THE 105: Engaging Ultimate Questions: Religion, Faith, and Ethics (Prendergast): Quest for the Living God suggestions

Researching Quest for the Living God

Later in the term, your groups will be reading and presenting on chapters from the book: Quest for the Living God: Mapping Frontiers in the Theology of God. Your group will need to update the information on the topic covered by your chapter (the book was published in 2007).

Each chapter focuses on a unique topic. Read through the chapter, and make note of words and phrases that appear frequently and describe the main idea of that chapter (also see Quest for the Living God Chapter Topics box on this page).

Use the Search for Books search box to search the library catalog for topics you have identified for your chapter:
