"Not long ago the Apostles' Creed was known by heart by a great number of people. It is an ancient, succinct summary of Christian belief, expressing the great fundamentals of faith relating to God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Alan Robinson's phrase-by-phrase commentary offers a comprehensive analysis, rich in bible references and application to the modern world. It will refresh those who have known and loved this statement of faith for many years, and will enlighten the newcomer equally. May this book serve to renew the use of the Apostles' Creed in contemporary worship, in personal devotion and in studies which introduce the faith and apply it to daily life." - The Right Reverend Jonathan Bailey, Bishop of Derby.
