This is by no means an exhaustive list of books authored by popular Atheists or ex-Christians, as there are literally thousands of such books. These are simply the books that I have read and liked and that I am comfortable recommending. The list of books that I haven’t read that I want to get to is long. This list of recommended books will expand as I get that reading done. 🙂
These books are written from a Progressive Christian perspective. While I am an ex-Christian atheist and this movement within Christianity is not for me personally, it’s one I can get behind and enthusiastically support. It’s a much healthier form of Christian belief than fundamentalism is.
These books by Dr. Bart Ehrman focus on the subject of Jesus.
