Description

When we recite and affirm the words of a creedal statement such as the 'we believe' of the Nicene Creed, exactly what are we doing? What are we affirming? What are we denying? How did we reach these specific 'yeses,' each of which logically demands certain specific denials? What characterizes the relationship between a creed, such as that of Nicaea, and the Bible itself? What kinds of people do we need to be to make sense of the creeds, how they were formed, the relevance for the church today, and for our understanding of the Scripture? Christopher Hall explores and responds to these questions.
