David Horowitz Weighs-In on “The Faith of Christopher Hitchens” Controversy

Following Saturday’s New York Times article on my book, The Faith of Christopher Hitchens: the Restless Soul of the World’s Most Notorious Atheist, a strong defense of the book has been offered from an unlikely source: eminent author and thinker David Horowitz.

Horowitz, a self-described “agnostic and former radical,” knew Christopher Hitchens for almost fifty years. In a brilliant 2010 article titled “The Two Christophers,” he examines Christopher Hitchens’s contradictory nature and desire to “have his cake and eat it, too.” In this review of my book, Horowitz, like Douglas Wilson in his review, argues that the Christopher I knew was not unlike the one that he knew. You can read Horowitz’s review here. Enjoy.
