  • Summary:

    From the Introduction:
    If a nonbeliever asked you what you believe, what would you say? A good place to start would be the Apostles’ Creed. All Christians share the creed, we say it together, many of us weekly, and it summarizes the faith in a few words. Even as we recite these well-worn words, however, we may admit that we don’t understand them well enough to answer the questions that would certainly come from the non-believer. The language of the creed sometimes sounds foreign and antiquated. …So we study the creed, if only to understand its vocabulary, to clarify just what is being claimed, and to learn what it might say.
