Some of my favorites...

"Blankets" by Craig Thompson - A graphic novel. It is the author's personal story of losing his Christian faith as a senior in high school. Beautiful stuff.

"Mistakes Were Made - But Not by Me" by Tavris and Aronson - Cognitive Dissonance Theory

"The Righteous Mind" by Jonathan Haidt - Moral psychology applied to religion and politics. This challenged my thinking a lot. I read it multiple times.

Anything written by Bart Ehrman. He is a very accessible NT scholar and ex-Christian.
