Christopher Hitchens is Dead

Christopher Hitchens, the acerbic atheist and prolific author, is dead. I reviewed his book, god is not Great, a few years ago. He was a keen wit, a good writer, and a terrible philosopher of religion.

In your opinion, of all the philosophers of religion who dispute the existence of the central character, which one is the best and worth reading?

An absolutely incredible wordsmith, but painfully weak as a philosopher. His debates and writings generally consisted of disjointed statements from a variety of different perspective, making a cogent response difficult.

I wish that he could have been influenced for truth.
