Descrizione

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.

    I really liked this book. No, it doesn't go deep. No, it doesn't anser every question a non-believer might throw at you. However, what it does very well is display a non-confrontational approach to answering the questions of people who are interested in the bible and perhaps investigating their own faith. I see it as a great example of how dialogue can happen between Christians and their friends and family about their faith and why they choose to believe. It also does a very good job of explaining how to deal with those "unaswerable" questions, that often arise.

    Greg's gentleness with his unbelieving father is an example to be followed.
  • (5/5)
    Listening to Greg read Correspondence 10 and the epilogue was truly touching. Love this book and what it did for faith and father/son relationships.
  • (4/5)
    the correspondence covers a wide variety of objections to Christianity with a very personal touch.
  • (1/5)
    The father was a relatively easy‘skeptic’ to be won over.
  • (4/5)
    Good book for skeptics of Christianity. It tackles a lot of questions someone skeptical may have and even can be enlightening for those of us who do believe. A good apologetics book to review. I may not necessarily agree with all the theology presented, but it doesn’t take away from the benefits or points that the book makes.
  • (2/5)
    Did not finish reading. Did not agree with the author's view of my sovereign Lord. I did appreciate though the purpose behind this book; of a son answering his father's questions about his views of God and the Bible.
  • (3/5)
    A good book, illumined some points on Christianity that I had questioned. May not satisfy everyone, but it is compelling.

    how refreshing to hear perplexing, frustrating and painful issues with God debated in the context of a beautiful love relationship between a son and father. The narration is by far the best I have ever experienced. I often found myself standing still in the middle of a room realising I had completely forgotten what I was doing. I couldn't recommend it more highly.

    This book answered a lot of questions that I had. Unfortunately, I gave it to my brother before I could finish it because he was around when I had it and I was afraid that I'd never be able to get it to him if I didn't do it then. I can only hope he finds it useful.

    This Skeptic Never had a ChanceEdward Boyd never had a chance.As the skeptic in this duo, his conversion was never in doubt. The book details three years and more than 30 letters which resulted in Edward Boyd decision to accept Christ.During his journey, he and his son hash through such topics as why the world is so full of suffering; why God needs prayer; how you can believe someone rose from the dead; and how another man's death pardons others. Not that his son, Dr. Gregory Boyd, a professor of theology at Bethel College in St. Paul, MN, was all that convincing. Too often, the apologetics professor restructured or rephrased his father’s legitimate arguments and doubts to ones premised on the acceptance of the faith. This technique is far more effective with believers who have already made the leap of faith and are looking for a rational justification for their decision than a true skeptic.Despite the letter’s brutal honesty, both men exhibit respect and love toward one another as they address these volatile subjects. There is never a doubt that the son is persistent and determined. During the three year long correspondence, Greg reveals he is training for a 100 kilometer running road race championship. In it, he finished as the seventh American and 23rd overall.My only issue with the book lies in its effectiveness at persuading a skeptic without as dedicated a mentor as Greg to make the leap. For those who have already made it this book is a must read.

    Good answers for atheists, bad doctrine for Christians (imputed righteousness)
  • (3/5)
    Not perfect, but filled with well reasoned answers and explanation of conservative Christian belief.
