THE CREED: PROFESSING THE FAITH THROUGH THE AGES
Why were the early Christians willing to die to protect even 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? Dr. Scott Hahn recovers and conveys the creed's revolutionary character. By tracing the development of the first formulations of faith in the early Chruch through later ecumenical councils, he 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.
