Razib has a fascinating (part 1 of 2) book review of Philip Jenkins' newest book, God's Continent: Christianity, Islam, and Europe's Religious Crisis
Jenkins has for some time been making waves with his books about the demographics of Christianity in the third world, such as The Next Christendom and also attracted some attention Catholic circles with The New Anti-Catholicism: The Last Acceptable Prejudice.
In his latest book, he tackles the shifting demographics of European Christianity, both the question of the "death of European Christianity" and the alleged coming of Eurabia. Razib's own comments (as an atheist from a Muslim background, with a libertarian set of political leanings) are also fascinating and incisive.
