Book Review – Letters from a Skeptic

Does anyone else get a little sad when a good book ends? I do. The thought of finding another book I can get engrossed into seems exhausting.

booksI just finished “Letters from a Skeptic: A Son Wrestles with his Father’s Questions about Christianity” by Dr Gregory A Boyd and Edward Boyd. VERY good book, whether you are a believer or not. It provides a good sense of why Greg believes in his faith and how his semi-scientific approach helped him makes sense of it all and come to complete faith. I think everyone should grab a copy and read it, not to convert your beliefs but it’s just a good read. Underneath it all I appreciate how the son (Greg) found something to speak to his father about, it seems as though they never really had that and found something in religion to discuss

I think some aspects of the book definitely helped my understanding of Christianity. I’ve taken a very skeptical approach to religion for the past 7-10 years or so and always wondered how people can believe with such conviction in something “that cannot be proven”.

Interesting read for sure.
