Format: Paperback

Availability: In stock

Quick Overview:

In this accessible guide, Justin Holcomb—a priest, professor, and author—introduces readers to the church’s most important statements of faith over the centuries and shows why those statements still matter today. Discussion questions make Know the Creeds and Councils useful for individual and group study alike.

In every generation, the Christian church must interpret and restate its bedrock beliefs, answering the challenges and concerns of the day. This accessible overview walks readers through centuries of creeds, councils, catechisms, and confessions—not with a dry focus on dates and places, but with an emphasis on the living tradition of Christian belief and why it matters for our lives today.

As a part of the KNOW series, Know the Creeds and Councils is designed for personal study or classroom use, but also for small groups and Sunday schools wanting to more deeply understand the foundations of the faith.

Each chapter covers a key statement of faith and includes a discussion of its historical context, a simple explanation of the statement’s content and key points, reflections on contemporary and ongoing relevance, and discussion questions.

Review by Brandi
Overall Rating
Justin Holcomb explores centuries of creeds, councils, catechisms, and confessions that is behind the tradition of Christianity in his book Know the Creeds and Councils. Each chapter includes key points, historical context, theory explanations, discussion questions, and more. Like the other books in the Know series, Know the Creeds and Councils can be used for a small bible study, personal study, or for the classroom.

Know the Creeds and Councils gives the Christian a deeper understanding of God's purpose for us and our faith. It is a dependable resource for anyone that wants to know the history of Christianity whether believer or nonbeliever. It takes the reader beyond the words of the scripture to more profound meanings and explores the depths of Christian theology while giving the believer a stronger belief in their faith.
