Product Description

Over the course of almost three years Greg Boyd and his father Ed corresponded about Christianity, the Bible and faith, Ed, a skeptic with a lot of questions, engages his son's expertise with love, transparency and candor. Greg, a notorious open theist and at the time Professor of Theology at Bethel University, addresses his father's questions and misconceptions about the issue dividing them in an attempt to reconcile his feelings about his father. Relying on more of a 'Pascal's Wager' type of challenge than a true call to repentance and faith, Greg gives his father the best information about Christianity that he had at the time.

Publisher's Description

Greg Boyd and his father, Ed, were on opposite sides of a great divide. Greg was a newfound Christian, while his father was a longtime agnostic. So Greg offered his father an invitation: Ed could write with any questions on Christianity, and his son would offer a response.

Letters from a Skeptic contains this special correspondence. The letters tackle some of today's toughest challenges facing Christianity, including

Do all non-Christians go to hell?
How can we believe a man rose from the dead?
Why is the world so full of suffering?
How do we know the Bible was divinely inspired?
Does God know the future?

Each response offers insights into the big questions, while delivering intelligent answers that connect with both the heart and mind. Whether you're a skeptic, a believer, or just unsure, these letters can provide a practical, common-sense guide to the Christian faith.

    This review was written for Letters from a Skeptic.
    Overall this is an interesting and informative book. I did have some issues with Boyd's theology, particularly open theism. But, once you get past the problem of evil, the book takes a more traditional approach to apologetics. I recommend it with reservations.

    This review was written for Letters from a Skeptic.
    For over a decade, we have used this book as the basis of an evangelistic group for unbelievers or people who want to believe but have doubts or intellectual barriers to faith. We have seen many people come to faith through it. Ed asks honest questions that many intelligent people have about the Christian faith. Using logic and historical evidence, Greg helps break down Ed's barriers to faith in a loving, gentle and respectful way. This book is not only a good source of apologetic information, it's also a great model of loving and respectful evangelism.

    Although the letters about God were intellectual and not so much love based. The facts are interesting and it seems to be what the father needed to help him understand.

    This review was written for Letters from a Skeptic.
    I came across this book because it was mentioned in Lee Strobel's "Case For..." series, and I have to admit I am very disappointed. The premise for this book is great, I was very excited to read the correspondence, but I just do not see Boyd's "Open Theology" as being Biblically sound. It's a shame, because this book had such potential, but I simply could not stomach the watered down picture of God that was painted. I will not be recommending this to anyone.
