I finished this awhile ago and am just now getting around to posting about it.

Letters from a Skeptic: A Son Wrestles with His Father's Questions about Christianity by Dr. Gregory A. Boyd, Edward K. Boyd

If you like Christian apologetics with a little touch of philosophy mixed in, I recommend this book. If you like to see the way that God can work in even the most skeptical person's heart and watch the progress as the Holy Spirit roots around and finds a home, I highly recommend this book. Slightly organized by topic but mostly organized as a chronological correspondance between a father and his son with a phd in apologetics, this book is a beautiful way to firsthand experience God's miracles. I cried at the end when the son wrote in an epilogue about what a changed man his father became and the amazing simplicity of his new faith. Some of the explanations helped my faith to grow a bit, others I may have disagreed with or not understood, but more than anything else I was really touched by the ultimate change in the father and desperately wanted that for myself.

45 to go.
