KIRKUS REVIEW

This study of the Apostle's Creed is based upon a series of sermons originally delivered to college students. It deals with some questions raised in the modern mind by the phrasing of this ancient creed. It reconstructs the religious values expressed by this symbol of faith in times past and today. The author, therefore, gives to us a brief history of the development of Christian thought as well as an outline of the salient aspects of the faith today. The author states that he seeks to avoid two extremes of modernism and fundamentalism and indicates that his liberal position will please neither camp. But Christians who are often puzzled when asked to repeat the Apostles' Creed will find new meaning in the ancient phrases after reading this carefully wrought and easily read study of the historic document.
