Dan Currier5 Stars Out Of 5October 21, 2007Dan CurrierPelikans Credo enables the origins and significance of Creeds and Confessions to be easily seen. The constant movement of the Church as its fathers, doctors, theologians and heroes maintain and propel it under the power of Christ with the guidance of the Holy Spirit in line with the apostolic tradition and the need to overcome historical adversity, has been made known as the varying traditions articulate its ongoing significance for those within and without, in the form of Creeds and Confessions. Credo serves as an invaluable introduction to the development of Christian thought as it has unfolded within Christendom. Through this text the relevance of Creeds and Confessions is refreshed as dangers and shortfalls are made known and they are positioned to be devices of strength and unity with ongoing value and significance for the Church and personal belief.
