Publisher's Summary

The Zondervan Biblical and Theological Lectures series provides a unique audio learning experience. Unlike a traditional audiobook's direct narration of a book's text, Know the Creeds and Councils: Audio Lectures includes high-quality live recordings of college-level lectures that cover the important points from each subject as well as relevant material from other sources. 

In every generation, the Christian church must interpret and restate its bedrock beliefs, answering the challenges and concerns of the day. In Know the Creeds and Councils: Audio Lectures, priest and author Justin Holcomb explores centuries of creeds, councils, catechisms, and confessions - not with a dry focus on dates and places, but with an emphasis on the living tradition of Christian belief and why it matters for our lives today.

Each lecture explains a key statement of faith and its historical context, provides a simple overview of the statement's content and key points, and reflects on its contemporary relevance. As a part of the KNOW series, Know the Creeds and Councils: Audio Lectures is designed for personal study or classroom use, but also for small groups and Sunday schools wanting to more deeply understand the foundations of the faith.

Not Your Average Audiobook

Justin Holcomb does not read us his book on the Creeds and Councils of the Early Christian Church, but rather he gives us an excellent summary of the material in the book and gives more detail than could be included in the book. You should buy both. The book is a great summary of the Creeds and Councils and the audiobook fills out the corners so to speak. His delivery could be a little more interesting. Sometimes he sounds like he is simply reading from a page, but the material is interesting and useful. The Creeds of the Church were brief statements of doctrine designed for use in worship, rituals (such as baptism) or education (such as new convert classes) in a time when the majority of the people were illiterate and/or did not own a Bible. The Councils were the meetings of Church officials to iron out doctrinal and practical differences. This book makes both very understandable. #Christianity #ChurchHistory #Doctrine #Historicaldocuments #Educational #Tagsgiving #Sweepstakes
