A fresh, highly evocative, and stimulating interpretation of the historic Christian faith as reflected in the Apostles' and Nicene Creeds.
Gustaf Wingren believes that contemporary Christianity suffers from a neglect of the First Article--the doctrine of creation. In this book, he shows the importance of using the First Article (God as Creator) as the starting point for understanding the Christian faith and for living the Christian life. All other teachings find their proper meaning in relationship to this primary doctrine of faith.
The Second Article, on redemption by Jesus Christ, is interpreted by Wingren as a continuation of God's creative activity and as the fulfillment of God's original intention for his people.
In his discussion of the Third Article, Wingren points out that the Spirit of God is at work in every activity that promotes concern for others and that serves the well-being of people.
A skilled interpreter of the Bible, Wingren also draws on the insights of Luther and the Reformers as well as contemporary theologians as he underscores the perennial importance of the creeds of everyday Christian living.
