This little paperback contains three early Church ecumenical creeds: The Apostles' Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasius Creed; followed by three Reformation-era Confessions: The Heidelberg Catechism, the Belgic Confession, and the Canons of Dort. Brief historical summaries are given for each.

I have been meaning to work through these classic Reformation confessions since reading Carl Trueman's 'The Creedal Imperative.' I enjoyed all of them. They are remarkable documents. It was the Belgic

Although nothing can replace our study and meditation on the Scriptures, I think the reading of these creeds and confessions from time to time can help strengthen for us what we believe and why we believe it. The text of each creed and confession has been updated and modernized, which helps laypeople like myself to understand these better.

" contains the Apostles', Nicene, and Athanasian creeds, as well as translations of the Belgic Confession (1985), Heidelberg Catechism (1975, updated 1988), and Canons of Dort (1986)."

Good to read, It served a purpose. Most Christians wouldn't know what to make of this nowadays. I recommend simply reading and studying the entire Bible repeatedly instead. But this tightens things up nicely.

This is a great little collection of the three classic creeds as well as the "three forms of unity" (Belgic Confession, Heidelberg Catechism, and Canons of Dordt). I've read and re-read this many times.

Although all of these creeds and confessions are available in various forms online, having them in an easily referenceable print volume is nice - the "harmony of the confessions" index at the back is also a useful addition for study and cross-reference.

A collection of the three ecumenical creeds and three reformed standards in the Dutch Reformed Churches. A helpful entryway in reformed theology.

This is a good compilation of historical creeds and confessions. These are all freely available online, but it is nice to have them in a small book to see, underline, write in the margins.
