Authentic Theology -- Articles by Steve Gardner

Thoughts on Theology, Public Policy, and Religion

About aims at authentic, honest, and clear discussions about theology.

I am a third-year student at the Wake Forest University School of Divinity, studying for a Master of Divinity (M. Div.) degree.  I hope to graduate in May 2019.  I am also a practicing lawyer and clerked for federal judges in North Carolina and Washington, D.C., after law school.  In addition to a law degree, I have graduate and undergraduate degrees in electrical engineering.  I am keen on communicating honestly about theological matters.  My current interest is noticing instances in which religious leaders have made up rules that they declare “from God” and “Biblical” when the Bible either does not speak on the matter or is ambiguous on the point.

I’m glad to talk with your group (any kind, small or large, of any denomination or none) about any topic addressed in one of my articles.  I can approach the discussion any way you like.  One of my favorite ways is to present both sides of an issue so that your group can have a better understanding of the various views, rather than to advocate a particular conclusion.  I am currently serving in a public-theology internship and this service is free.
