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.

Theology and religious studies co-exist in the majority of departments in higher education institutions within the UK, yet there has been very little debate or discussion on how these two disciplines relate to one another in this context and on a more general level. This new collection of essays aims to redress the balance and to add to fruitful discussion in this area Including essays by some of today's leading academics on the sometimes contentious relationship between religious studies - or the study of religions - and theology, this volume is international in scope, with contributions from scholars from the UK, USA, South Africa, Netherlands, Sweden and Iran. Many of the essays offer a contextualised account of the evolving relationship between the disciplines. The contributors address such issues as the place of theology within today's universities; the problem of clashing methodologies in theology and religious studies; the possibility for a 'theological religious studies'; approaching the study of religions without theology; interdisciplinary approaches for bridging the theology/religious studies divide; and the place of biblical studies in the theology/religious studies debate.

Diese Systematische Theologie im Konzept entwirft im Dialog mit Philosophie und Naturwissenschaften eine Position zur Theologie anhand von Fragestellungen zu den Prolegomena, der Gotteslehre, Schöpfungslehre, Anthropologie, Christologie und Pneumatologie, Ekklesiologie, interreligiösem Dialog sowie Eschatologie. Ziel ist es, diese Themen im Lichte einer narrativ-relationalen Ontologie zu beleuchten, die sich dem trinitarischen Wirklichkeitsverständnis des christlichen Glaubens verpflichtet weiß. Wichtige Entwicklungen wie die Hinwendung zur Narration in den exegetischen Wissenschaften, der Fokus auf narrativen und trinitarischen Theologien in der Systematischen Theologie sowie die Basis eines modellbasierten, kritischen Realismus` im Rahmen des Dialogs zwischen Theologie und Naturwissenschaften fließen in die Hauptthese ein: Gottes Sein selbst ist ein relational-prozedierendes narratives Sein. Die perfekte kommunikative Liebesgeschichte, die Gott ist, schafft, erhält, versöhnt und vollendet die prozessual-relationale Narration der Welt in sich.

The author presents an introduction to Systematic Theology which illustrates the essential relationship between dogmatics and ethics. This relationship is based on the idea that religion and human behavior correlate internally. The aim is to describe Christian existence as a way of living in responsibility before God and with commitment to the common good of society, which provides the necessary external frame of the church as a religious community and its existence in love and hope.
