    "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!

    "I thought the father had a lot better arguments"

    My next book will be "A Case for God" by Karen Armstrong. For people like myself, who believe in God, but do not believe that being a Christian is about having to believe a dozen things I can't believe before breakfast every the morning, "Letters from a Skeptic" was a complete turn-off. I do believe in God, and like the author's father, I have a great many questions. I thought the author came off as patronizing and presumptuous. Instead of addressing these very difficult questions in any thoughtful fashion, his arguments for Christianity centered primarily around the facuality of events in the Bible. At least he did concede that one does not have to take the "talking snake" as a literal event to be a Christian.
