  1. Thanks for this informative list. I will surely be reading some of them soon.
    I may as well share a title which still has a lasting influence on me : God, Guilt, and Death: An Existential Phenomenology of Religion (Studies in Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy) by Merold Westphal.

  2. The books “Liberated from Religion” and “Wasting Time on God”, by Paulo Bitencourt, should be on this list.
