Jack the Counselor

May 3rd, 2015

by Dr. Bruce L. Edwards (c) 2015. Ask any ten avid readers of C. S.

Christopher Hitchens on C. S. Lewis

July 1st, 2007

For those of you who have not heard of or seen it, British gadfly-commentator (maybe the only left of center curmudgeon who supports the Iraqi war), Christopher Hitchens (Vanity Fair, Slate, and other wide-syndication publications), has written a book entitled, God is Not Great.
