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

New Believer

Dear Dr. Boyd I just wanted to thank you for the way “Benefit of the doubt” has helped me. I am rather new to God, having been given my faith only a few years ago. I am also too tired by my work to have the energy for much abstruse

Dear Gaby

The Real Enemy

We received a letter from one of our supporters that we thought was worth sharing, but we’ve left out the name of the author and other details for reasons that will become obvious as you read on. We hope this will both challenge and bless you.  I have been a

A Testimony and a Kingdom Sighting

We received a letter here at ReKnew that really touched us and we wanted to share it with you. It’s easy to feel isolated when the body of Christ is spread out far and wide. We hope this letter from Nova Scotia and this video will be encouragement to you.

From the Heart: Where “Forgiveness” Crosses a Line

Here’s a letter we received recently. It’s a great testimony about bringing the Kingdom vision to a place where it is totally foreign. Dear Greg, I suspect that this email echoes some of the sentiments expressed by many others who contact you on a steady basis. By way of a

Soldier of Conscience

David D. Flowers posted this testimony of the life and death of Joshua Casteel (1979-2012). Joshua was an interrogator at Abu Ghraib when he was confronted by the contradiction between his role as a soldier and his identity as a Christian. This confrontation came from the unlikeliest of sources; it

From the Heart: Paradigm Shift

Hi Greg & Greg’s family, Nice meeting you at the “Hellbound?” showing tonight. :-) With all my heart, thank you for showing me the gospel of the Kingdom of Jesus through your ministry. I read “The Myth of the Christian Nation” while deployed to Baghdad, Iraq in 2007. Seeing you

From the Heart

Here’s a short testimony sent in from a reader: Hi there Greg, I read your commentary on Romans 9 recently, and reread it again today. I struggled with this chapter prior to becoming a Christian and it made me hate God. Even after I became a Christian I wrestled with
