Ahoy Read Atheist members,

I have never read any of the "new atheists" books. The only books related to religion I have read have been "primary texts" like the Poetic Edda, Homer's Odyssey & Iliad, and major parts of the Old Testament and parts of the New Testament. I've also read religion-related books like Nietzsche's Antichrist, LaVey's The Satanic Bible and Hume's Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding. However, I feel that I am left out concerning the discussion of the "new atheists" books, and as an ever more active member of the secular community, I feel like I should. I am not looking for books that explain the basics of atheism, or books that neutralize myths concerning atheism. I am well beyond Atheism, Humanism and Secularism 101. So which books would you recommend me?

Thank you!

Daniel Dennet's books tend to be more complex compared to the other members of the "Big 4". Try Breaking the Spell or Freedom Evolves.

I also like Ehrman for his scriptural critique, but I don't think he's really part of the "new atheist" movement.
I recommend the Holy Bible. Great story!
Thank you Pam for your recommendations

Rev. Pops you may want to read my post before you reply.
Don't just read parts of the New Testament, read it all. Get the whole feel of it. Front to back.
I have it on my book shelve, I read parts every now and then. The Old Testament was very depressing - and insanely trivial after the five Mosaic books.
