Michele MorinWarren, MaineAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5The Apostle's Creed for the 21st CenturyApril 19, 2019Michele MorinWarren, MaineAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Whether from a desire for "authenticity" or from a mistrust of formal statements of faith, the use of creeds has fallen out of favor in many evangelical churches. However, in The Apostles' Creed: Discovering Authentic Christianity in an Age of Counterfeits, Albert Mohlerpresident of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and TGC Council memberargues that creedal statements are, indeed, relevant for "such a time as this." As the subtitle suggests, when we employ those ancient words in our worship, we have captured "authenticity" at its best. The Apostles' Creed frames the essence of Christianity, for it "expresses and summarizes the faith given by Christ to the apostles" (xiv).
Internalizing majestic statements of belief enriches our more spontaneous expressions of worship with infusions of known theological truth. Mohler explains the Apostles' Creed line by line, phrase by phrase, applying its truth to life on the ground in the 21st century. The effect is a well-organized, timely presentation of truth.
Many thanks to Thomas Nelson for providing this book to facilitate my review, which is, of course, offered freely and with honesty.
