Description

This unique and challenging Religious Studies resource offers a clear, concise and balanced overview of and related activities on two opposing books on religion by Christopher and Peter Hitchens.

The first, 'God is not Great', is Christopher's bestselling polemic on what he describes as the 'poison' of religion. The second, 'The Rage Against God', is Peter's riposte to his brother's anti-theist text. Our resource, 'Think on these things', presents the brothers' cases and suggests relevant topics for students to debate and discuss.

Described as 'intelligent and thoughtful' by Peter Hitchens, this original resource examines six important arguments and counterarguments from the brothers' books on religion. Each section also comes with suggestions for debate and discussion topics.

Despite having much in common, the Hitchens brothers were poles apart in their views on God and Christianity. Christopher's book, a core text of the New Atheism, argues that religion is the main source of violence and hatred in the world. Initially reluctant to respond with his own book, Peter argues that Christianity is the foundation of civilisation, and that many of Christopher's claims are erroneous.

Now available in a single document, 'Think on these things' provides Religious Studies teachers with a highly apposite and original resource on a difficult and important topic.

The title of the resource comes from a New Testament verse that both brothers know and love well.
