by Roy A. Cheville

"There is much jabbering and 'thin soup’ in teen-age conversation, but there is concern, too, about matters that we call theological," writes Dr. Cheville in his introduction to this book. "Teens are wanting to think things through." The author has been a friend of youth for many years. In his conversations he has felt the deep and serious desire among teen-agers to "talk theologically" with both peers and adults who talk their language.

For this reason, Dr. Cheville has written this book—a sort of guidebook and reference for teen-agers who want to explore together or for youth and adults who want to sit down as companions and talk things through toward a larger perspective and clearer conception of what is called theology.
