The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief
1.  The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief by Francis S. Collins
The list author says:
  "Dr. Francis Collins challenges both creationist Christians and atheist evolutionists in the book you will both love, hate and can't put down. Collins headed the Human Genome Project and is the head of NIH. Disagree with him if you wish but he can't be ignored."

The Hand of God: A Journey from Death to Life by the Abortion Doctor Who Changed His Mind
2.  The Hand of God: A Journey from Death to Life by the Abortion Doctor Who Changed His Mind by Bernard N. Nathanson
The list author says:
  "Was it a momentous spiritual event that changed Nathanson's mind on abortion? Or was it based on the arguments of the pro-life side? In fact it was ultrasound. For anyone with a view on abortion, this book can not be ignored. Nathanson ushered in abortion in America and it's worth knowing why he no longer believes the way he did."

3.  Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle by Chris Hedges
The list author says:
  "I do not care much for Chris Hedges views but this book is a disturbing look at the slow poisons of our society: reality TV, celebrity worship, adult entertainment, corporatism and the academy. Hedges articulates what I always suspected. We all wear the emperor's new clothes."
