The Faith for Beginners
Author: Stephen K. Ray and R. Dennis Walters
Understanding the Creeds
Steve's long-awaited new book has been released. Faith For Beginners: Understanding the Creeds written with Dennis Walters in the Catholic Answers Beginner Series.
The Apostles' and Nicene Creeds are prayers most Catholics take for granted. We pray them by rote when we say the Rosary or go to Mass, often without thinking about, fully understanding, or even truly believing what we're saying.
And providing you with this understanding is what The Faith for Beginners is all about. It's a fascinating romp through the history of the Creed, closely examining what we believe and why, with references to Scripture, the Church Fathers, and Church Councils.
Here.s some more of what you'll discover in the pages of The Faith for Beginners:
Where the word "creed" comes from and what it means
Why the Catholic Church has a Creed, when many other religions don't, and seem to get along just fine without them
