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.

One of my favourite favourite books. We need apologetics like Greg Boyd and Lee Strobel.

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.

Be sure Jesus lives.

This book answers the questions that nag everyone that struggles with Christianity. I have purchased multiple copies including audibles because it really touched me. It left no question in my mind unanswered. I have shared those copies with people I love.

This book saved my faith

I grew up as a Christian, amazing Christian home with parents who loved me and fought for my well being and spiritual faith. Much to their horror I rejected everything they said for many years causing them unimaginable pain and suffering, yet they loved me through it. After years I had a suicide attempt that was cut off from what can only be God Intervention. I dropped all I had and followed Jesus the next day at a church service I found myself sitting. Though over the years the simple love of Jesus was buried with doctrine, theology, apologetics and my love got lost in it all. My skepticism and anger grew, especially after I got married to my wonderful wife. I saw I couldnt fake the happiness or the “walk of faith” any more. My questions were every single one Greg’s amazing father had. This book sank its teeth into me, and Jesus healed the hardness around the heart saying, “it’s about me,” and I’m floored. The end had me in tears for about 30 mins after reading. I’m serious, non stop tears. What a beautiful book, and a God glorifying story! How beautiful Jesus is comes out bright as can be in this book! ITS A MUST LISTEN TOO!

Life changing

A very thorough and convincing case that faith In Christ alone by grace alone is THE most reasonable thing a person can do when he or she considers all of the evidence and all of the options.

So eye-opening!

I’ve been a Christian for almost all of my life and I had never really taken the time to look into the objections skeptics and agnostics may have to the Christian faith. This collection of letters between Greg Boyd and his dad are candid, raw and delightful, all at the same time. I would really recommend this book!

Amazed

This book actually encouraged me to reach out to a lost friend in similar shape as the father in the story. While I’m still in the midst of the debate I’ve learned more about my own faith than I could have ever imagined throughout this book. The story within the apologetics to me, sets this book apart. By far my favorite book I’ve read to this date.

Gave me answers to questions I had.

It was amazing how step by step a son change the way of thinking of his father.
