The Apostles’ Creed
God’s Special Revelation

Alan Robinson

Author text to follow


“Not long ago the Apostles’ Creed was known by heart by a great number of people. It is an ancient, succinct summary of Christian belief, expressing the great fundamentals of faith relating to God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Alan Robinson’s phrase-by-phrase commentary offers a comprehensive analysis, rich in bible references and application to the modern world. It will refresh those who have known and loved this statement of faith for many years, and will enlighten the newcomer equally. May this book serve to renew the use of the Apostles’ Creed in contemporary worship, in personal devotion and in studies which introduce the faith and apply it to daily life.” The Right Reverend Jonathan Bailey, Bishop of Derby

“In the body of this book Alan Robinson explains and discusses the Apostles' Creed by breaking the text down into twenty-two short chapters (‘I believe in God’; ‘the Father Almighty’; ‘Creator of heaven and earth’; etc.). Questions for discussion are provided at the end of each chapter, and an ‘other activities’ section is included at the end of the book.” New Testament Abstracts

Ideal for use by Christian congregations
Biblical sources for the Creed are explored and their significance for the reader in today’s world is explained
The nature of God as Father and Creator of the universe is described in relation to human perceptions of these concepts
The mystery of Jesus Christ as a member of the Trinity, and the Person of the Holy Spirit, is explored both in biblical terms and in relation to the modern world
The universal Church and the continuation of the life of individuals within the communion of saints is discussed in an easily comprehensible way

Comprehensive, but using simple language, this book will be of interest to all Christian denominations. The Apostles’ Creed is discussed and explained by devoting a chapter to each article or phrase of the creed. The first chapter, on belief in God, sets the book in a multicultural context. All chapters contain topics for discussion and activities which may be used by church groups.
