Item description for Faith Seeking Understanding: An Introduction to Christian Theology by Daniel L. Migliore...

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Faith Seeking Understanding: An Introduction to Christian Theology?

Wishy-washy Neo-Orthodoxy  Jan 17, 2008
While my title is certainly purported to be pejorative towards Daniel Migliore's 'Faith Seeking Understanding', I should note that the term 'neo-orthodoxy' is not used in a completely belittling manner. Much of Migliore's writing claims to be inspired by the work of Swiss Reformed theologian Karl Barth, although how recognisable Barth would find his work as represented here is another debate.

The main problem presented in Migliore's textbook is that he simply refuses to express a solid position on any doctrinal issue, apart from that no Scripture or Creed can truly reflect the Triune God of Christianity. Rather than concede that this merely leads to emotive, subjective religion ala John Spong, much of his book is spent promoting a vague, 'reforming' religion with no real indication of its foundation or future.

That is not to say that Migliore has no real principles. He eschews any suggestion that traditional or `conservative' Christianity has a future in the world. He dismisses debate on abortion, homosexuality and the ordination of women to the priesthood as divisive and irrelevant, preferring to highlight the utter importance of `green' issues and the creation of a `welcoming', `vibrant' community. Even in his endorsements he is, however, complimentary evasive and his terse dismissal of straw opposition reveals his inability to consider the substantial existence of any position opposed to his bland spirituality.

There are one or two snippets of useful theological information in this book but they are spread too thinly amongst ill-thought ideas and clichéd Modernist sentiments.
 
Must have this book  Jan 13, 2008
This is an extraordinaire theology book very actual. The author explains complexes and profounds points of view in a very practical way. For lay people, seminary students and pastors.
 
Faith Seeking Understanding: An Intro. to Christian Theology  Oct 30, 2007
An excellent one volume introduction to the major theological themes of Christian thinking from a Bartian point of view. Dr. Migliore's writing is clear, fresh and historically exhaustive. I have recommended this book to all of my friends as a keeper.
 
Tells It Like It Is  Mar 19, 2007
Being a seminary student I have plodded through a lot of theology textbooks. This one goes beyond the rest mainly, I think, because it is grounded in the sensible (formerly radical) ideas of John Barth. It is thorough without being heavy-handed, clear without being too long, and sits on the correct premise that everything starts and ends with Jesus Christ as God in concrete form. That's how we know God -- through Christ. It's almost as if I can throw out my other books -- this seems to cover it all. Kudos, Migliore.
 
A Wonderfully straightforward read.  Jan 4, 2007
For anyone interested in theological understanding of their faith as a Christian this is an excellent book. Only a few chapters were assigned as part of a seminary Christology class. But because the language was straightfoward and a very easy read I bought it and read the entire book.
