Reader recommendation: God Is Not Great Email More Monitor readers share their favorite book picks. By Bob Meshanko, San Antonio, Tex. June 7, 2011 I'm reading God Is Not Great by Christopher Hitchens. As a life-long Christian, I love the way Hitchen's mind works – just as I love the concept of questioning everything. Hitchens is smarter than most of us – just as he is a gift to us. Recommended: Could you pass a US citizenship test?
