WHAT CHRISTIANS OUGHT TO BELIEVE
An Introduction to Christian Doctrine Through
The Apostles’ Creed
By Michael F. Bird
The Apostles’ Creed has been part of the Church for centuries and even forgot by some of the Churches. The Apostles’ Creed is a very important part in exploring and understanding the basic teachings of the Christian faith. This book will help give the creed the attention that it deserves. Michael Bird gives a complete history of the Apostles Creed and an in-depth definition of each part. He has divided the definition into fourteen chapters that will give you a new understanding what the Creed says and why it is importance in the Church. There is a comparison of different creeds and how each one came able, the Church history that may have affected the creed and most important of all he uses scripture to prove the importance of the creed. The author uses some humor in his explanation and some stories that help get his point across. At the end of the book is a section listing the scripture verses for you to use as reference. A list of recommended additional readings is offered at the end of each chapter.
I found the book to be very informative and worth the time to read, even if you know the creed and had memorized it in Church. The book would be a good source for study and discussion groups and a great addition to any library.
