Together with the Lord’s Prayer and the Hail Mary, the Apostles’ Creed is one of the most fundamental prayers in Christian tradition. It is a statement and a commitment. Sr Janet Schaeffler takes the Creed apart line by line in her new book, The Creed: A Catechist’s Guide. She examines its historical background, its theological implications and its personal impact, talking about how to teach it for all audiences. With questions, meditations, prayers and activity ideas, this is the most complete and stimulating resource for catechists on the Apostles‘ Creed. Here’s a sampling of what you will leam: – How can the Creed help Catholics understand Church teaching on creation and evolution, and the relationship between science and religion? – What’s the differnce between the Apostles ’ Creed and the Nicene Creed? – Why is Pilate the only person other than the Trinity and Mary mentioned in the Creed by name? – How can our Profession of Faith give us a deeper understanding of our own suffering, death and promised resurrection? And how can it help us discover the “unbelievable tenderness of God ” every day?
