Reconsidering the Apostles' Creed

Professing Contemporary Faith Through Ancient Words
  • By Brand Eaton
Product Description

What does it mean to say "I believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth?" The Apostles' Creed may be commonplace in many Christian services today, but to some, it is no more than just the repetition of words. Brand Eaton asks what it means to say these words, in order to have his audience reevaluate the creed that they say each week. Taking this into consideration truly reflects whether this creed reflects our daily actions, and how that can improve our relationship with God.

Some traditional Christians may see the title of this book and wonder, "Is there something wrong with the creed? Are there some hidden messages between the lines?" However, Eaton's reasoning behind his review is not to change the creed, but rather to take its words to heart. He believes "This [The first line of the Creed] has real implications for the daily exercise of our faith in stewarding the Earth and its resources... In whatever way we can tread more lightly and more respectfully on the earth, honoring that God loves all that God has made as good, the more we live in accord with the creed's profession of belief in God as the creator of heaven and earth." If God's creative will has placed us on this earth, Eaton continues, in what ways are we honoring and respecting the one who brought us into existence?

Whatever your education or familiarity with the Apostles' Creed, Eaton invites you to take a step back from the repetition, from the words, and carefully consider your answers to each of the questions that he poses. With every phrase, Eaton helps us strengthen our faith and grow closer to God.
