I think there is a great deal of value in reading the works of other faiths. What have you read from other faiths or beliefs that you enjoyed? This not a thread to say, "I read XYZ and it was ridiculous." Only list what you read and would reccomend.

My list:
The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius
The Golden Sayings of Epictetus
The Analects of Confucious
ETA These three I like for the same reason. They have a lot of great No-so-common sense wisdom and pithy statements.
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance an excellent book on living your faith

Machiavelli: The Prince
Nietzsche: Beyond Good and Evil

Many, many more.

I've never read anything in Nietzche that I've appreciated except, "Women have many problems, and the solution to all of them is pregnancy."
