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.

    "A beautiful narrative of the journey to salvation"

    Though I must admit I have a couple of big issues with Greg Boyd's theology, this story of redemption makes that easy to overlook. An incredible, respectful and loving conversation between two men who disagree. So important for engaging with others about anything and most especially things of eternal value. Highly recommend it.

    "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!

    Story
    "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.
