Is Christianity Good for the World?
A debate between Christopher Hitchens and Douglas Wilson.

Put two contrarians together and shake well.
Hitchens’s public defenses of his thesis haven’t been much more successful. True, he bested the Reverend Al Sharpton in a televised debate—barely. But whenever he’s come up against serious opponents, it’s been ugly. Near the end of their exchange in Christianity Today, Douglas Wilson borrowed a line from Wyatt Earp in Tombstone to ask Hitchens, “You gonna do something or just stand there and bleed?”
In this publication of a popular online debate from ChristianityToday.com, leading atheist Christopher Hitchens (author of God Is Not Great) and Christian apologist Douglas Wilson (author of Letter from a Christian Citizen) present their answers to this divisive question. The result is an entertaining and significant contribution to the current discussion. http://www.canonpress.org/shop/item.asp?itemid=1397
