Why were the early Christians willing to die rather than change a single iota of the creed? Why have the Judeans, Romans, and Persians - among others - seen the Christian creed as a threat to the established social order? In The Creed: Professing the Faith Through the Ages, best-selling author Dr. Scott Hahn recovers and conveys the creed's revolutionary character.
Tracing the development of the first formulations of faith in the early church through later ecumenical councils, The Creed tells the story of how the very profession of our belief in Christ fashions us for heavenly life as we live out our earthly days.

"Scott is great for converts to Catholicism like me."
He so carefully clarifies the creeds of the church and their significance that you are drawn deeper into the faith. He can do that because he, like me, had to struggle through the process of going from Presbyterian minister to Catholic bit by bit. He does this so well. At the end, you are drawn closer to God through the creeds.
"I Loved it!"
I am taking Catikism classes & this book is helping me to understand what they are talking about in class. My family wasn't really religious when I was growing up, so this book has answered a few questions I have had.
"Delightfully written and presented"
Wonderful and much-needed background on early Church and the Creed we pray every Sunday. Recommend!
