It's not whether you have a creed or not, just which. "No creed but Christ." This claim tries to remove the mess of doctrinal controversy. After all, doesn't everyone know that "doctrine divides"? But would avoiding creeds and confessions really clear away confusion? What do you believe about Jesus? Was he really God? The answers to these important questions make a creed, ...more

I was a little disappointed by this book. Some parts of it were filled with great information, some parts were very elementary in comparison and uninspiring to trudge through. It seemed like the author couldn't decide if they wanted to write a beginners or advanced presentation on the Nicene creed.

Not what I expected. It was an odd mash of academic level material followed by pastoral teaching. Many of the points were redundant. Wish the author would have written for one target audience. Probably would have improved the book in the end.

A very accessible exploration of the Christian faith as presented in the Nicene Creed.

My church's Men's Bible Study has been going through this book and it has been truly beneficial and helpful. The advantage of the book is that it is short, easy-to-read, and concise - this is also perhaps the disadvantage of the book, as it deals with some very weighty issues. As an overview, however, it is immensely helpful.

A good introduction to the Nicene Creed. I especially appreciated his emphasis that the various parts of the Creed should lead to worship and praise.

This book managed to sound both angry and condescending. It is also poorly written (it often has awkward sentence structure and punctuation errors). I didn't make it past the introduction.
