Daniel Migliorebs "Faith Seeking Understanding" has been a standard introduction to Christian theology for more than a decade. The books 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.<P>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, b addresses the growing interest in the relationship of Christianity toother religions and their adherents. Migliorebs 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.<BR><P>"Praise for the first edition: "<P>bOne of the best of the new systematic theologies to be published .<BR>-- "Religious Studies Review"<P>Migliorebs goal is to present theology in language that can be readily grasped by the theological beginner.
