A clear exposition of the Apostles' Creed by some of the world's leading scholars and preachers. A Creed in slow motion.
Doctrinal preaching has fallen on hard times in recent years. Exploring and Proclaiming the Apostles' Creed seeks to stimulate renewed interest in - and provide useful models of - Christian proclamation that is truly rooted in the central tenets of the faith. Using the Apostles' Creed as a template for doctrinal, confessional preaching, this book draws together an ecumenical cast of respected biblical scholars and preachers who explain the creed and demonstrate its preaching possibilities. Each of the book's fifteen chapters consists of an essay that explores and illuminates one of the creed's articles of faith, followed by a scintillating sermon that models how that article can be preached as good news today
"It is intended to revive the preaching of Christian doctrine by providing, first, an exposition of what to say and, then, an example of how to say it. To achieve this, the editor has assembled a most distinguished international team of thirty scholars and preachers...This is a substantial book which will amply repay some hard work, and which deserves to make a significant contribution to the revival of good preaching of Christian doctrine."
"...this collection of essays and sermons is very much better than the usual run of things...The essays generally maintain a good standard of scholarly integrity...There is a great deal of food for thought in this volume, and people looking for something to do in Lent or in a teaching course in their church, would be well advised to take a look in this book for ideas. The Apostles' Creed has been brought back to life in its pages, and the presentation offered here is one which will stimulate and inspire any number of pastors and lay people looking for solid meat for their sermon diet."
Gerald Bray, Churchman, Spring 2007
Each chapter in this book includes an essay and a sermon to assist exploration and proclamation of the Apostle's Creed. The authors identify biblical sources, trace how the doctrine was perceived and interpreted in Christian history, and reflect theologically on the confession for our turbulent times.
