Do You Believe?
Today we're flooded with opinions and ideas. And they all might be interesting, but are they true? Would you die for them?

Benjamin Myers re-introduces the Apostles' Creed. He helps us to see how difficult and counter-cultural the Creed really is. It doesn't give us sweet, empty words. It's a faith that demands we die so that we might live.

In the early church many converts died for their faith. So they needed to have a good idea what they might die for! Early church pastors and theologians used the Apostles' Creed as the essential guide to the basics of the Christian life.

The Apostles' Creed has united Christians from different times, different places, and different traditions. The truths proclaimed in the Creed are eternal. Will you trust them?

Editorial Reviews:

"Like the Creed, this gem of a book answers the question, 'What do Christians believe?' But because it is sensitive to the unique doubts and fears and cynicism of the 21st century, it winsomely answers the question behind that question: 'How could Christians possibly believe that?' Myers shows as much as he tells, introducing us to the audacious wisdom of ancient voices whose insights prove timely and perennial. This is the catechesis we need for a secular age, overcoming the forgetting we parade as enlightenment."
-James K. A. Smith, Calvin College

"I am very thankful to Ben Myers for his concise, readable commentary on the Apostles' Creed. He joins the refreshing movement that is retrieving the church's long and well-established theological consensus and urging the contemporary church to embrace this wisdom from the past. His book helps today's church confess the Apostles' Creed as essential truth about the triune God and the salvation he offers."
-Gregg R. Allison, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Ben Myers has given readers a precious gift in this short series of meditations on the Apostles' Creed. Like the Church Fathers whose work permeates this book, he treats us to a series of pithy, pertinent reflections that demonstrate theological depth - yet with a surprisingly light touch. Tackling hard matters like gender and God's fatherhood, the virginal conception, the descent into hell, and the persons of the divine Trinity, Myers is alive to both the richness of Christian tradition and the needs of the hour. This is popular theology in the best sense of that term, making accessible the great truths of the Christian faith."
-Oliver D. Crisp, Fuller Theological Seminary

"Ben Myers has written a simple yet elegant and sublime account of the Christian faith according to the Apostles' Creed. Myers works through the creed, word by word, phrase by phrase, and explains its meaning in a way that is both memorable and meditative."
-Michael F. Bird, Ridley College
