Novak's review of God is Not Great (http://tinyurl.com/34yhmd) is
worth reading. Here's the conclusion to entice you to go read it:

> Hitchens, in sum, sets for himself moral limits that in his view
> come from reason. And the standards Hitchens sets are normally
> quite high. Except when, contrary to the American founding, he is
> venting his bile against God, who, he says, does not exist. Still,
> even for believers Hitchens is useful. One can take the rake of his
> arguments to pull out dead grass in one’s own sloppy thinking about
> God.
