A rather new and suitable textbook for the course with more physics and less mathematics is J. B. Hartle: Gravity - An introduction to Einstein's General Relativity.

Very good is also the book by S. Carroll: Spacetime and Geometry - An introduction to General Relativity. A prelimenary version of this book you can get for free at the arXiv
