I need 1 book in favor of and 1 book against Christianity
Its for school (dont get mad about seperation of church and state, this is something the teacher asked me if I wanted to do and I said okay). I just need 1 of each. Try not to make them really long because she wants to read them both. Thanks in advance.

Fight the system,

~~~but don't mute the opposition!~~~

I'd recommend:

1 book against:

The Dark Side of Christian History

OR/ The Case Against Christianity


1 book in favor:

The Gospel of Inclusion: Reaching Beyond Religious Fundamentalism to the True Love of God and Self [Paperback]

If brevity is absolutely necessary then try: Sam Harris' A Letter to a Christian Nation

On the opposite side look here:

For: C.S. Lewis "The Problem of Pain" (shrug) (short, easy read)

Against: Bertrand Russell "Why I Am Not a Christian"

"Ain't got no last words to say, yellow streak right up my spine. The gun in my mouth was real and the taste blew my mind."

RE: I need 1 book in favor of and 1 book against Christianity
Buddy Christ makes two excellent suggestions.

Also good from the "for" camp, Bishop Spong's book, Why Christianity Must Change or Die.
Or you could go the blathering route and try The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren (bleech!)

So many good books from the anti-camp.
Demon Haunted World - Carl Sagan
God is Not Great - Hitchens
The God Delusion - Dawkins
There are also several good books about mark Twain and his religious ideas.
There's Some Mistakes of Moses by Robert Ingersoll (good luck finding that one.)
The Gospel Forgeries by Joseph Wheless

I was going to suggest Hitchen's "God is Not Great" as well until I saw the:

Quote:Try not to make them really long

...and if I recall, that book resembles a phone book (in size and color).

Still a good read.

So the phone book is pro-Christian? and my ex-wife's love letters were anti-Christian?
