Written in the belief that it is important for Christians to love God with the mind as well as the heart, soul and strength, this book clearly and concisely explains the Apostle's Creed for anyone who wishes a fuller understanding of what Christians believe. The Apostle's Creed dates from the very early times of the Church. Legend has it that the Apostles wrote this creed on the tenth day after Christ's ascension into heaven. That is not the case, though the name stuck. After briefly describing the historical origins and present day importance of the Creed, C.E.B. Cransfield discusses each line in language that is precise, straightforward and simple, yet not condescending. He draws heavily on Scripture to explain the Creed and stresses the importance of faith being both individual and collective, continually showing how this ancient Creed's affirmation relate in practical ways to life in today's world.
