Collision: Christopher Hitchens vs. Douglas Wilson

We watched this film recently at my church and it fostered some great discussion.

The documentary COLLISION pits leading atheist, political journalist and author Christopher Hitchens (God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything) against fellow author and evangelical theologian Pastor Douglas Wilson on a debate tour arguing the topic “Is Religion Good For The World?”. Lives and worldviews collide as Hitchens and Wilson wittily and passionately argue the timeless question, proving to be perfectly matched intellectual, philosophical, and cinematic rivals.
I thought the film makers did a great job of representing both sides. If you are looking for a definitive "winner" to the debate, I think you will be disappointed. However, if you want to understand the other side of the argument a bit better and perhaps strengthen your own beliefs, I think it's worth the time to watch and ponder.

Anyway, I thought this might be something that you guys would enjoy.

I enjoyed this movie, and I love me some Hitchens. My favorite part is the little interactions between Hitchens and Wilson. It's as if their personalities make them border-line friends, but their ideologies act as a fence. It's a nice, overlooked flick.
Stand upright, speak thy thoughts, declare The truth thou hast, that all may share; Be bold, proclaim it everywhere: They only live who dare. - Voltaire
