Publisher's Summary

Why were the early Christians willing to die rather than change a single iota of the creed? Why have the Judeans, Romans, and Persians - among others - seen the Christian creed as a threat to the established social order? In The Creed: Professing the Faith Through the Ages, best-selling author Dr. Scott Hahn recovers and conveys the creed's revolutionary character.

Tracing the development of the first formulations of faith in the early church through later ecumenical councils, The Creed tells the story of how the very profession of our belief in Christ fashions us for heavenly life as we live out our earthly days.

Approachable, detailed and enlightening

Scott Hahn does an excellent job of showing how the whole of Salvation History is faithfully contained in the Creed. A must for anyone who is serious about understanding the faith of the Church founded by Jesus Christ and handed down through the apostles.

I Loved it!

I am taking Catikism classes & this book is helping me to understand what they are talking about in class. My family wasn't really religious when I was growing up, so this book has answered a few questions I have had.

Scott is great for converts to Catholicism like me.

He so carefully clarifies the creeds of the church and their significance that you are drawn deeper into the faith. He can do that because he, like me, had to struggle through the process of going from Presbyterian minister to Catholic bit by bit. He does this so well. At the end, you are drawn closer to God through the creeds.

Good Scott Hahn but tiny chapters, tiny book, big

Some good information but like a not so good chowder, too many potatoes, little meat.

Light on history, great on doctrine/presentation

A great introduction to the traditional Christian creeds, and some historical context. Probably ideal for someone who heard the cterds growing up but never had their depth explained.

I was hoping for more of the story of how the creeds came to be in a historical sense, but I still greatly enjoyed listening to Dr. Hahn.

Even when his writing didn't quite align with my expectations, I still felt like it was worth my while to listen.

I Believe

Scott Hahn provides a great insight not only to the origins of the creed but also to the meaning of the creed and all in an easily understandable manner. Well worthwhile.
