So What Does an Atheist Do With the Bible? — Ideology Meets Etiquette

Author Christopher Hitchens, striving for the uncontested title as the World’s Most Strident Atheist, suggests that our culture is experiencing “something like a change in the zeitgeist” — that that change means a new openness to atheism. His book, God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything, is a direct assault upon belief in God. The assault extends to the Bible. As religion writer Rachel Zoll explains, Hitchens and his fellow atheists dismiss the Bible as “fairy tales posing as divine scripture.” Many do not mince words. That doesn’t go over well with Carlin Romano, a professor and literary critic who teaches at the University of Pennsylvania. On today’s program, Dr. Mohler explains why.
