Publishers Description

The Apostles' Creed is the oldest, most beautiful succinct summary of Christian beliefs. Though often recited in unison during worship services, the creed begins with the phrase "I believe," making it a deeply personal profession of faith. But when was the last time you examined it closely?

In Affirming the Apostles' Creed, an excerpt from Growing in Christ, noted Bible scholar and author J. I. Packer explains the meaning and implications of each phrase of this great creed. Each concise chapter serves as an invitation to dive further into the creed-and as a result, into the essentials of the Christian faith-by concluding with discussion questions and Bible passages for further study.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Very little affirming - much attacking.  Oct 21, 2009
The author spends a large number pages attacking early Christan sects. Refering to groups of early Christians as "sheep stealing Gnostics" while quoting Old Testament books and CS Lewis in the same paragraph does little to inspire confidence in the author's ability to teach and lead.

A book that focuses on attacking other understandings of Christ's teachings does nothing but further place modern Christianity in a hateful, short-sighted light.
 
Devotional Study of the Apostles' Creed. Well Done!  May 30, 2009
I read this book to my wife almost every morning before she went to work. We really liked it. J.I Packer walks us through the Apostles' Creed phrase by phrase. He says that the Creed was originally written in Latin, and that "I believe in God the Father" translate a phrase that literally means "I am believing INTO God." It conveys the idea of total dependence.

In the chapter about the only begotten Son, Packer says that the phrase literally means "one of a kind Son." The expression "He descended into hell" means that Christ went down into the netherworld after He died on the cross and proclaimed victory over the powers of darkness to the disobedient angels in prison - see 1 Peter 3:19-22.

Believing in the Holy Spirit means trusting in Him as our advocate, counselor, guide, and helper. and as the One who highlights and glorifies Jesus.

The communion of saints refers to the fellowship we can have with believers in this life and in the common bond we have with the saints of all times.

This is a great little book! The sentences are little long and cumbersome at times. Perhaps a good editor could have tightened up the screws. But this is a minor thing because we really enjoyed this book.
