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.

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.

Sheds light on many questions.

I truly enjoyed the story and discussion between father and son, and it helped me with many questions and concerns I have been having with becoming Christian again. Like many others I was raised Catholic and for many reasons have had trouble with pieces of the religion. Recently my family has begun attending a Christian church and found the pastor and his message to feel like the real deal. As a result I’ve been looking for books to help me with understanding the differences from my previous understanding and so far this was the best for me. Hope it helps you too.

This book answered many of my questions.

I'm a catholic and though some parts of the book I disagreed, particularly where it concerned his disagreement with the catholic faith, I really enjoyed listening to this book. I've read many apologetic books and was already familiar with many parts of his explanations. But this book helped me resolve my issue with other faiths and how we can be sure the Holy Bible is the only truth. Thank you so much for this book and also thanks to the father of the author for intellectually raising the hurdles that must be overcome by skeptical folks. I want to share this book with skeptics among my friends.

love this book!

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