Peter Hitchens on Faith and His Sibling

Peter Hitchens, author of The Rage Against God, writes about his journey to faith and the mended relationship with his brother Christopher. An excerpt:

Word spread around my trade that I was somehow mixed up in church matters. It was embarrassing. I remember a distinguished foreign correspondent, with a look of mingled pity and horror on his face, asking: 'How can you do that?' I talked to few people about it, and was diffident about mentioning it in anything I wrote. I think it true to say that for many years I was more or less ashamed of confessing to any religious faith at all, except when I felt safe to do so.
