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

A Thank You From Serbia

Dear Pastor Greg, Thank you! Your ministry has been a blessing! I am a 23 year old guy from Serbia (Europe). I attended a Bible school for a year in Basel, Switzerland and went to church there. And that’s where I was first introduced to your sermons by Pastor Manuel

No More Hiding

Hey Greg Boyd/ReKnew team! I wanted to sincerely thank you for this website, Greg’s books, and for the Woodland Hill’s sermons. My husband and I have grown up in the conservative Christian church. Our churches had good intentions, but did express to us that asking the “tough” questions was sinful

From Podritioner to Missionary

Hey Pastor Boyd, My name is Nathanael. I am 22 years old and I am from the great state of Michigan (Midwest is best!). I just wanted to thank you so much for your ministry. I grew up in the church, and always have struggled with the violent depictions of

what love looks like

What Love Looks Like

Greg, I thought you would like to see this picture. My 17 year old daughter went to prom 2 weeks ago. She goes to the nursing home on her own 1 to 2 times per week to play bingo and has made many friends. She went to the nursing home before prom to visit her friends. This picture was

Back to Faith

Hello, I read Letters From A Skeptic and God At War in the late 1990’s or early 2000.  Just this month I am completing Satan And The Problem of Evil. After years of being a bible study/small group leader and leading missions trips I quit praying in 2005, became divorced in

Peace Regardless

My oldest son (middle child), who just finished his first year of Divinity School at Harding School of Theology, recently turned me on to Dr. Greg Boyd as an author and theologian. I am a simpleton attorney in Chattanooga, Tennessee who was raised in a very very very very conservative church

Thankful for Resources

Thank you for all the insight you’ve offered through your sermons, Q&A times, books, and website. I don’t think I can adequately express how glad I am to have access to all these resources. Though we’ve never met, through these media, you’ve played a major role in my personal transformation

Reasons to Believe

Dear Greg, So I was recently going through old theology and religious books I haven’t finished reading (that would be pretty much all of them…) and I came across Letters from a Skeptic. This in turn led to me googling Dr. Boyd and eventually led to the ReKnew website and
