The Creeds

In the 21st century, what do we really mean, what can we truly profess when we say the words of the Nicene Creed or the Apostles’ Creed? In this series, we explored the Creed in six sessions using Hans Küng's book Credo. The Apostles' Creed Explained for Today.

Also see our series on the Creed based on Luke Timothy Johnson's book, The Creed. What Christians Believe and Why It Matters, and our series on the Creed based on Rowan William's book Tokens of Trust, An Introduction to Christian Belief.

The presentations were by David Monyak.
