Creed is a call for the church to return to serious discipleship. Focusing on the Scriptures and ancient creeds, Winfield Bevins challenges us to rediscover our historical roots and practices for discipleship.

Ed Stetzer, president, LifeWay Research

With wisdom, Winfield Bevins places before us the ancient foundations of the Apostles’ Creed, the Ten Commandments, and the Lord’s Prayer. Books like Creed need to take their place and have their effect.

—Todd Hunter, bishop, Anglican Church in North America

In a time of spiritual homelessness, Creed opens the door to the historic Christian faith. If you’re tired of your own designer religion and open to something new but also old, tested, and enduring, Creed is the book for you.

Ray Ortlund, lead pastor, Immanuel Church, Nashville, TN

Creed is a well-written book with the goal of helping Christians connect to the historic, orthodox faith. It accomplished that goal in a superb fashion. You will be edified and encouraged by this work on the Apostles’ Creed, the 10 Commandments, and the Lord’s Prayer. You will rejoice in the ‘faith once delivered to the saints’ that is embodied in these classics of Christianity.

Daniel Akin, president, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

We live in a culture marked by increasing biblical illiteracy in and out of the church. Winfield Bevins has taken timeless truth and shown how it can be used in disciple-making in a fresh and significant manner. I commend this book to you as a fantastic tool for church leaders to assist in the most basic of Christ’s commands, His commission to make disciples.

Alvin L. Reid, professor of evangelism and student ministry, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

As I read through Creed, I continued to say to myself, ‘We need to use this book in our church.’ Winfield Bevins has put together an eminently helpful guide to the basics of Christian faith. But there’s more: Creed soaks each teaching in vintage Christianity through the use of historic vignettes and an accessible use of creeds. This approach connects twenty-first-century disciples to their vintage faith. Use it, especially for new disciples!

Jonathan Dodson, lead pastor, Austin City Life Church

Winfield says there is nothing new in his book. Good! That is exactly the point he wants us to get. What he correctly calls the ‘historic tools of discipleship’ have been with us and stood the test of time for good reasons. Of course they can just become words and ceremony, but if we follow Winfield’s guidance and let them go deep into our souls as individuals and churches, they form the foundation on which to build a healthy spiritual life. This is a welcome refresher course from a pastor whose passion is the discipleship of God’s people.
