Letter to a Christian Nation, Sam Harris
God is Not Great, Christopher Hitchens
God: The Failed Hypothesis, Victor J. Stenger
The Demon Haunted World, Carl Sagan

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Russell, Sartre and Nietszche come to mind.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

If you're a deconverting Christian, or recently deconverted I really enjoyed: "Biblical Nonsense: A Review of the Bible for Doubting Christians"

RE: What atheist books would you recommend?
Most of my interest is in counter-apologetics.

I really enjoyed " 50 Reasons People Give for Believing in a God" by Guy P. Harrison
It's a softer, less confrontational primer on responding to theists usual replies on religion.

I also recommend Karen Armstrong's, "A History of God". It's always amazing to me how many Christians have NO idea where the Bible came from, or when or how it was written. It's like they think Adam and Eve found it under a bush, or that it just "poofed" into existence in the Middle ages. The evolution of religion is a messy subject.

I've been thinking of reading that book. I've started to grow an interest in Sam Harris. I haven't read his "The End of Faith" yet, I'm going to get to it, but I have started reading his "The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Values" - I like it a lot.
I would suggest Stephen Hawking too. His "The Grand Design." He makes a case of a universe springing into existence without a creator.

"There is a circle here that links us to one another: we each want to be happy; the social feeling of love is one of our greatest sources of happiness; and love entails that we be concerned for the happiness of others. We discover that we can be selfish together."
-Sam Harris
