Publisher's Description

Demonstrating a deep understanding of scripture, church history, doctrine, and pastoral work, this exploration takes a fresh look at a prayer many Catholics commonly zip past while saying the Rosary: the Apostle's Creed. The study brushes the centuries of dust off each of the elements in which churchgoers intone “we believe” without pausing to reflect on the prayer's meaning, confronting this overlooked component of mass in a zingy, Chestertonian style that will appeal to discerning readers of popular theology and apologetics. Delving into the startling statements that this creed makes about the nature of God, man, and the universe, this guide once again reminds Catholics how to be surprised and challenged by the paradoxical beauty that the Christian faith finds in everyday life.

Editorial Reviews

"In this exciting book, Longenecker follows in the imaginative footsteps of Chesterton and Lewis. He sees and seizes the thrill of truth with insights of pyrotechnic brilliance."  —Joseph Pearce, author, Through Shakespeare's Eyes
"Here is orthodoxy as heavy as the universe, made to dance like the universe. Reading this is like coming upon old Augustine dressed up like St Francis."  —Thomas Howard, author, Evangelical is Not Enough
"An engaging and energetic book that explains the Apostle's Creed to the curious, the skeptical, and the puzzled. It uses a popular, but learned, mixture of references to philosophy, theology, biology, history, pop culture, and great literature, drawing on everyone from atheist Richard Dawkins and novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky to saint Thomas Aquinas and our Lord Jesus Christ."  —Carl E. Olson, editor, Ignatius Insight
