The Apostles' Creed and Nicene Creed unite Christians across denominational lines, laying out the core principles of what we believe. In a learned, compelling manner, world-renowned theologian McGrath assesses the strong and weak points of the analogies, illustrations, and stories the church relies on to convey God's nature. 128 pages, softcover. Westminster John Knox.
In this book, the second in the Heart of Christian Faith series, Alister E. McGrath provides an exploration of how we can best understand God using analogies, illustrations, and stories. This short, accessible guide also provides a pastoral and spiritual consideration of the difference that our belief in God makes to the way in which we think about ourselves and our world. With future volumes to examine other core Christian principles, McGrath's new series will define "mere Christianity" to a new generation for many years to come.
Alister E. McGrath is Professor of Theology, Ministry, and Education and Head of the Centre for Theology, Religion, and Culture at King's College, London. He is the author of several books, including C.S. Lewis: A Life and The Dawkins Delusion.
