Another great series of historical fiction is done by Brock and Bodie Thoene. They've written a LOT of books, and each leads into the next. Your group could take a year or two to go through the series. You may like their AD Chronicles, which take place in the time of Jesus. Here's a link to their website: Thoene Books FAQ
Let us know what you decide!

Jesus for the Nonreligious by John Shelby Spong (of all his I've read, this has the best summary of his theology, etc, and in no way is meant only for the nonreligious.)
The First Christmas: What the Gospels Really Teach about Jesus' Birth and
The Last Week, both books by the team of Marcus J. Borg & John Dominic Crossan.
Religious Literacy by Prothero
And for more recommendations, a man in my church who is a retired physicist/professor and is extremely well-read in the subject of religion has a book review website with scads and scads of books:
What Fred Has Read
Some of these I've studied at our church in my adult Sunday School classes over the last 3 or so years and have really enjoyed the discussions.
Edited to add:
Here's Fred's review of The First Christmas review
