A superb, standard Christian theology text for nearly a quarter century, Daniel Migliore's Faith Seeking Understanding explores all of the major Christian doctrines in freshly contemporary ways. This third edition offers new FOR FURTHER READING suggestions at the end of each chapter, a substantial expansion of the glossary, and new material incorporated throughout, including a section on Christians and Muslims.
Further, the three imaginary theological dialogues culminating the book -- pointedly playful exchanges that have delighted countless readers -- are here joined by a fourth dialogue, between Karl Barth and Friedrich Nietzsche, on atheism. All in all, a new generation of students, pastors, and Christian educators, eager to better understand the rich heritage, central themes, and contemporary challenges of Christian theology, will find both guidance and stimulation in Migliore's updated work.
Daniel L. Migliore is Charles Hodge Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology at Princeton Theological Seminary, Princeton, New Jersey.
Cornelius Plantinga Jr.
"A book that manages to be at once deeply traditional and freshly contemporary. . . . Hearty, winsome, and mature, Faith Seeking Understanding sharpens the same appetite it satisfies. Migliore everywhere shows that he knows the difference between what is usual in theology and what is vital."
"Presents theology in language that can be readily grasped by the theological beginner. Hurrah!"
The Expository Times
"This is theology with a sure and sharp pastoral touch. . . . An ideal primer in doctrine for students."
Religious Studies Review
"A seminary and undergraduate standard. . . . Migliore has thoroughly recrafted the volume in his lively and accessible style."
"An admirable success. . . . Migliore hits just the right intermediate range to fill a real need."
“Twenty-five years after it was first published, this book still maintains its status as one of the finest introductions to Christian theology in our time. . . . Outstanding for students and equally important for pastors who desire to sustain their theological skills or simply enjoy a good theological conversation.”
