The first book I would recommend anyone in this forum group reading is Kenneth Miller's "Finding Darwin's God".

The wording of its English was antiquated at the time this

a very poor translation.

I don't find it all that weak, except I have a problem with its
continual use of the past tense where it isn't really warranted
in the original text.

But I HATE one-translation Johnny and all his ilk. I often START
with the KJV because It's what I was raised on. But I also use
the New Jerusalem Bible, the NRSV, the NKJV, the Vulgate, the
Septuagint and several ancient NT codices in the original
languages. When push comes to shove, I don't mind making my own
translation.
