This book is an excellent tool because of its clarity, brevity, and direct, punchy truthfulness. I picked it up because of a class I'm teaching on the Apostle's Creed. I couldn't stop after reading the chapter on the Apostle's Creed. I wound up blowing though the 192 pages in a couple of days. Holcomb is an excellent author who take what many may see as a boring topic and conveys relevance and importance. I highly recommend this book for pastors, bible study leaders, or curious laity.

About This Item
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.
