Product Description

"If there is one statement of the Christian church, it is contained in the Apostles's Creed," writes William Barclay, former Professor of Divinity and Biblical Criticism at Glasgow University. Professor Barclay reminds us, however, that the Creed should be seen not so much as a test and yardstick of orthodoxy, but rather as a symbolic, pictoral, and poetic representation of a truth--a truth that Christians should constantly rethink and restate for themselves. Professor Barclay's insights are particularly valuable at a time when many traditional beliefs are being questions, both by theologians and lay people. He always has managed to bridge the gap between the academic and lay worlds while addressing the most profound issues of the Christian faith.
