 Sorry, this FAQ list cannot settle religious arguments.

 Much of the heat over this topic arises because each person believes
 that the book that he or she learned from is the best book, but
 different people have very different experiences of the same book. The
 only person who can tell you which is the best book for learning a given
 topic is you.

 Your best bet is to go to a fairly well stocked bookstore when you have
 a couple of hours to spare. Start at one end of the shelf and work your
 way methodically through every book that looks like it might cover what
 you want to learn. Look at the tables of contents; read a page or two
 from each book. Then make your decision. If money is a problem or if
 you're not sure of your choice, check out your top two or three from
 your library.
