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.

How does the Christian faith help us see into the true nature of life more clearly? Why do people suffer? Where do we come from? What does Jesus have to say to a changing world? What can we learn from great mission pioneers about seeking truth at the cutting edges of human knowledge? Faith Seeking Understanding explores such questions. Notable Christian thinkers such as Philip Yancey, Alvin Plantinga, Rodney Stark, Allan Chapman, Don Richardson, Yuan Zhiming, and more share powerful insights that, from the perspective of Christian faith, help answer people's deepest questions in the twenty-first century. Inspired by the lives and accomplishments of Paul Brand and Ralph D. Winter, this book seeks to apply the curious, open-minded, and compassionate spirit these Christian leaders exhibited to key contemporary questions in science, history, philosophy, theology, and comparative religion. The reader will gain a fresh appreciation for the intellectual challenges of the Christian faith, and some of the most fascinating and sometimes controversial ways in which those challenges are being met.

What should we do when our experience seems to clash with our theology when what we know about the character of God and how he acts is contradicted by our experience of the harsh realities of life? This is not a new situation, but one that believers have found themselves in down through the centuries. It was also the experience of Asaph, the author of Psalm 73. In Faith Seeking Understanding Iain D. Campbell takes us on a journey through this wonderful psalm. He traces Asaph's attempts to make sense of his experience using his own rational powers, and shows us how fresh understanding came only when Asaph entered the 'sanctuary of God'. So too with us it is when we draw 'near God' that we realise where our chief and lasting good is to be found.
