The Rage Against God (subtitle in US editions: How Atheism Led Me to Faith) is the fifth book by the traditionalist conservative writer Peter Hitchens, originally published in 2010. Autobiographical and polemical, the book describes Hitchens's journey from the militant atheism of the far political left and bohemianism to Christianity, detailing the influences on him that led to his conversion. The book is also partly intended as a response to God is not Great, a book written by his brother Christopher in 2007. Peter Hitchens, with particular reference to events which occurred in the Soviet Union, argues that his brother's verdict on religion is misguided, and that faith in God is both a safeguard against the collapse of civilization into moral chaos and the best antidote to what he sees as the dangerous idea of earthly perfection through utopianism.
