    I need some book ideas. My list is running low. What are your favorite books on your nonbelief?

    Although it's a bit "unorthodox," I greatly enjoyed Why I'm an Atheist Who Believes in God by Frank Schaeffer. I've also heard his book Crazy for God is quite good (although I havent read it), re: his time as an evangelist and early part of the modern Religious Right.

    I also can't get enough of Richard Carrier, any of his books are worth the read.

    Thanks! Was it Frank that was an evangelist or his father, Francis? I thought I knew Frank's bio, but maybe not.

    Both were, Frank followed in his dad's footsteps. Then he converted to Eastern Orthodoxy.

    Not on non-beliefs, but I quite enjoy religious history, as opposed to theology.

    The late, great Bill Hicks was reading in a diner in the Bible belt. Some locals walked up to him and one asked,

    "What'ya reading... for?"
