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.

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.

I couldn't stop listening..

Captivating, fun, informative, and beautiful. The back and forth debate in regards to the common concerns I once had and the belief I now have, is wonderfully portrayed. I started listening yesterday and only paused briefly so that I could sleep. I am sad that it's over lol.

Not convinced

A friend of mine recommended this to me. I just don’t find it convincing though. The son often used poor reasoning and the father let go of beliefs without good reason. That being said there could have been a lot going on outside of the letters.

Oh god, I cried so much reading this

Can’t recommend this enough. I’ll try the same thing to my skeptic dad. I thank god for blessing Greg Boyd for the gift of making sense of complex manners. This is extra powerful with audible as the book itself is a series of letters

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.

love this book!

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