Item description for Letters From A Skeptic w/Study Guide by Gregory A. Boyd & Edward K. Boyd...

Presents a profound defense of the Christian faith, filled with intelligent questions often asked by new and non-believers along with insightful and practical answers. Original.

Publishers 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Letters From A Skeptic w/Study Guide?

Con game or what?  Feb 12, 2009
After perusing the Chapter heads, I went to the study guide and worked back sampling the text. Though it may be unjustified, I couldn't help thinking "this could be a real con job!". Doesn't it seem more than likely that the letters were intended for publication from the beginning, so the conclusion was fore-gone! The book would not have been published if the father hadn't been born again! Shallow, at best!
An Honest Exchange of Questions and Answers re: Christianity  Jan 25, 2009
This is an incredible book. I have read it and then bought numerous copies to give away to family and friends. The exchange of correspondence between the author and his father pulls no punches. Nothing is sugarcoated. The author gives well thought out and biblically sound answers to an apparently well educated father who has very legitimate questions regarding the Christian faith. This is an excellent book for serious searchers.
Foundations of faith   Dec 16, 2008
This is an excellent book for all those who like the challenge of asking many questions about their basic Christian convictions. The author's father, the skeptic, asked many important questions about the nature of God, the problem of evil, human freedom and sufering, the Bible, heaven and hell, sin, etc. The son tries to answer these complex questions, and one might not always agree with his explanations. But they do provide further food for thought. Letters from a Skeptic will make you think and may result in some lively discussions with fellow believers, agnostics, atheists, and members of other faiths!
Wonderful Read  Nov 23, 2008
I would recommend this book for everyone. The content of this book asks questions that every Christian and non-Christian have asked of God. Down to earth answers are given. It is not preachy; it does distiguish the difference between religion and christianity. Wonderful and insightful.
Don't waste your time  Sep 13, 2008
A friend gave me this book after I had complained about The Shack, and how I felt the ultimate question in The Shack was never answered. I deemed the question to be: "why does God allow bad things to happen to good people?" Well, at least I didn't waste my money purchasing this book.
The format utilized is as old as time itself. Have a dialog with someone where softball questions are posed to the other person and the other person then gives the answer that will change the mind of the original person(in this case the senior Boyd)and never up with any refuting comments of what his son as just said, but rather, give a milk toast response in the following letter.

What would have made this a very intersting response is if some one like Robert M. Price, or Burton Mack, or Earl Doherty had responded to the PhD son. Now, you have a discussion, and what you wouldn't have had is Dr. Boyd's half-baked ideas on his verson of what God is, or on what the scriptures mean.

Others have commented (particularly those that have given one star ratings) that his scholarship on the bible and his interpretation of the bible leaves a lot to be desired. I agree, but for different reasons.
Thank God is was only 190 pages in length. Don't buy it. Not worth the time and energy.
