Philosopher Russell Blackford and bioethicist Udo Schüklenk are back with another book on atheism, 50 Great Myths About Atheism. From the publisher’s description:
Tackling a host of myths and prejudices commonly leveled at atheism, this captivating volume bursts with sparkling, eloquent arguments on every page. The authors rebut claims that range from atheism being just another religion to the alleged atrocities committed in its name.

Teaches critical thinking skills through detailed, rational argument
Objectively considers each myth on its merits
Includes a history of atheism and its advocates, an appendix detailing atheist organizations, and an extensive bibliography
