Item Description...
Overview
"If there is one statement of the Christian church, it is contained in the Apostles's Creed," writes William Barclay, former Professor of Divinity and Biblical Criticism at Glasgow University. Professor Barclay reminds us, however, that the Creed should be seen not so much as a test and yardstick of orthodoxy, but rather as a symbolic, pictoral, and poetic representation of a truth--a truth that Christians should constantly rethink and restate for themselves. Professor Barclay's insights are particularly valuable at a time when many traditional beliefs are being questions, both by theologians and lay people. He always has managed to bridge the gap between the academic and lay worlds while addressing the most profound issues of the Christian faith.

Professor Barclay reminds us, however, that the Creed should be seen not so much as a test and yardstick of orthodoxy, but rather as a symbolic, pictorial and poetic representation of a truth--a truth that Christian should constantly rethink and restate for themselves.

Barclay's insights are particularly valuable at a time when many traditional beliefs are being questioned, both by theologians and lay people. He manages to bridge the gap between the academic and lay worlds while addressing the most profound issues of the Christian faith.

The William Barclay Library is a collection of books addressing the great issues of the Christian faith. As one of the world's most widely read interpreters of the Bible and its meaning, William Barclay devoted his life to helping people become more faithful disciples of Jesus Christ.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Half of God  Aug 24, 2006
Barclay only addresses one of God's attributes in his study of the Apostle's creed, God is Love. He cheapens the meaning of Christ's death by setting Him up as some ultimate example of love instead of Almighty God redeeming a people for Himself. Barclay completely misses the point of Christ's death, that of saving us from the wrath of God. Barclay's study is not grounded in the truth.
 
Chiristian perceptions in a polictical and scocial context  Jan 31, 2004
Barclay did an outstanding outline of the Apostle's Creed. Line by line he revealed a new understanding of the Creed based on the historical context of the time in which Christ lived. Using Greek translations, Barclay shed new insight as to what the true meaning of what was Christ's teachings were and how centuries of translations obscured or lost those teachings. After reading this book I walked away with a tremendous respect for what Christ really was trying to say, "Look and you will find." The caviot is to look spiritually within your own heart and there you will find Christ and what he was trying to convey.
David Chilton
 
Excellent historical overview; great pastoral guidance.  May 13, 2002
This book provides a helpful historical study of the ancient Apostles' Creed. More importantly, it provides expert and loving pastoral guidance on the meaning of each passage in this important summary of the Christian faith.

Dr. Barclay views God primarily in terms of a loving and forgiving father--in sharp contrast with those who see God more in terms of a triumphant king bent on destroying his enemies. Dr. Barclay's view gave him a wonderful perspective on profound issues such as the foregiveness of sin and the meaning of Jesus' death on the cross. Dr. Barclay dares to hope that God will ultimately restore all of humankind to Himself. And rather than dying instead of us on the cross (because an offended and vengeful God demands that somebody die as a punishment for sin), Dr. Barclay believes the cross was instead necessary to show humanity that there is no point beyond which the love of our foregiving God will not go.

The book provides an articulate, beautiful, and believable summary of Dr. Barclay's view of the Christain faith based on a God who "is love." I highly recommend it.

 
Great Presentation of the Creed for all Christians  Mar 3, 2001
Barclay does a complete and through review of each line of the creed. Beginning with "I believe", the writer explores the development of each phrase of the creed in simple language for the beginner as well as the student of theology. He explains the meaning of each phrase, why it is included, and the culture in which the phrase developed. The different interpretations of the individual phrases are fully explored along with the defense of each. This is a great book for those preparing for baptism or confirmation as well as a good book for a Christian Formation Class. I used this as a theology resource in preparation for the Diaconate in the Episcopal Church. The only shortcoming is the lack of inclusive language; otherwise, I would rate it five star.
