I just finished reading The Answer is Never Magic by Robert S. Porter and found it interesting. It is written as a continual conversation between an atheist and a variety of theists that seeks to examine subjects like faith, forgiveness and punishment by a forgiving God.
The conversations probe the Bible's contradictory nature, free will as well as science and evidence. The conversations a question and answer format with the atheist seeking or understanding about religious belief and in return answering a few questions from what might be considered a humanistic point of view. Despite the book's quirky style Porter is informationally on the mark and relevant. For me, the books last paragraph sums up the author's point of view.
"Of course, I'm not content with our limited understanding. And I think reverse engineering the brain's programming language to understand exactly how it does what it does is the scientific challenge of the 21st century. Whoever does that will be Einstein, Watson and Crick and Hawking all rolled into one (though it's pretty likely to be a team not an individual). I don't know what that programing language will look like or what the ultimate explanation of self-awareness and conscious thought will be, but I'm certain of one thing. The answer will not be 'magic.'"
