God is Not Great: The Case Against Religion, by Christopher Hitchens, and The Cambridge Companion to Atheism, by Michael Martin, editor, are reviewed by Hugh Rayment-Pickard. 'If we want to understand atheism, The Cambridge Companion to Atheism — a collection of essays to guide students of philosophy and theology — is a good place to start. As Gavin Hyman’s essay says, Western atheism is a distinctively modern phenomenon, datable to the Enlightenment.' Quite the opposite is Hitchens who 'picks all the most excessive and disgraceful aspects of the world religions and lines them up as evidence that all religion is necessarily rotten to its core... It is also a lazy book that often has recourse to jibes rather than informed argument.'
Mad, Bad or Sad? A Christian Approach to Antisocial and Mental Disorder, by M. Dominic Beer and Nigel D. Pocock, is reviewed by Jenny Francis. This book could 'hardly be more timely '...though not an easy read, it 'is a badly needed study of how Christians might approach the problems of antisocial behaviour and mental illness in contemporary society. It is rooted in the Bible, well researched, carefully structured, timely, and to be commended.'
