at home and fighting with their sword only; we are being slaughtered. We have not looked at the issues face to face and it is time that we took up the shield and defend ourselves from the arrows of darkness. I am reading this book to look at the hard questions to defend my faith with the shield of faith and for the lives of those who need to hear that the Christian faith is not a leap into irrationality but a step into reality. Please remember me in prayer as I read this book and remember if God is for us who can be against us!
