  • Thomas P. Rausch carefully explores the controversies that led to the development of the Apostles Creed and thereby brings it to life for modern readers. More importantly, he maintains that the Creed is most fully alive when those who profess it do so as a personal response to their baptismal call. Attentive to the ways in which the language of the Creed is relevant to the experience of twenty-first-century Christians, he leads us to understand what Pope Benedict meant when he said the Creed is "a tiny summa in which everything essential is expressed." With Rauschs guidance, readers will confess those essentials with greater conviction and appreciation.
