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.

It is an undeniable fact that the very concept of hell is shrouded in mystery. We know what books and movies tell us hell is like, but we’re left with so many questions. Is hell simply a place where sinners are sent to suffer for their sins, or is it much, much more than that? All You Want to Know About Hell breaks down the three most popular views on hell and tells us what the Bible really says about this terrifying and mystifying place. From the “traditional” view of hell as a place of eternal torment to the early Christian view that hell is a place of suffering intended to purge sin and to bring about repentance, no other book gives such in-depth biblical insight into the truths about hell that are hidden in all the hype. Features include: Complete coverage of the three most popular views on hell Clear explanation of what Scripture really says An easy and interesting read for laypeople, pastors, and scholars alike

In The Irrational Atheist Vox Day, writer, columnist and software designer, challenges three authors, Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, on their own ground—reason itself. Day argues persuasively that Dawkins, Harris and Hitchens employ false assertions and faulty reasoning throughout their works. From the assertion that religion drives wars to the analysis showing blue states are more moral than red states, Day, in this rigorously documented work, dissects the false conclusions and shows exactly why they are wrong. The Irrational Atheist does not argue from a religious or Biblical perspective—its arguments are purely based on hard factual data and careful reasoning.

Have you ever asked how God's knowledge of the future impacts your life today? Frustrating God offers a challenge to the assumptions of open theism and provides answers that are both refreshing and new. Theologians and laypeople alike have struggled with the extent God's knowledge, the limitations of human free will, and the practical implications these ideas have for everyday life. Why doesn't God do something about all the evil in the world? Have you ever tried to answer the question about God's goodness in light of the fact that people He created will be lost for all eternity? How can God answer prayers if He does not know and may not be able to anticipate the future consequences of those answers? How do we resolve the apparent conflict between human freedom and God's overwhelming power? You can find the answer to these and many more questions in Frustrating God. In this challenge to the theological view of open theism, Pastor Luis Scott offers a radically new alternative to the seemingly tense relationship between God's foreknowledge and human free will. This deepened understanding of God's nature can enhance your perception of a God so magnificent that the only word to describe our struggle to know Him is frustrating. In Frustrating God you will begin a journey to a deeper knowledge of the mysterious God of the Bible--the God who baffles us, but loves us enough to lay the penalty of sin upon His beloved Son.
