"The purpose of this work is to provide in one volume the major theological affirmations of the Christian Churches. The selection has been limited to documents which have some measure of official status in the Church's history. In some cases the selection has been arbitrary, but an effort has been made to include creeds which are as representative as possible of the Christian community and which illustrate the developing intellectual consensus of the Church."--Preface

The book confronts the choices and questions that arise for young people--or anyone for that matter--trying to understand their place in the priesthood of all believers.-- PULISHER DESCRIPTION
Christian doctrine from the Bible to the present by John H Leith( )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Christianity has always been a "creedal" religion in that it has always been theological. It was rooted in the theological tradition of ancient Israel, which was unified by its historical credos and declaratory affirmations of faith. No pre-theological era has been discovered in the New Testament or in the history of the Christian community. From the beginning Christianity has been theological, involving men in theological reflection and calling them to declarations of faith. A non-theological Christianity has simply never endured, although such has been attempted, for instance, by individual seers in the sixteenth century and also by collaborators with totalitarian ideologies in the twentieth century. The creeds presented here range from the ancient faith of the Hebrews and the creed-like formulas of the New Testament to the Barmen declaration of 1934 (framed by the Christians in Germany who faced the threat of Nazism) and the Batak Creed of 1951 (in which Indonesian Christians gave authentic expression to their religious belief in the idiom of their own culture. All the creeds are in some sense "official," and every major division of Christendom is represented, including the Younger Churches. Th e volume ends with the messages of the most important assemblies dealing with the Ecumenical Movement."--Book cover
