I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth… The Creed is one of the foundational statements of the Christian faith. It exists in a number of forms, and has been in use since the fourth century, and continues to be prayed privately and recited corporately in all major Christian denominations today.
The Creed in Slow Motion is a deep dive into this rich doctrinal text. Phrase by phrase, and even word by word, we are transported through the key doctrines of the faith to help us stop and savour each of its components. We consider what we assent to when we recite each phrase – from the meaning of the begotten Son, to the incarnate Virgin birth, and the affirmation of the living Spirit – and how these spoken truths express the bedrock of Christian Faith.
Written in forty-five short chapters, in a lively and approachable volume, this is the perfect gift for everyday Christians who want to dig into the faith to resurface with a new understanding and renewed conviction.
