Overview

Daniel Migliore's Faith Seeking Understanding has been a standard introduction to Christian theology for more than a decade. The book's presentation of traditional doctrine in freshly contemporary ways, its concern to hear and critically engage new voices in theology, and its creative and accessible style have kept it one of the most stimulating, balanced, and readable guides to theology available.

This second edition of Faith Seeking Understanding features improvements from cover to cover. Besides updating and expanding the entire text of the book, Migliore has added two completely new chapters. The first, "Confessing Jesus Christ in Context," explores the unique contributions to Christian theology made by recent theologians working in the African American, Asian American, Latin American, Hispanic, feminist, womanist, and mujerista traditions. The second new chapter, "The Finality of Jesus Christ and Religious Pluralism," addresses the growing interest in the relationship of Christianity to other religions and their adherents. Migliore's three delightful theological dialogues are followed by a new appendix, an extensive glossary of theological terms, making the book even more useful to students seeking to understand the history, themes, and challenges of Christian belief.

The delivery was very satisfactory and everything came well packaged. This is a great textbook for theology or theological inquiry. With a passion, this will be a fantastic resource.

I had to read this for a class in college, and it is not an easy read. Even my professor who was a seminary student when he read it had trouble following some of Migliore's point. Not to say it isn't a good book, he just gets a little wordy sometimes and his argument is lost in the heavy jargon. My suggestion if you'e reading this for a class, take your time and find what's in italics, those are usualy his main points.

You will read and reread Migliore: what he says is profound and you must take the time to meditate on many topics. His exploration of Theodicy is deep, difficult, demanding and devotional. Beginners might be overwhelmed by this book unless they are willing to spend alot of time going over the material. Migliore's take on the ministry is inspiring.

Daniel Migliore's book 'Faith Seeking Understanding' is one of the best books on Christian Theology I have ever encountered. He lays out the basic prinicples in an orderly, understandable fashion, and gives the reader a strong desire to keep learning and exploring on their own.
