Christopher Hitchins – and faith

Dec 27, 2011

Last week Christopher Hitchins died. You may know him as ‘the athiest’, or the author of books such as “God is not Great“.

For the past three years I have had the opportunity to be a part of a priests’ retreat led by Monsignor Lorenzo Albacete

The series below lets us listen in on Hitchins and Albacete as they chat about faith. Many might think that the champion of “New Athiesm” and a remarkably effective communicator of the “New Evangelisation” would have little to converse about.

But here their common ground of respectful and energetic search for life’s meaning and purpose provides a forum for inspiring dialogue.
