Publisher's Summary

Greg Boyd longed for his father to know Christ. But as a former atheist turned believer, Greg understood Ed Boyd's reservations. So he offered a unique invitation: His father could write Greg with any questions on Christianity, and he would in turn deliver a thoughtful response.

What began as an intimate correspondence between father and son soon captivated seekers everywhere. Letters from a Skeptic presents a profound defense of the Christian faith. Throughout, listeners will discover a conversation that not only brought Ed Boyd to Christ, but impacted thousands of lives around the world.

    "Life changing!"

    I've always been a believer surrounded by believers. This means I've never had to dissect the belief to the level this book does. During the last letter from the dad, I broke out in full-blown sobs at the absolute grace and beauty.

    "Thought provoking"

    I usually don't like audiobooks read by the author but this was wonderful.

    I so appreciated the honesty and the affection between father and son.

    The end of the book brought tears to my eyes.

    "Enhanced my view of God."

    I have been a Christian my whole life and I learned more through listening to this book than I've learned in years attending church. Gregory Boyd does an excellent job explaining what Christians believe and why. Give this book a listen!

    "Intimacy and Theology"

    Appologetics and theology move beyond academia when delivered with patience and love to one we told dear. Greg's love for his father is a reflection of the love he feels from his creator.

    A fantastic, intimate and complete sharing of the Gospel.

    "Excellent Read"

    Highly recommend for both believers and non-believers. The dialogue between father and son is both honest and authentic. I love that they don't shy away from hard-to-answer questions but I also love that sometimes there isn't a clear cut answer. Truly inspiring!

    "A Love Story Between a Dad and a Son with Purpose!"

    As a Christian I love the insights on apologetics for the reason for my faith. As a father I loved the rapport between father and son. All of the above with a very touching story.

    "Highly Recommend!"
    If you could sum up Letters from a Skeptic in three words, what would they be?

    Intelligent, Articulate, Genuine.


    What other book might you compare Letters from a Skeptic to and why?

    It is even better than other apologetics books I've read, such as "More than a Carpenter" and "The Case for Christ"/"The Case for Faith", because of the personal element, the real, honest doubts, being given real, deep, thoughtful responses.


    What does Greg Boyd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It is wonderful to actually hear Greg reading the letters he wrote to his father. You can hear the passion and emotion in his voice.


    Any additional comments?

    Everyone should read this book!
