"In 1876, this three volume collection of cross-denominational creeds was deemed by its publisher a "symbolical library" well worth visiting. In Volume I, Schaff introduces the creeds by providing general information regarding their origin, value, authority, and classification. First, Schaff presents the Ecumenical Creeds, which contain the most basic doctrines of the Trinity and the Incarnation. These fundamental creeds are the Apostle's Creed, the Nicene Creed, the Creed of Chalcedon, and the Athanasian Creed. Next, Schaff considers the Greek and Roman Creeds, which differ significantly from Protestantism and from each other. Schaff then explores the Evangelical Protestant Creeds, which emerged around the time of the Reformation and are divided into two camps, Reformed and Lutheran. Schaff concludes by giving some attention to the Creeds of Modern Evangelical Denominations. In Volume II of Creeds of Christendom, Schaff reproduces the Scripture Confessions as well as the Ante-Nicene and Nicene Rules of Faith and Baptismal Creeds. He also presents the Orthodox Confession of the Eastern Church alongside the longer catechism of the Orthodox Eastern Church. Finally, Schaff concludes with the Old Catholic Union Creeds, which include several encyclical letters from the 19th and 20th century papacies. Schaff spends several sections comparing different forms of the Apostle's Creed, which range from the Old Roman African form to the Old Italian form. Schaff even provides an extensive table displaying the gradual formation of the Creed from 200AD to 750AD. This book is an excellent resource for comparative analysis, as Schaff provides the documents in their original languages alongside their English translations. Volume III is dedicated to the Lutheran, Anglican, Calvinistic, and later Protestant Confessions of Faith. Schaff's third volume is the first publication to compile the Modern Protestant Creeds, a rare group of documents containing the Congregational, Baptist, and Presbyterian Confessions. It also includes the Quaker Confession, the Easter Litany of the Moravians, and the Methodist Articles of Religion. This book is an excellent resource for comparative analysis, as Schaff provides the documents in their original languages alongside their English translations. Through Creeds of Christendom, Schaff aims to bring understanding to those who adhere to different creeds. He wisely reminds us that despite varying Christian denominations, Christ always remains at the center of the creeds" -- Amazon.com

This series is the first modern edition of the main body of Mercersburg theology. It includes all the important works, large and small, of John W. Nevin, Philip Schaff, and lesser Mercersburg figures, covering the significant doctrines and issues of the movement. Each volume includes critical or explanatory notes, relevant introductions, and bibliographies of modern works. With few exceptions, the early texts are reproduced in unabridged form. Since the original Mercersburg materials are now extremely scarce, and almost impossible to assemble in their entirety, the Lancaster Series forms an invaluable resource for historians of American Christianity and, in particular, for serious students of theology. It will commend itself to all those who wish to understand the nineteenth-century background of contemporary Protestantism. Both of the Mercersburg theologians, Schaff and Nevin, looked forward to a new age of the church - an age which would call into unity and catholicity all the divisions of the body of Christ

"In order that the modern evangelical theology of Germany may become properly available for the benefit of the cognate Anglo-Saxon race, it must first be better and more generally understood, and placed in its proper light against both ignorant and malevolent censure, and indiscriminate praise. The growing interest in it seems to call for a work, which should furnish reliable and satisfactory information of its origin, history, connections and bearings, and thus serve as a guide to the English and American student through the luxuriant forest of Teutonic systems and opinions. To such a task the writer brings the advantages of a regular German university education, some experience as a university teacher, and an American residence, sufficiently long to enable him to understand the relations of German and Anglo-Saxon Christianity and literature, and to view the old world from the standpoint of the new
