Item description for I've Been Wondering: Conversations with Young Theologians by Richard B. Steele...

Overview
College and seminary students rarely have a "voice" in theological discussions. True, there are many books written for them. Introductions to the Bible, surveys of church history, anthologies of theological classics, overviews of Christian doctrine, and dictionaries of the various theological sub-disciplines abound. But it is one thing for professional theologians to answer the questions they think their students ought to be asking, and quite another thing for them to listen and respond to the questions their students are actually asking. This book does the latter. It contains a selection of email correspondence, which the author exchanged with his undergraduate theology students between the years 1997 and 2005 on matters pertaining to Christian faith and ethics. Most of the exchanges were triggered by questions that occurred to the students while they were taking one of the author's undergraduate courses in theology, ethics, or church history. But the letters themselves are anything but "academic" exercises. They are intensely personal and reveal what is going on in the depths of the student soul. An exciting adventure of the human spirit as well as a stimulating challenge to the critical intellect is waiting for students and professors of theology or those on a lifelong study of Christianity.
