"You would not enjoy Nietzsche, sir. He is fundamentally unsound." -Jeeves in P.G. Wodehouse's Carry On, Jeeves
Friedrich Nietzsche is one of the few atheistic philosophers who is fun to read for theists. Punchy, blasphemous, and virulent with unmatchable zest and passion, he remains an intellectual giant whose thoughts on language, art, and life continue to have an enormous impact on our increasingly relativistic and postmodern culture. Though much of Nietzsche’s work may seem simplistic and petulant, there are few men who made such poignant critiques of human nature and hypocritical religion. Christians would do well to read him, through chuckles.
Reading this classic is like watching a brick being thrown into a washing machine: loud noise, exhilarating destruction, and a surprisingly high entertainment value.
