Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JJ | 2/20/2014

    " I took my time with this book since it is deep and a lot to think about. It dragged a bit in the middle for me but mostly I really thought it was good. The dialog between father and son helped answer many of my own questions about faith. I own this if anyone wants to borrow it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 2/18/2014

    " I know that Greg Boyd is controversial and there is one particular part of this book that I totally disagreed with BUT it clarified a lot for me and was well worth the time to read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tricia | 2/12/2014

    " Nice sentiment between son and father however the reasoning and theology are seriously flawed. I do not recommend at all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trillian1117 | 2/10/2014

    " I cannot say enough good things about this book. It answered a lot questions I've had and provides great insight in a straight forward and honest manner. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve Bedford | 2/2/2014

    " Fantastic read. I would highly recommend it to anybody interested in the subject. It was interesting to see how Boyd's views have changed and become more nuanced over time (this book is nearly 20 years old now, very weird to consider that fact). He paints a beautiful picture of Christianity, and I love the resolution. Some of his arguments may be a little light, but they weren't meant to be very technically detailed. If this bothers you, try reading one of his later books that are on those topics specifically. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Selyn | 1/30/2014

    " Informative, inspiring, helpful. Offers some satisfying answers to some of the toughest questions re: the Christian faith. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John Ediger | 1/21/2014

    " Completely unconvincing to someone with a basic understanding of logic and the scientific method. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Drew J | 1/17/2014

    " a lighter, more tangible version of The Case for Christ or Mere Christianity. Not as insightful or intellectual, but still thought-provoking "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Steve | 12/24/2013

    " Overall an enjoyable read and a good opening point for discussion. However, the theology is rather shaky at times, so be prepared before going in. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam | 10/4/2013

    " My first foray into Boyd's writings. Very readable book, something you can pick up and put down a few times without losing the flow. I need to go back and review it again soon. Boyd has some interesting takes on some theological questions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mae | 8/11/2013

    " This is a fantastic book on apologetics. It's a series of letters written between Greg Boyd and his father, Edward. They ask honest questions that most of us have probably wondered, but been to ashamed or inarticulate to ask. A great intellectual read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann Thomas | 8/3/2013

    " Letters between a professor of theology and his father, dealing with objections to Christianity. Very well explained. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff Borgman | 6/11/2013

    " A good intoduction to Christian apologetics through the eyes of a father/son conversation. The book provides significant content on Christian theology without being too overbearing. Good thought provoker and conversation piece for introducing people to Christianity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gibby | 5/9/2013

    " A must read for all skeptics and cynics. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruth | 5/3/2013

    " I found some new insights into ancient culture I had never heard before. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deanna | 2/22/2013

    " This is a great book, although his "open" view of God is in evidence, so read with discernment! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Belinda Daniels | 7/17/2012

    " Great book that raises tough questions about christianity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 William Norvell | 6/17/2012

    " Great read for new believers, old believers or nonbelievers. This book addresses many of the major issue people have with Christianity and I would gladly pass along (and have) to anyone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue Evenson | 11/13/2011

    " Although I disagree with his open theistic approach, the apologetic portion of the book was great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark-robyn | 9/9/2011

    " A book that well addresses the issues pertinent to a skeptic. The personal touch of the relationship between father and son was an added delight to follow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan Chance | 6/11/2011

    " Son (Christian) proposes to father (skeptic) that they share their ideas about faith and the conversation begins. Dad pulls no punches. Son has GREAT ANSWERS. Dad finally says 'that makes sense.' If you have questions as I did, listen to this father/son discussion. RECOMMENDED! "

    " answers a lot of questions one might have on christianity. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Corissa | 3/30/2011

    " This was a thought provoking, interesting read. I didn't agree with all of the authors theology but still enjoyed reading the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Casey | 2/23/2011

    " This book is great! I loved the dialogue. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cynthia Jeub | 1/29/2011

    " Boyd's other books are better. He doesn't have as much solid reasoning in this book, and his points are better expressed by other Christian authors. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 1/21/2011

    " Give this book to anyone who wants to have basic answers answered about God. "
