Description - Know the Creeds and Councils by Justin S. Holcomb


One of the initial titles in Zondervan's new KNOW series, Know the Creeds and Councils provides an accessible and relevant overview of Christianity's most significant statements of faith. Designed for both individual and group study.

In every generation, the Christian church must interpret and restate its bedrock beliefs, answering the challenges and concerns of the day. This accessible overview walks readers through centuries of creeds, councils, catechisms, and confessions-not with a dry focus on dates and places, but with an emphasis on the living tradition of Christian belief and why it matters for our lives today.

As a part of the KNOW series, Know the Creeds and Councils is designed for personal study or classroom use, but also for small groups and Sunday schools wanting to more deeply understand the foundations of the faith.

Each chapter covers a key statement of faith and includes a discussion of its historical context, a simple explanation of the statement's content and key points, reflections on contemporary and ongoing relevance, and discussion questions.

Buy Know the Creeds and Councils by Justin S. Holcomb from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
