Creeds and Confessions

The history of the Church is filled with times of great theological debate. From the beginning, the Church has had to come together in light of theological controversy and form a body of teaching that would be universally accepted and practiced amongst all who confess Christ as Lord. This collection of Historic Creeds and Confessions contain the outworkings of godly men who came together and drafted what they considered to be the heart of Biblical truth.

The documents contained in the Historic Creeds and Confessions are foundational to basic Christian doctrine and are, for the most part, claimed across denominational boundaries. These classic documents are not simply of historical value, but they are immensely valuable for believers today to read, consider, and understand. They deal in real terms with what it means to live as a Christian. They struggle to quantify complex and confusing ideas in clear, undeniable terminology.

    This is good but I personally dislike the old English translation ("Thee" / "Thou" etc.). I am surprised Logos does not offer a modern translation of the three forms of unity (Canons, Heidelberg, Belgic). I would buy it if they had it!

    This is concise listing of the historic creeds and confessions (particularly Reformed) of the Christian faith. No frills, only thrills.

    Creeds and confessions are the lost art of historic Christianity that will make its come-back soon enough. This volume is a great resource seeing to that end.

    Any resource which purports to be about the historic creeds and confessions but leaves out the Augustana and Luther's Small Catechism is terribly lacking in reach and in context.
