The Faith for Beginners: Understanding the Creeds

Catholic Answers 2006

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The Apostle’s and Nicene Creeds are prayers most Catholics take for granted. We pray them by rote when we say the rosary or go to Mass—often without thinking about or fully understanding what we’re saying. Providing you with this understanding is what the Faith for Beginners is all about. It’s a fascinating romp through the history of the Creeds, closely examining what we believe and why—with reference to the Scripture, the Church Fathers, and Church councils.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
