“As Stan Gale explains, the Apostles Creed gives us a form and framework for declaring and growing in our faith. This ancient standard, familiar to many Christians yet unknown by most, holds the key to a right focus in worship and an expansive walk in the life of faith. Like a docent in an art museum, Stan walks us point by point through the rich textures and spiritual colors of the Creed, expanding on each phrase with sound biblical instruction and typical Gale-ic illustrations from everyday life. Read this book, then read it again reflectively. Not only will you understand the Creed as never before but youll find your worship of God greatly enhanced and illuminated and your walk with Jesus more a source of confidence and joy than youve ever known.”See All

The Apostles' Creed is the most popular summary of the Christian faith. Yet for all its simplicity, the
Creed expresses profound truths about God's redemptive work that are full of liturgical, catechetical, confessional, and missional implications. In this book, author Stanley D. Gale familiarizes modern readers with this ancient statement of belief and its demand for a faith that enlightens the mind, enflames the heart, and engages the will with the wonders of God's saving grace.
