Product Description

Throughout history, Christians have found the summary of their faith in the three ancient creeds. The God We Proclaim explores that faith as it is found in the shortest of them: the Apostles' Creed. The contributors are among Britain's foremost Christian communicators and teachers.

Written with an infectious enthusiasm for theology, The God We Proclaim is ideal for anyone seeking to understand the Christian faith, either individually, or in a church or student study group. It is based on a set of sermons delivered in the chapel of Jesus College, Cambridge, which surveyed the foundations of Christianity.

Dorothy L. Sayers (1893-1957) wrote in her essay "The Dogma is the Drama" that people assume that if churches are empty it is because preachers "insist too much upon doctrine," or "dull dogma" as they disapprovingly call it. Sayers knew that the opposite is true. "It is the neglect of dogma that makes for dullness. The Christian faith is the most exciting drama that ever staggered the imagination of man--and the dogma is the drama."

Publisher's Description

Throughout history, Christians have found the summary of their faith in the three ancient creeds. The God We Proclaim explores that faith as it is found in the shortest of them: the Apostles' Creed. The contributors are among Britain's foremost Christian communicators and teachers. Written with an infectious enthusiasm for theology, The God We Proclaim is ideal for anyone seeking to understand the Christian faith, either individually, or in a church or student study group. It is based on a set of sermons delivered in the chapel of Jesus College, Cambridge, which surveyed the foundations of Christianity. Dorothy L. Sayers (1893-1957) wrote in her essay ""The Dogma is the Drama"" that people assume that if churches are empty it is because preachers ""insist too much upon doctrine,"" or ""dull dogma"" as they disapprovingly call it. Sayers knew that the opposite is true. ""It is the neglect of dogma that makes for dullness. The Christian faith is the most exciting drama that ever staggered the imagination of man--and the dogma is the drama."" ""Clear-eyed, creative, and stunningly insightful, these sermons on the creed will draw readers to a deeper and finer understanding, certainly, but for some there will also be the luminous discovery that the creed itself becomes a mysterious doorway into prayer, into an encounter with the mystery to which the words bear witness."" --Mark McIntosh, Professor, Loyola University Chicago ""As Dean of Jesus College, John Hughes proved to be someone whom many wanted to befriend recognizing the faith on which his life was built. Focusing on the Creed, this sermon series gives an inspiring insight into that faith, being broad enough to encompass the main tenets of belief but with gem after gem of deep insight. The book is a source of great joy and fulfillment."" --Ian White, Master, Jesus College, Cambridge John Hughes was a fellow of Jesus College, Cambridge, and the dean of the college chapel until his death in 2014 at the age of thirty-five. Widely regarded as one of the principal theological minds of his generation, he was the author of The End of Work (2007). His collected essays have been published as Graced Life: The Writings of John Hughes, edited by Matthew Bullimore (2016). Andrew Davison is the Starbridge Lecturer in Theology and Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge, a fellow of Corpus Christi College, and the Canon Philosopher of St. Albans Cathedral. He is the author of several books, including Why Sacraments? (2013), The Love of Wisdom: An Introduction to Philosophy for Theologians (2013), and Blessing (2014), and the editor of Imaginative Apologetics (2011).
