Christopher Hitchens is an acclaimed author and commentator on politics and culture. More recently, though, he has gained tremendous notoriety as one of the vanguard of the New Atheists. In this debate se-ries, he takes on three pre-eminent apologists for theism, in a series of lively, entertaining, and edifying de-bates. This is an issue at the core of any society, and so should be of interest to anyone who cares about par-ticipating in the culture. Discussion to follow.
