5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent 'big picture' discussion of why we need creeds, 19 Sept. 2014

This review is from: Christian Belief for Everyone: Faith and Creeds (Christian Belief/Everyone 1) (Paperback)
As ever McGrath is a safe pair of hands, and on this occasion the book is a huge context for discussion of the creeds, rather than being entirely about the creeds themselves. This is not a line-on-line exposition of the creeds but a rhetoric for their existence and a great song about the benefits they bring. McGrath does 'big picture' really well and from his academic background delivers a rigorous set of logical and thought out arguments in favour of them.
He talks about the reciting of the creeds as a 'corporate act' and an act of alignment, where we choose to join ourselves to the belief system of those in the room with us instead of allowing the rising of 'maverick individualism'. If we could encourage all users of the creed to think of them in this way instead of just reciting them parrot fashion, this book would truly have delivered 'big style'.
Well done Mr McGrath! Well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking and inspirational, 16 Nov. 2013

I have always loved the Creeds and bought Alister McGrath's book after previewing a chapter on my Kindle app. I had expected insight and knowledge from McGrath (and got that) but felt I got more too - a book which engaged my heart and my imagination as well as my brain. Shades of C S Lewis.

An easy read but by no means shallow. You'll want to go on and read the rest of the series.
