Abstract: 

Miles contends that pluralism in theological education is not different emphases within an unchanging system of thought, but rather different, or new, people participating in "reality- defining theological discourse." This discourse, which requires an awareness of the historicity of texts and participants within a hermeneutics of generosity and suspicion, produces a more capacious and critical rationality than the traditional sort which attempted to transcend difference through competition for one normative interpretation.
