Details

The Apostles’ Creed is the oldest summary of Christian beliefs. Though often recited in unison, the phrase, “I believe,” makes the creed a deeply personal profession of faith.

In Affirming the Apostles’ Creed, Packer explains the meaning and implications of each phrase of the creed. Each concise chapter serves as an invitation to dive further into the essentials of the Christian faith via the creed, and concludes with discussion questions and suggestions for further study.

Author Bio

J.I. Packer (1926–), or James Innell Packer, is considered one of the most influential evangelicals in North America. Packer committed his life to Christian service after hearing lectures from C. S. Lewis while studying at Oxford. In the 1950s, Packer was ordained a deacon and priest in the Church of England. Before moving to Canada, he lectured at several schools, including Tyndale Hall in Bristol, Latimer House in Oxford, and Oak Hill Theological College in London.

Packer is currently a professor of theology at Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia, and serves as the honorary president of the Latimer Trust. Packer has written and edited several books: he was the editor of the English Standard Version Bible, the New Bible Dictionary, and the New Dictionary of Theology, and his books include Illustrated Manner and Customs of the Bible and A Quest for Godliness.
