Is Christianty good for the world?

"(Christianity) is a wicked cult, and it's high time we left it behind."
CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS.

"There are two tenets of atheism. One, there is no God. Two, I hate him."
PASTOR DOUGLAS WILSON

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 Christianity Good For The World?". Lives and worldviews collide as Hitchens and Wilson wittily and passionately argue this timeless question, proving to be perfectly matched intellectual, philosophical, and cinematic rivals. COLLISION is directed by prolific independent filmmaker Darren Doane (Van Morrison: To Be Born Again, The Battle For L.A., Godmoney).

Meet the Authors

Christopher Hitchens

Christopher Eric Hitchens (born April 13, 1949) is an English-American author, journalist, literary critic, and apologist for atheism. He has been a columnist at Vanity Fair, The Atlantic, World Affairs, The Nation, Slate, Free Inquiry, and a variety of other media outlets. He currently lives in Washington, D.C.

Hitchens is a political observer, polemicist and self styled political radicalist whose books - the latest being God Is Not Great - have made him a staple of talk shows and lecture circuits. In 2009 Hitchens was listed by Forbes magazine as one of the "25 most influential liberals in U.S. media." The same article noted, though, that he would "likely be aghast to find himself on this list".

Collision
4 stars By Paul Aylett, Apr 06 2010
Collision is a matter-of-fact debate on the subject, "Is Christianity good for the world", pitting the two protagonists in a raw, sometimes brash, verbal "gun-slinging" debate that is as humorous as it is focused on the topic.

Darren Doane directs and films Collision utilising his experience as an "indie" film maker. A mosaic of clips shot during the tours that Hitchens and Wilson undertook, Doane captures them during periods of formal debate in different social settings gatherings - including in front of live audiences, at Universities, Cafe's and at the local establishment.

Collision is not a crusade, rather the film serves as an honest replaying of two men from two very different positions debating a time-old subject. As you view the film you will find yourself engaging with the debate, positing your own views and arguments, and sharing a laugh with the debaters. I recommend this product to anyone who enjoys engaging in thought provoking discussions.
