Best-selling author Philip Yancey writes on a diverse range of topics that touch on the fields of history, science, religion, ethics, and more in this new edition of I Was Just Wondering. These stimulating columns originally written for Christianity Today offer readers short, penetrating observations on this universe, the earth, the church, and the Christian life. Questions such as:
  • Why is sex fun?
  • Where did racist hatred come from?
  • Why do so many Christians feel more guilty than forgiven?
  • How do you write or talk about theology in a society that still uses the theological words, but has changed their meanings?
  • What is God like?
  • Why do people show great interest in "near-death experiences" but no interest in death experiences?
First published in 1989, this revised and updated edition of I Was Just Wondering offers a level-headed, honest journey into questions that are just as important and challenging to readers today.

Library Journal
"When Yancey couples his vibrant curiosity with his felicitous style and then begins reflecting on everything under the sun, the result is a collection of stimulating observations bound to nudge and encourage a reader's own reflective powers. . . Enthusiastically recommended."
"When was the last time you had a deep conversation with a friend?... That's what it's like reading Yancey's book. . . The perfect gift for a 'thinker."
Moody Monthly
"Yancey is one of the truly creative and insightful Christian writers today."
Theological Book Review
"A series of short pieces written with insight and integrity, many of which are a gentle form of Christian apologetics for a secular society. This book could also be an excellent resource for preachers—if only many of them could emulate Yancey's learning and relaxed style—and should be of interest to the lay Christian also."
