Best and worst books for and against the existence of God?

I personally don't believe in any God, but I've been finding myself on a bit of a spiritual and philosophical "journey'; for lack of a better word.

I don't like to be one-sided, so my question is: what are the best books arguing for and against he existence of God?

Conversely, what are the worst books arguing for and against the existence of God?

Also, are there any good books on Deism? As far as religious philosophy goes, Deism interests me.

    The best book for the existence of God is the Bible.

    There is no book that successfully argues against the existence of God, since all such books are written by those who suppress the truth and are fools.

  • Here are two that belong together:

    "The God Delusion" by Richard Dawkins

    "The Dawkins Delusion" by Alister McGrath
