“What a joy to read an account of the Apostles’ Creed that is written with such elegance and understanding. Justo González serves as a wise guide through the thorny issues of the past that gave rise to the statements of the Creed. He shows clearly why the church struggled with these questions and how creedal affirmations are shaped by deep convictions that still have relevance. Readers will learn much from this book about how to confess Christian faith with integrity, both honoring the tradition and creatively appropriating it for a new time.”
—Sarah Heaner Lancaster, Professor of Theology, Methodist Theological School in Ohio
