The Little Book Of Unholy Questionsby Jonathan M. S. Pearce
Jonathan M.S. Pearce's second book (after Free Will?) continues along the same philosophical and theological vein, aiming to provide a cumulative case against the existence of God, and more specifically, God's triple characteristics of omniscience, omnipotence and omnibenevolence. Split into useful categories with an introduction to each category, these are questions that demand to be answered adequately and plausibly in order for the believer to retain a rationally-based faith.
Pearce's easy writing style and explanation of philosophy, theology and science on the popular level make this book as enjoyable to read as it is thought-provoking. Does God change his mind when prayed to, and why has he never produced a miracle since biblical times that couldn't have occurred naturally anyway, like re-growing an amputee's leg? God only knows.
"Pearce demands from God a rational explanation to all of the problems that seem illogical or incoherent. These are ... damningly challenging inconsistencies in the Christian narrative that necessarily antagonize any rational reader. If you are still or used to be Christian, "The Little Book of Unholy Questions" is an overview of the critical questions you need to be asking yourself." - Derek Murphy, Jesus Potter Harry Christ

Great cumulative case, building up a philosophical and evidential case against God's existence.
