Daniel Migliore's Faith Seeking Understanding has been a standard introduction to Christian theology for more than a decade. This second edition 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 of recent theologians working in the African American, Asian American, Latin American, Hispanic, feminist, womanist, and mujerista traditions. The second, "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 for understanding the history, themes, and challenges of Christian belief.Table of ContentsAcknowledgmentsPreface to the Second EditionPreface to the First EditionSources Frequently Cited1.
