    Basic information on The Apostles Creed

    My church regularly preaches through the Apostles' Creed every other year It's a way of resisting the theological attenuation typical of late modern evangelical culture in America a resistance which is especially urgent in our locale which is post Christian and biblically illiterate Our next preach through is coming up in a couple of months so I was delighted to get the chance to enjoy this exposition of the creedI've been a regular listener to Dr Mohler for many years He is president of the seminary where I received my PhD and I've listened to his podcasts as well as occasional talks he's given at my church The content of the book is exactly what I would expect from him a rich precise and accessible introduction to the basic Christian doctrines surveyed in the creed I thought about a third of the way into the book that it needs to be the new volume I give away to new Christians as their first introduction to systematic theology and having read to the end I have not changed my mindGrowing up Baptist we didn't really go in for creeds no creed but the Bible but Mohler has thoroughly convinced me of the value of this historic memorizable prayable summary of all that the Bible teaches I highly recommend it especially for growing believers who are hungering to have a deeply rooted faith

    Mohler provides a biblical and deep theological walk through of the Apostle’s Creed He also proves the point as to why it is so important that Christians affirm creeds such as this one I have not read much by Mohler but in this book he is a fabulous story teller as he gives personal anecdotes from his life that revolve around different aspects of the creed I would recommend this to anyone who struggles with finding the importance of historic creeds of the Christian faith

    First sentence It began as an assignment It ended as a milestone in my Christian lifeThis book is a great choice for new Christians or any Christian looking for a refresher course on the basics of the Christian faith Let's be honest every Christian needs to be preaching the gospel to themselves daily because we need freuent remindersEach chapter focuses on a specific phrase of the Apostles' Creed When you break the Apostles' Creed into short phrases and actually take the time to unpack what is being said and how significant it is to the faith then you realize just how much theology is packed into itMohler goes one step further He not only helps readers unpack the theology of the creed but he thoughtfully examines the times What does it mean for the church if this part of the creed is not lived out is not upheld is not proclaimed or taughtHe begins the book by answering the uestion WHY Why is it important for Christians to know and understand the Apostles' Creed Why study the creed What benefits do Christians gain from understanding an ancient creed One reason Mohler gives is that the Apostles' Creed helps every believer be able to discern true from false That isn't his only reason mind you But it is a crucial one in these days and times If you don't have a solid foundation deep roots if you will then you won't recognize false teachers and false doctrines when you encounter them And you will encounter them They are abundantMohler actually gives SEVEN reasons why the creed is useful and necessary1 Creeds define the truth Jesus Christ told his disciples “And you will know the truth and the truth will set you free” John 832 We must study the creeds of the faith so long as they rightly espouse the Scriptures because they outline the truths of our faith The truth sets the people of God free from sin corruption and a world under the despair of sin The truth ushers in an eternal hope in the glorious splendor of God and his gospel to mankind2 Creeds correct error The reality of truth presupposes the existence of error In the present age however we find a generation perhaps for the first time that objects to the existence of truth The church however has understood since its founding that heresy and false teaching exist and that these are horrible dangers to the people of God Indeed no error presents a greater danger to the church and the world than theological error Heresy the denial of a doctrine central to Christianity departs from the truth and thus has eternal conseuences3 Creeds provide rules and standards for God’s people The Apostles’ Creed functions as a guardrail for our teaching and instruction Indeed the creeds protect teachers from stumbling into error by providing a rule to follow and boundaries for healthy theological discussion and development One of the most important functions of the Apostles’ Creed like all faithful creeds is that it helps the church to teach and prepare new believers for faithfulness and maturity in the faith of the church New believers in the early church were often asked to affirm the lines of the Apostles’ Creed one by one affirming their belief and confession of the true Christian faith4 Creeds teach the church how to worship and confess the faith The Apostles’ Creed delineates the most glorious and splendid truths of the Christian faith It naturally ushers our souls into heartfelt worship and praise of God The creeds therefore guide the church in worship and contain the most precious truths through which we can worship God and rightly praise his name In corporate worship voices converge so that I believe becomes we believe joining together all believers both the living and those already with Christ5 Creeds connect us to the faith of our fathers6 Creeds summarize the faith Those who would argue for no creed but the Bible have forfeited a great gift in maintaining biblical Christianity This dubious position fails to understand the heart behind creeds and confessions These documents do not seek to replace Scripture Instead they accurately seek to summarize its content into succinct statements in order to euip Christians with brief yet crucial distillations of the faith7 Creeds define true Christian unity Finally the affirmations of the Apostles’ Creed weave a fabric that knits all Christians together in the genuine bonds of unity Statements of faith and the creeds of the church unite believers from all ages to the unchanging truth of God’s revelation True Christian unity is unity in the truth revealed by Christ not unity at the expense of truth as is becoming all too commonIt would be easy for Christians to dismiss the Apostles' Creed not because they reject the truths it contains but because of their familiarity with it It is so familiar so routine that it is easy to recite it without engaging the heart and mind It can be recited mindlessly But if read slowly thoughtfully it can be an act of worship God is GOODI loved reading this one All of the chapters were good and solid A few of the chapters really spoke to me and got me thinking For example the chapter on Christ's Ascension I loved loved loved the chapter on the Holy Spirit

    “This is the faith of the Christian church This is the faith of the people of God This is the faith of those purchased by the blood of Christ This is the faith once for so given to Christ’s church” 200 When it comes to biblical theology there is so much than what it’s said in the Apostle’s Creed But when it comes to the truths necessary for salvation both past present and future there definitely is not less Contained in these historic words are the truths necessary for one to be rescued from sin and hell and saved to life everlasting with the Lord Jesus Christ I appreciate Mohler’s clear and concise explanation phrase by phrase of this tremendous summary of the Christian faith

  6. says:

    Al Mohler uses the framework of the Apostles' Creed to not only offer an explanation of the creed itself but also of Christianity as a whole He does so in a concise but altogether thorough manner offering a full and complete picture of the basic tenets of the Christian faith A great manual for anyone seeking to understand what makes a true church

  7. says:

    Solid book One I intend to borrow from for years to come This book and Wilson’s book have made me reconsider my courses and how I should make the Apostle’s Creed of a focus for my classes as a means to point to God’s Word Highest recommendation

  8. says:

    Minus a couple points of doctrine this would be a good book to use in discipleship with someone about the basic theology of Christianity

  9. says:

    A line by line study of the doctrines expressed by the Apostles' creed This was excellent and would make a great teaching series

  10. says:

    A great explanation clause by clause but not enough on the historical development or impact which is what I was really looking for
