Why were the early Christians willing to die to protect 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, bestselling 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.
Endorsements for Scott Hahn’s book:
“In an age when subjectivism trumps all, Scott Hahn’s latest book, which emphasizes the objectivity of Christian doctrine, is a bracing tonic. The leitmotif of this work is that we don’t make the creeds; rather, the creeds make us. Further, Dr. Hahn’s exploration of the meaning of the Nicene Creed provides a splendid introduction to the basics of Christian faith.”— Most Rev. Robert E. Barron, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles
and host of the Catholicism series
“Scott Hahn is one of the most effective teachers of Catholicism today. As Dr. Hahn states, ‘If we don’t get the creed right, we don’t get Jesus right.’ This masterful book enables us to do just that.”— Fr. Peter John Cameron, O.P., Author and Editor of The Magnificat
