I would like to take this opportunity to post a list of reference books that will be useful in understanding the underlying current of this blog. If you are having difficulty with the central topic it would be helpful to become familiar with these books. If you are just looking for good reading related to the future of belief in God, I highly recommend beginning with these books.
In the interest of proper presentation it should be noted that the MLA style of bibliography requires the book title to be underlined. In my bibliography the titles are bolded, because in a Web page underline almost always refers to a hyperlink. To avoid confusion I decided to make this small change. I will just ask for your understanding in this matter. If you feel strongly about it provide a comment.
