I have taken God is not Great back in hand for a re-read. I need to spend some time inside Hitch's head.

I too have been planning on a revist. Have a few other books to get through first though.

Alas I am in your boat. I have so many books I'd like to re-read but at the same time I have books piling up that I'm yet to read .

Dan Barker's 'Godless' How and Evangelical Preacher became one of America's leading Atheists - get inside the head of a Christian Fundy as told by a reformed one!

I too am reading this (about half way through). Chapter 7 - Omni-Aqueous where he deconstructs God's omnipotence, omniscience and omnibenevolence is a corker!

I'm gonna watch his debate with Dinesh D'Souza later tonight.

Given up writing, now reading Waleed Aly 'People like us'. Have determined that my worldview is based on viewing world. Aly has a wordview instead.
