Exploring the startling statements that the Apostles’ creed makes about the nature of God, man, and the universe, this guide reveals the challenge and paradoxical beauty of a Christian cornerstone. A fresh, appealing examination of an often overlooked prayer.
Penned by a prominent convert from Anglicanism to Catholicism, this lively book seizes on the scintillating relevance of the Apostles creed, amplifying every word so that the true meaning of the prayer rings in our ears and resounds in our hearts. Longenecker inspires a faith that encourages action and gets us to question our assumptions and test our truths, not sleep in our easy chairs.
With his profound understanding of scripture, history, doctrine, parish life, and the human longing for truth, Fr. Dwight Longenecker brushes the dust of centuries off the prayer that begins with the radical statement, “I believe.” An engaging second look at the Christian faith for discerning readers.
