Summary and Info
Noted Bible scholar J. I. Packer examines each phrase of the Apostles' Creed, inviting readers to dive further into the essentials of the Christian faith. The Apostles' Creed is the oldest and most beautifully succinct summary of Christian beliefs. Though often recited in unison during worship services, this great creed begins with the phrase "I believe," making it a deeply personal profession of faith. Thus it deserves personal attention and examination from every believer. In Affirming the Apostles' Creed (an excerpt from Growing in Christ) noted Bible scholar and author J. I. Packer explains the meaning and implications of each phrase of this creed. Both theologically sound and practical, this book provides Christians with a starting point for understanding and applying the basic tenets of Christianity. Each concise chapter serves as an invitation to dive further into the creed-and as a result, into the essentials of the Christian faith-by concluding with discussion questions and Bible passages for further study.
