Last night Jenni and I watched Collision: Christopher Hitchens vs. Douglas Wilson, an 87-minute film in which two witty public intellectuals debate whether Christianity is good for the world.
As we expected, the debate is fascinating, fast-paced, evenhanded, and edifying. The creative camera angles and other non-verbal aspects of the film make it even more provocative.
- The film is based on the book Is Christianity Good for the World? A Debate (Moscow, ID: Canon, 2008).
- The book grew out of a six-part exchange in Christianity Today.
- Justin Taylor shared some thoughts after viewing the film in March.
- John Piper interviewed Doug Wilson for 16 minutes after showing the film at the Desiring God conference last weekend.
Update on 4/12/2016: Doug Wilson reviewed Larry Alex Taunton’s The Faith of Christopher Hitchens: The Restless Soul of the World’s Most Notorious Atheist (Nashville: Nelson, 2016). Superlative review.
