How does the story of Christianity and the tenets of the faith fit into the grand scheme of transcultural spirituality? In this inspiring book, first published in 1904, the renowned spiritualist Charles W. Leadbeater places Christianity into the larger context of human religious experience-with a specific eye toward demonstrating how adherents of theosophy, the esoteric philosophy popular at the turn of the 20th century that attempted to reconcile science and religion, could maintain their Christian faith. Seekers after spiritual wisdom and students of comparative mythology will find this a fascinating read. British author CHARLES WEBSTER LEADBEATER (1854-1934) was ordained as an Anglican priest, but later joined the prominent Theosophical Society and traveled to India to study alternative spiritual and occult practices, eventually settling into his life as a clairvoyant and author. His other works include Man Visible and Invisible and The Science of the Sacrament.

Creeds in the Making

Alan Richardson's Creeds in the Making was first published more than forty years ago, in January 1935.

Alan Richardson's Creeds in the Making was first published more than forty years ago, in January 1935. After ten reprints, it went out of print in 1975 to make way, we hoped, for a new work which would reflect the scholarship of a new generation. There is, however, still no short inexpensive paperback available which illustrates the early development of the creeds and Christian doctrine to a general audience in quite the same way as this does, with its freshness, charm and that almost timeless quality of writing and judgment which was so characteristic of its author. So we are happy that it should be reissued for the 1980s, as an introduction to those coming to creeds and doctrine for the first time, and as a fitting memorial to a great modern pastor and teacher. From the first reviews Mr Richardson has a true teacher's gift, that of making his subject live and relating it to modern experience and modern knowledge of the universe. He tells a story, and tells it well. Nor is he content with telling: he explains. He takes the principal doctrines of the Christian creed, shows how they came to be defined and what is their lasting value' (CEN). `In six chapters, Mr Alan Richardson covers the theology of the creed down to the article of belief in the Holy Ghost. What he gives us is very like a course of lectures to theological students, carefully worked out, scholarly and full, yet simply expressed' (Church Times). Alan Richardson, who died in 1975, was Dean of York and before that Professor of Christian Theology in the University of Nottingham.

The Apostle's Creed is the most popular summary of the Christian faith. Yet, for its simplicity, the Creed expresses profound truths about God's redemptive work that are full of implications for the believer's faith and practice. In this book, author Stanley D. Gale familiarizes modern readers with this ancient statement of belief, grounded in Scripture, and shows its demand for a faith that enlightens the mind, enflames the heart, and engages the will with the wonders of God's saving grace. - from cover material.

The Mystery of Faith

The Mystery of Faith

Using Scripture and contemporary theology, this book analyzes the phrase "the mystery of faith" found at the center of the Church's Eucharistic liturgy.

Using Scripture and contemporary theology, this book analyzes the phrase "the mystery of faith" found at the center of the Church's Eucharistic liturgy. Josef Jungmann concluded from his historical research that the Eucharistic symbol expressed the whole of faith for the early Church. Understood in this sense, it can still function today as what Karl Rahner calls a "short formula" or creed of the mystery of Christian faith.

This thoughtful, fully accessible exploration of the creed, the list of beliefs central to the Christian faith, delves into its origins and illuminates the contemporary significance of why it still matters. During services in Christian communities, the members of the congregation stand together to recite the creed, professing in unison the beliefs they share. For most Christians, the creed functions as a sort of “ABC” of what it means to be a Christian and to be part of a worldwide movement. Few people, however, know the source of this litany of beliefs, a topic that is further confused by the fact that there are two different versions: the Apostle’s Creed and the Nicene Creed. In The Creed, Luke Timothy Johnson, a New Testament scholar and Catholic theologian, clarifies the history of the creed, discussing its evolution from the first decades of the Christian Church to the present day. By connecting the deep theological conflicts of the early Church with the conflicts and questions facing Christians today, Johnson shows that faith is a dynamic process, not based on a static set of rules. Written in a clear, graceful style and appropriate for Christians of all denominations, The Creed is destined to become a classic of modern writings on spirituality.

Philip Schaff's The Creeds of Christendom is a massive set, originally published in three volumes and here reproduced across five volumes, cataloging and explaining the many different creeds from the myriad Christian denominations. The differences in belief between Calvinists, Lutherans, and Presbyterians, for example, can often be subtle, so a thorough examination of the particulars as well as an explanation for how those different beliefs result in a different worldview is necessary. Volume One: Part I covers: . creeds in general . the Ecumenical creeds . the creeds of the Greek Church . the creeds of the Roman Church . the creeds of the Evangelical Churches . the creeds of the Evangelical Lutheran Churches . the creeds of the Evangelical Reformed Churches. This volume contains the table of contents for all of Volume One. Swiss theologian PHILIP SCHAFF (1819-1893) was educated in Germany and eventually came to the United States to teach at the German Reformed Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania. He wrote a number of books and hymnals for children, including History of the Christian Church and The Creeds of the Evangelical Protestant Churches.
