As a layman/ non-professional with an interest in theology I feel priced out of this market and have to make some tough choices about what books I will read. Two books on my list, just for example, Anthropology in Theological Perspective (Pannenberg) and Space,Time,and Incarnation (Torrance), would cost me about 150.00 at the moment. Why are theology books so expensive nowadays? I've seen the price of books increase with inflation, but this category is the worst for markup outside of textbooks for a class.

I just did a quick search on ABEbooks.com and it looks like you could get both for $50. Perhaps part of the problem is where you shop. And then, of course, specialty books in any field tend to be more expensive.
