Share Your Testimony

Like seeing color for the first time

I just want to express my thanks for being so willing to beat the path for so many into understanding the beautiful character of our Loving Heavenly Father. I grew up as a good evangelical Christian in Australia, encouraged not to question too much the doctrines that seemed to paint

Life has been breathed into my faith again!

Hello, I just finished reading “The Myth of a Christian Nation”, and I was moved to come to your website. I have, like many, felt adrift in the current church climate. Sometimes I would feel so confused while listening to teachings where the Pharisees were clearly in the wrong, and

The testimony that made Greg cry

Greg, I have two thoughts to share. First is just my own gratitude for your most recent work on “Crucifixion of the Warrior God.” The second is a personal story I hope you’ll read! It’s from my work with traumatized children, and I think you’ll find it fascinating and a

Awake to God

Dr. Boyd, I am a teacher out on Long Island at a Lutheran middle and high school. I grew up in Minnesota and in fact went to college at Bethel University but did not have the privilege of being able to have you in class. A couple of weeks ago,

Thank You

Hi, I just wanted to say thank you to Dr. Boyd for all that he has done. I am reading his latest book, Crucifixion of the Warrior God, and it is helping me very much. I am one of those “pod-rishioners.” I live in Spartanburg, SC. I grew up in

Appreciation for Crucifixion of the Warrior God

Dear Greg, I want to thank you deeply for the work that you are doing. I have just started reading Crucifixion of the Warrior God (but have deeply followed your work on Reknew) and I agree with all points of your cruciform thesis. I want to encourage you to keep

Freed for Relationship

Dear Greg, Thanks so much for writing all of your books, but especially Satan and the Problem of Evil. I am one of those ethnic Mennonites, but did not grow up in the Mennonite church. Instead, I grew up in the Nazarene church. After many years of reading your material,

Good Reads

Dear Dr. Boyd, Finished TRINITY AND PROCESS a few days ago. One of the best books I’ve read in a long time. Just wanted to drop a line to congratulate you on the accomplishment of writing a book like this. I found it educational and clear, and I was amazed

On Dehumanizing Theology

Hi Pastor Boyd, Just stopping by to express my gratitude for your work. For some time now, I’ve been undergoing some deep crises of faith because of the doctrine which Calvinists seem to ironically find so much comfort in: predestination. The idea of predestination has troubled me to a point

The Hunger

I have spent my entire life in selfish pursuit of the hunger you have always talked about. This hunger has led me down very dark pathways, and even to prison–not once, but twice. I have had an addiction to pornography all my adult life, and it was this addiction that

Beautiful Good News

I just wanted to thank Greg and everyone involved in this ministry from the bottom of my heart. I’ve devoured the media content from ReKnew and the Woodland Hills Church website, and it has revealed a God, and a Jesus, that seemingly for the first time in my life I am falling

Hungry Ex-Atheist

Greg … I wrote you last week (through ReKnew I think) about having discovering your teaching on “Open Theism”. Since then I have viewed several of your teachings on YouTube on a variety of subjects. I’m stunned, pleasantly stunned; there simply is no other way to put it. I was

Thanks from the Netherlands

Hello! Just wanted to say how much I learned thanks to the messages from Greg, both in sermons and in this blogs. I come from the Netherlands, and ever since I read Letters from a Skeptic, I knew that Greg had a gift in explaining difficult stuff in the Bible

Finding Grace

I did not begin a relationship with Jesus until I was 40. It is obvious now that He was always waiting, but it took the persistent, loving witness of a coworker during a time of deep, personal turmoil (of which she had no idea) to finally bring me to my

Peace-making

Dr. Boyd, I wanted to say thanks for your stand for Christian peace-making. When I was a sophomore in college, the school brought Sean Hannity to campus for a lecture. At the time, I was still a pretty new Christian. I had not read Wink or you or pacifism yet. All

Atheism, Doubts, Faith, and Dads

Dr. Boyd, I began listening to your book, Letters from a Skeptic: A Son Wrestles with His Father’s Questions about Christianity, on tape yesterday while walking in my neighborhood, and before long I was totally absorbed, tears running down my face, as I recalled my life with my own father.

The REAL Good News

Thank you so much for your wrestling with scripture. I always loved God and wanted to serve Him with my whole heart growing up, but I was stuck with an image of Him that left me wanting. I never thought I was good enough for Him. I always thought that

YES!

Greg, I love your books and your sermons; they have challenged me to think about the questions I have had and what I have believed, or just accepted. I have learned also to accept that me is ok; the me that is such an out-of-the-box thinker, the me that has questioned certain scriptures

Healing from Bad Theology

Greg Boyd, I just wanted to write you a quick email to let you know that I read God at War (and am currently working on Satan and the Problem of Evil…and the Myth of the Christian Nation) and it has literally changed my life! This has just been such

No Longer Afraid of Doubt

Since high school, I had been struggling with my faith. I was so afraid that if what I believed was wrong, I’d be reduced to nothing but a grain of sand on an endless and purposeless beach. It continually depressed me, and I found it difficult to have any hope
